Great place for a quick breakfast near the park. Food is good and their muffins are excellent. Price is a little more because it's a tourist town but still reasonable.

The restaurant was recommended by a local. We had the salads and soup. The salads where fresh and plentiful. The soup was good but on the salty side for my husband. The service was good. I would recommend making a reservation for a table by the river. A nice experience.

We ate here three times in two days so we were obviously very happy with our experiences. We had breakfast twice and dinner once and had our meals in the "casual" dining room. There is a more fancy dining room that is also used at dinner. The wait staff was very attentive, helpful and personable. Their breakfast menu is quite... More

Breakfast is Excellent, service is spectacular, and it's close to the park after early morning photographing and you're hungry and don't want to wait in a long line.

Good food and nice server. Breakfast isn't formal but casual. Nice waffle and eggs. For dinner it is a little more than casual but not formal. But, the food is really good and the view of wildlife real nice.

Both food and staff were great! Away from downtown, but easy to get to and places to park, with nice shops next door.

We decided to try this place because we got a 10 percent discount whilst staying at the Alpine Trail hotel across the road. The place is divided into a restaurant and a cafe. The restaurant was full so we used the cafe. The staff were really nice and friendly. The food came pretty quick and was okay.

Took a drive in the area and stopped in for dinner. Loved the smoked trout! Wife's French Onion soup was also good, and my friend enjoyed his Santa Fe Pork. Server was friendly and didn't auction off the food, which was nice. Menu looked good, and would stop back if in the area again.

Thank Stu C
