Seating in area close to the waterfalls is the only thing that made this dining worthwhile. Slow service . Younger waitress was very friendly and very good at her job. Out dated decor ,dark and dirty looking atmosphere .

While staying in the area with breakfast and dinner included we wanted something light for lunch . Friendly service, good menu choices, tasty food and the sound of rushing water over rocks just outside the window. Just what we wanted.

We ate at the mad musher last week - they had just finished the dinner rush on Friday around 7, so we got in without a wait. We shared an appetizer of potato croquettes, venison stew, and a dessert.

The food is just ok, but you know the owner and the service folks are terrific. We had a decent dinner here, just expect average food but that is ok! Sometimes that is what you want, a basic dinner.

We went here two nights in a row, mostly because it's just about the only place in town! Fortunately, the food was good with many different types of choices. We had trout and a coconut veggie curry the first night, and salmon and a specialty burger the second night. Everything was good, although the service was a bit slow do... More

We had supper and breakfast here and both were very good. The fried pickerel and chicken cordon bleu were both surprisingly good and made from scratch. At supper the restaurant was almost full, but the service was still quick and very friendly. You could tell the food was good because there were locals and tourists there. Our table had a... More

Food was delicious and loved the art work throughout. The staff were understaffed and not very helpful.
