The chef here is a master at packing a dish with flavor and cooking it to perfection. We ordered from a seasonal special menu. My wild Alaskan salmon was done exactly right and topped with a tasty garnish of vinagry herbs and bacon; the sauce added a bouquet of flavors and scents that complemented wonderfully. My husband's marlin was also very tasty and perfectly cooked. The clam chowder was a hit because it was full of tender, delicious clams, but it was a little too thick with spinach, carrots, and other ingredients. Appetizers and sides were creative and mostly excellent; the butternut squash melted in my mouth. (The menu notes that they emphasize locally sourced, sustainably grown ingredients.) The staff is very attentive and pleasant, and they work together to keep things moving. We showed up at 4:30 on a Friday; by 5:15 the place was jammed with a great mix of people. The Hideaway is tucked into a low spot at the end of the Hwy 36 service road, easy to overlook. it looks like an old lake cabin and indeed it has a long, interesting history. Don't be fooled; it's very clean and well cared for, and the food inside is top-of-the-line in our book. We'll be back.
