Totally enjoy sitting outside on a great day, overlooking the lake. Fishing Camp atmosphere, with great home cooking. The hamburgers are their signature plate. Looks like a hundred hamburgers to pick from and all look great. No one in the group was disappointed.

This is my must-visit restaurant...More

We go to Stony Ridge often as we have a cabin in the area. The burgers are huge; even if you order the wimp burger. The ground beef is fresh and tasty on a bakery bun. The onion rings are also huge and battered, yum!...More

This place has about 50 burgers on the menu and they all start at 1/2 pound but the server said "sometimes they are bigger because they really don't weigh them." You can order a "wimpy version" for $1.50 less. 3 of us dined and had...More
