“Wonderful food and staff”
Reviewed October 19, 2012

We ended up at this restaurant after church as it was close by so thought we would give it a try. It was a wonderful choice. My husband and I both had the Turkey Dinner special served on Sundays. The turkey was right off the bird, stuffing and mashed potatoes and gravy were superb. Nothing was salty and it was all homemade. We both felt it was the best turkey dinner we both have had in a very long time. We can't wait to go back and try other dishes. It is so wonderful to finally have someplace to go that serves quality food in the lakes region area with reasonable prices.

“Started Well, Ended Disappointed”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

Started our visit off with great service and wonderful apps. Salad was great and than it all went south! I ordered the Chicken Cordon Bleu and it appeared to be fried chicken fingers with ham and cheese sauce between them with a gravy on top!!! Very dry and flavorless! Husband had Prime Rib and he did enjoy it. It was cooked well and came to the table hot.
Decor was lacking, I guess they were in a rush to open and get some of the summer buisness before it fades away. But, it does feel cold and does not make you want to stick around. Almost gave the impression that if they could close shop overnight if things don't work out.
I would have to say, until I read some positive reviews or get better feedback from friends who have dined there I would not return.

We went on a recommendation and were not disappointed. The food was very well presented and the people working at the restaurant were terrific and seemed to be enjoying themselves.
