Always fine menu selection. Friendly wait staff. Long time Geauga county restaurant, hang out. Enjoy just having appetizers with drinks before dinner or just drinks and nibbles. Entertainment on the lovely patio thru out the summer.

I've been going here for over 27 years. Light-hearted atmosphere with a cozy taverne charm that takes you back to a ski lodge, especially in the winter. Great food, friendly service. Ask for a table by the fireplace. Christmas time is the best! Outdoor seating...More
