We just popped in for a quick lunch while we waited for our river rafting trip and were absolutely shocked by the food. The chowder was the best we've tasted and the service was terrific. We were so impressed we made a return trip for breakfast and were equally impressed. Gwin sure knows how to keep people coming back. This is a "must try"

Had the smoked salmon chowder and it was delicious. One of the best chowder I've ever had. We also had the blackened halibut which was also very yummy. We ate breakfast the next morning before we headed out. My husband had the chicken fried steak and says it was the most tender he's ever had. I had the eggs with reindeer sausage which was also very good

We had sausage biscuits and gravy for breakfast. It was fantastic, but the portions are large. Next time we can share on meal. Staff was excellent and very friendly.

Cute rustic roadhouse setting. Gwen's has a great breakfast menu. Our food was served hot and was delicious.

I would have given Gwen's a 5 rating, but our waitress was either having a bad day or wasn't awake yet. She gave my breakfast to someone else which ended up with me having bacon instead of sausage and she overcharged our bill. When the mistakes were brought to her attention, she very quickly apologized and corrected the issue.
