We had multiple breakfasts, lunches, and dinners there over a 3 day period. The quality was always very good and consistent. The variety kept us coming back, and the wait staff was very welcoming and accommodating.

After enjoying many meals at this tastefully appointed restaurant I was afraid that after my vacation I would split my pants. However, everything was so fresh and perfectly seasoned, it was weighed down with lots of fats. I feel like the meals I enjoyed there energized me for the daily hikes I took on the property.
