“Perfect Getaway”
Reviewed January 22, 2014

Gaston's is the most beautiful place you can imagine for a family getaway. The food is top-notch, the facilities are awesome and the view is priceless! I would recommend this to anyone for a vacation spot, an overnight trip, or just a day trip for lunch!

Love the 2 hour drive up to this restaurant on the river but was a little disappointed this time.

We went on Saturday...there were two other tables finishing their meals as we walked in. We had 3 couples and all but one wanted the Club Sandwich (which is AWESOME) and River Chips (also AWESOME) but they were out of ham and turkey. So we changed our order - all but one of us ordered different types of burgers - the exception was the open faced roast beef.

The first couple that was there left, and another couple came in. They ordered, ate their meal, and left before we ever got our meal - it was about an hour. We never got an explanation as to why it took so long but I’m guessing it was probably the open faced roast beef - we all got our food and it was really good but several of the burgers were cold and we didn’t want to send them back because it had taken so long to get them.

When we got our tickets the waitress had gotten 2 of the burgers mixed up - we just got 2 regular burgers and they charged us for a Gaston’s burger that should have gone on another ticket. We decided again that it would take too long to correct it and just squared up with each in the parking lot.

I’m not sure what was going on but it just wasn’t their normal great service. I have to say the food is great and you can’t beat the view though.

Gaston's has a great grass runway airport (3M0) right next to the lodge and restaurant, making it a great fly-in destination. We only stayed an hour or so for lunch (which was excellent) and we briefly toured the facilities, but this is definitely a destination to fly back to when I have more time.
