My husband and I had the opportunity to have a quiet lunch together while our children were in ski school . What a lovely location and view.

Had a small wait which gave us the opportunity to start with a drink at the bar. I had a "make your own Bloody Mary" and my husband had the Ubu ale . Both were great .

We both had the chicken salad sandwiches. Service was very attentive and pleasant . The view can't be beat. We will return .

Two couples had lunch on a Friday Afternoon. Very nice cozy rustic ambiance overlooking Mirror Lake.
Because the dining area is small, you may have to wait a bit; we had to wait about 45 minutes.
Once seated, service was professional and efficient.
Menu is somewhat limited.
We had Squash Soup, Apricot Chicken Salad Sandwich, Chili, and Shaved Sirloin Sandwich. All items were very good.

It would of gotten a 4 on atmosphere but the wind was blowing all the smoke down the chimney and back into the restaurant so it was like being in a really smoky bar. Not sure what they could of done about it though. We ordered the Caesar salad, chili and flat bread pizzas and all were really good! Service was friendly and nice. My kids ate all of their pizza's and hot dog. love that the kids had an option of fruit or cooked veg rather than french fries. We may go back before we leave.

This is a gem. Cute decor, good food, and fun daily cocktail specials. Both my son (12) and I found excellent choices, well prepared. The menu is small but good enough we went back twice during our stay. The service was acceptable, but given late lunch timing and not too many on the floor, it could have been a titch more attentive.

We were just there Friday night -- we had a large party but got right in! Shared NACHO appetizer then some flat bread pizzas. I had a half of the sliced sirloin sandwich -- it was delish & service was great! Beautiful location & fire out on the deck. Perfect for the village & exactly what you would expect!
