Charming owner is a delightful host, great view of lake waters, interesting and colorful locals and tourists stopping in; we enjoyed ourselves much. This is a cute little village - and this place is the heart of it! Didn't eat here - and wish we had...as struggled to get served at nearby Voyagaire Lodge restaurant.

Bartender was a delight, stopped after fishing all day with friends and had a great time. She made you feel like a regular.

We needed air conditioning and a place to just catch our breath. The weather was HOT so cold drinks and Wi-Fi was a must! The staff was very friendly!

Don't forget to go to the Thursday night smorgasbord! I didn't eat anything I didn't like at the grill. Also, visit the bar. Steve plays the piano every Thursday, and a band is often playing in the bar Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

This is a nice bar with friendly staff. Did not eat there but hear it is pretty good. Go there with friends while snowmobiling in the area and we always need to stop in.
