Evening we tried here tasted good. The wild rice toast, wild rice French toast, hash brown, all the omelette. I saw a for sale sign outside but the food here beats chocolate moose by a huge margin. Only one employee on staff so management needs to get that sorted because service was great as well as the food. Also, keep... More

Pay before you eat? Owner is the cook that doesn't know how to cook and is very rude. Some of the driest eggs i have ever had. In my opinion they should not even be in the restraunt business.

Breakfast for 4 was over $60 which I get sort of. Resort community, resort prices. But still. Admittedly, the food was quite good though service could have been a little better considering we were the only people in the restaurant at the time. There's a for sale sign in the window, so I suspect changes are coming

Went in for breakfast, ordered bacon and asked that it not been cooked very crisp. The waiter stumbled over himself saying "the cooks wouldn't cook it that way". When asked why....he mumbled that it was against the law....WHAT????? Goodness I didn't ask for it raw.... I explained that if they wouldn't cook it that way I didn't want it. Sure... More

They have an interesting variety of meals, at reasonable prices. The service was fast and friendly, and they have a nice deck to eat on if you don't want to eat indoors. I had the Southwest Panini, and it was probably one of the best that I've ever had.

Prices are outrageous. Flies flying around your head when eating. Had a dirty glass and utensils. The mustard bottle had something dripping off of it and a dried ring fell off when opened. Child menu portions are to laugh at. Ordered chicken which is a chicken breast but when brought to table there was 4 small cut pieces. Had to... More

We ate here and were very happy we did. They post their menu on boards, so you order when you come in. We poured our coffee and water and sat down. It was a relief to eat in a place that was not overly crowded and crazy. I had an omelet with feta cheese, spinach, green peppers and pesto. The... More

Excellent food and service. Large portions and decent prices. Very friendly people. The young lady working that morning went out of her way to return a hat that someone left on the bench...she literally ran after them and came back smiling! You can tell when someone really enjoys what they do.
