Food is always great with simple preparation and huge servings. You never leave hungry. Rustic setting two hours travel from Bend. Have plenty of gas to get there and back.

Amazing amount of food! Everything was delicious- we didn't leave hungry!! Inside the restaurant is quaint, all old wood boards and lots of historical items on the walls.
