We are so happy we did! The restaurant is clean, the seating, both inside and out, is charming and accommodating, the service was terrific and the... More

Fresh homemade and delicious. Didn't really try other resturaunts in the area. Breakfast at Whipering Pines was great and once you try this place, why search further?

All the years that we have been attending Whisky Flat Days weekend and we've never been in this restaurant before. This was the perfect first visit as it was a cold, rainy evening and the warm, comfortable ambience with a crackling fireplace made for a great evening.

So this was a dinner stop in this small community and was welcomed warmly by the manager. After the server took our drink and dinner order, she came back promptly with the wine and water. But then after that, all we heard were crickets - no one checked on us and after 45 minutes of seeing others who had arrived... More
