Great food. We have had breakfast and lunch here. If you like a filling breakfast this place is for you. If you like Bison this is the place for you. And do walk around the grounds to check out the Mill and the fish pond.

Nice place and good food. We've been here for lunch several times and breakfast once. Lunch was very good. We like the Buffalo BBQ, Ally's Locked and Loaded Chicken Sandwich, and the Great White Buffalo Sandwich.
