Stopped in while snowmobiling for a drink and some wings. The building itself is worth stopping at. Really cool old train stop. The service is friendly and the wings were great. We will be making this a regular stop.

The place was packed with a few hundred sledders. The wait was not long and the staff kept up very well. The food was tasty and hot. The place was cozy and warm which is great for a sledder.

Dined on Monday for Meat Loaf Monday. Meat loaf nothing special. Mashed potatoes not mashed. Not just the new lumpy style either... just slightly mash w/ big chunks. Gravy tasted canned. Food needed seasoning. Just average dinner. Waitress Sarah friendly and attentive.
