We went in at 16-30 to be told that 10% would be knocked off the bill as 16-30/18-00 was "Happy Hour. Menu is great with something for everybody however they... More

The food here was by far the best in Franz Josef. A little more expensive than other places we tried, but worth it

Alice May took nice care of us at dinner. Food came promptly. Kids' chocolate sundaes are good for the Dads to.

The night we arrived, via restaurant transport, the fireplace was lit and welcoming. I had beef cheek with spring vegetables. My husband had the roast pork from the 3 course special menu ($35). My meal was cooked perfectly with tender... More

Went here as it had over 1000 reviews with a 4 rating. Only a couple had 4.5 but like 50 reviews. Well it was worth it. Chicken burgers and chips are great, pork was succulent, and fish of the day was superb. The large chips with the burgers are the best I've had in quite a while. Desserts, chocolate Sunday,... More
