Well-prepared food, excellent service, and charming atmosphere all contribute to this being a favorite with locals for that "special" night. Prices are high for us locals, but visitors don't flinch when their check comes!

I had their Prime rib and my husband had their meatloaf. All we did was rave about this place while we were eating. They were down on staff so service was a little slow but the staff were totally awesome and food was amazing.

Been here several night for date night. The food is very good and the service is excellent. A little on the spendy side for an everyday night out.

We were reminded of a high end, family run, comfortable lodge in the mountains . Great atmosphere and the staff was very friendly and professional. The food was excellent and we will return to this restaurant whenever in this area again.

Ate here 2 times and it was great both times. Great selection of high quality food for a small town area. Chef obviously has some training. Quality of food is above standard of most small town places.

Was looking for a place for dinner and driving by it smelled wonderful. Service was very good and friendly. Food was very disappointing. It was a little slow coming out and it was extremely bland. Not worth it for the price.More

We are know for our succulent prime rib, steaks, Gorgonzola cheese salad as well as our French onion soup and homemade cheese sticks. We are a casual upscale steakhouse which also serves a variety of seafood, chicken, pork, pasta, salads and well as burgers and a variety of incredible appetizers. We have a full bar and serve dinner both in our lounge as well as our dining room. We also have a loft which seats 55 and a private banquet room which seats 25. In the summer and fall, we serve on our patio on weekends. We cater to groups of all sizes both at our establishment and in local parks, homes and a variety of settings and have done groups up to 1300. We love to serve families and have a kids section for children as well as two functioning trains which delight the young at heart in our dining room.
