Great service, the food is always good. We take all of our visitors there for at least one meal while they are here. Breakfast very good too. The soups are one of the reason I love to eat there. The perch dinner is the best.

Great service, great chili (other than mine), and the burgers and onion rings are good also. Nobody in the group I was with had any complaints. Very snowmobiler friendly.
