His place has been open for sometime now and has a nice menu prepared from items that are available at what ever time in this area. Although this can have its challenges the chef is very adept at taking what is available and making wonderful meals!

We've here a bunch and Kevin never disappoints. The menu changes often, but is always diverse in its offerings. Best food in the lakes region.

Kevin does a great job here. Food is all within 50 miles and that spells FRESH. Nice place that gets packed so find a table next to the road or by the window, Outside eating in the summer under the great old train station of redstone.
