History lesson and hiking combination. Choice of 0.5 or 1.5 mile trail. Fascinating walk through Lava flows.

Always stop here for dinner when in the area. Best food in the basin, hope you like potatoes!!! The salad and all entree's are great, some of the best potatoe casaroles you'll find anywhere. Can't be beat when you're really hungry.

Standard American fare with a salad to boot. Good though. Worth a drive from Tule for the best dinner in the area. Friendly and casual service.

A group of geologist colleagues and I ate here two nights in a row, in part because the other offerings in this remote, rural area were so limited. The service was excellent (our waitress was quite amusing and helpful), the ambience was friendly, and the food varied from okay to very good. We arrived both nights relatively near closing time,...

We ate dinner here at the end of our birding tour of Tulelake. We a treat it was...a wonderful salad bar started us off. When it was announced that there were only 2 New York steaks left, my wife and I quickly ordered them and they were cooked perfectly, served with locally grown potatoes and accompanied by a local beer...we...

We stopped by there recently for some hot chocolate, iced tea, and dessert. Normally we would have eaten lunch there but had only recently had a big breakfast. The drinks and dessert were good and the decor is with artifacts from the Modoc Indian War - hence the name of the restaurant. I am a former resident of this area... More

The service was great and felt very comfortable. We sat inside but the patio looked like a great place to sit also. The food was good and nobody complained. The only bummer was I really wanted a chicken fried steak and they said it was frozen from a box and not made fresh. Ended up having the fish and chips... More

Far from anywhere, you can find a variety of tasty, healthy, and quality food choices. In fact, you will not find better for miles so make sure you stop. Marietta cannot make a bad pie.

Food was not bad except for the salad bar, which could have been better. However, this is about the only restaurant around for miles.
