Excellent wait staff, food comes out piping hot! We visited on a Friday night, entering at 5:30, and not realizing they closed at 6. Never once did they hint that they were closing soon, and were generous as to give us dessert on the house. Further, they rewarded our kids with chocolate bars for their good behavior. My steak had great seasoning and was cooked to the doneness I requested. My wife's chicken quesadilla was very good. And the portion sizes for the kids' plates were very generous. Be aware that they no longer serve beer and wine. We will definitely be back, much earlier than closing next time!

After working in the east mountains for the past eight months, I decided to take the family by for lunch. The only disappointment was that I’d waited so long. The food is great, the employees and owner are very friendly, the price is right, atmosphere is rustic and homey. I was even able to help the owner identify the large tree he has inside, as it’s a fairly rare species. I very much look forward to going back!
