Excellent food and friendly service. Home made pies by the owner. May eat out back on warm summer days. People come from miles around to dine here. Their occasional brunch buffets are awesome.

Always stop here for dinner when in the area. Best food in the basin, hope you like potatoes!!! The salad and all entree's are great, some of the best potatoe casaroles you'll find anywhere. Can't be beat when you're really hungry.
