“Beautiful view”
Reviewed April 30, 2014

This little place is a bit out of the way from the main strip but definitely worth driving the extra 5 minutes to eat. The workers were very nice and prepared the food quickly and served it to us at our tables. It is a fairly small menu but everything on it is a fair price and tastes delicious. Along with the great food and service is the view. There is a waterfall beside the seating area and it is beautiful. Try this place out!

“A "Must go to" place!!!”
Reviewed April 30, 2014

I loved this place! The owners are so friendly. We didn't purchase a meal because, unfortunately, we had already eaten but we did get ice cream. I had a "Friendly Falls Cookie Dough Pizza". It's not exactly like it sounds,but it was SO GOOD!! It is a big, warm, homemade, chocolate chip cookie with a large scoop of vanilla ice cream topped off with chocolate and caramel syrup. I really regretted eating before we went there because the food looked and smelled delicious!! The waterfalls are beautiful. I wish we could have stayed in the area longer so we could have went back for a meal. If you're in the area, make sure you stop by. You will love it1

“What A Cool Place to Eat!”
Reviewed April 24, 2014

Look out! You will miss it if you don't look really hard. In fact we did, and had to turn around. Don't be surprised by the "quirky" look of the outside, it is a delightful place to eat. We were returning from a day in the mountains and had read about this place on trip advisor. We love trying the "mom and pop" places. At any rate, the scenery is unbelievable and unexpected. Everyone eats outside after ordering from the inside counter. We each had burgers and fries, which were very tasty. The owner was so sweet and wonderful to talk to. They have personalized this area and it is very unique. Most certainly worth the stop, and a turn around if need be. Away from the crowds and probably our favorite dining experience by far.

“Memorable and delicious”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

What a hidden gem! This restaurant is located at a waterfall along the roadway. Everyone can eat outside in a covered area or you can sit by the water. The view is magnificent and the food is delicious. I had the trout dinner and was not disappointed. The food is well prepared and the corn salad was creative and yummy. Food was hot and it came out quickly. We were there for lunch, but they have live entertainment at night, I understand. Recommended!
