We stopped here after visiting Bald Falls because of the reviews. The food was more than adequate, the view exceptional, the younger waitress was friendly and helpful...the other was a bit grumpy at the register. We would not go out of our way to eat...More

We try to stop by several times a month. Wonderful ladies run this establishment serving tasty sandwiches and homemade desserts. The adult grilled cheese, southwestern, and chicken salad are favorite sandwiches. Today I tried the ham and bean soup (would love the recipe), so tasty...More
