We've had some great meals here and some not so great meals here. It is really a hit or miss. Our biggest disappointment came when we ordered the filet mignon and were served a sirloin they were trying to pass off as filet because they were out of the filet. I would have preferred to be told so I could have made a different choice. We were given the "meat" free, but they still charged us for the potato and salad. We were not looking for a freebie, but expected to be treated with enought respect as to not try to pass of a sirloin as a filet. Made us feel like they considered us idiots that would not know the difference.

We had a great dinner here. Food was delicious and perfectly prepared; the service was friendly and prompt, and the atmosphere on a weekend evening was lively and fun. We loved it!

Since we didn't catch our own walleye, we had it here! Fried and baked - both types were delicious! Our waiter, Wes, knew the menu very well and was very attentive and friendly. Couldn't ask for better! We came back a second time for prime rib and NY strips - again, the food was excellent and the atmosphere laid back and friendly.

We had walleye with all the fixings! Y'all made three old wilderness guides very happy and satisfied. Our server was outstanding. The atmosphere was just right and it made for almost pleasant meal.
