Recommended stop by the owner of the lodge we stayed at nearby; really glad we did. A truly rustic, lakefront, locals type of bar and restaurant. Run by one of the family owners, Tawny; she was hilarious and really friendly. Great selection of craft beers...More

I had so much fun! The staff were friendly, the drinks were really good and some were unique to the area. The food was fresh and tasty. The view was beautiful, sunset over a gorgeous lake, what could be better.

You have to stop by for a drink! We snowmobiled and stopped in years ago. We found our picture on the wall- brought back such happy memories. Typical old bar- sassy/sharp owner/server. A must-see on your vacation in the area.

It too an hour to get our food. It was good but nothing special. Place was kinda of dirty with dead gnats on the window sills. People were nice
