Wow! We drove down from Lake Tahoe to catch the fall beauty and to have dinner for our 37 wedding anniversary. This little resort is pure charm all the way. I'd say they are a bit pricey, though. But the food is really, really good. We started our evening on the patio with a bottle of fabulous wine (Macchia 2010 Sangiovese from Amador County) and chips and salsa. The salsa was homemade and very good - more like a pico de gilo. I thought the serving was skimpy for $8, though. We ordered the rib eye steak with roasted potatoes and fresh string beans. The steak was cooked to perfection (medium rare) and had a delicious sauce on it, and the simple potatoes were roasted nicely, and the beans were tender crisp. Perfect. Our waiter surprised us with a delicious berry cobler with icecream for our anniversary.
All in all, we will go back. The service is excellent, the food is terrific and the location is awesome!
