“Cute. Nice staff. Overpriced. Poor quality.”
Reviewed April 3, 2013

Cute little place with nice service but terrible overpriced food. So disappointing and $20+ plates. I guess it's a place you only should order the pizza or burger. Sad. I left hungry.

“Slow service but good food”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

The service was crazy slow but the burgers and fries were quite tasty. They have a rotating international menu that we plan on trying soon. The location is a bit out of the way but it's a nice roadhouse atmosphere.

“Nice atmosphere”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

Cozy atmosphere. I really enjoy going in the summer for live music outside. The grounds are beautiful and the music is very good. Very family oriented. On Sunday nights they bbq a whole pig, which I have yet to try. I have heard it's really fantastic. The appetizers are really good and the menu has something for everyone.

“Good food and music.”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

Eating out on the back patio is spectacular. The service is good, food has been good to great. Friends have had them run out of specials early.

“Good food a roadside restaurant”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

We often stop at the Old 5 Mile house when retuning from skiing, They make their own bread and the soups are amazing, the French onion soup was as good as you can get in Europe. Some of the entres were a bit pricy but the food was excellent. They usually have a local band playing at dinner. The place is laid back for a restaurant with such good food. That's part of its charm.
