We had heard this was a good stop for a meal. Food was okay. Place was clean, service was adequate, but of minimal communication. Did not feel welcomed as a customer as most places in Cascade. Maybe we stopped on an off day for the wait staff.

I will start by saying this was probably one of their busiest days of the year, Winter Carnival. We ordered pizza because there were such good reviews for it. We stopped by 2 hours early to order ahead knowing they were so busy and when we came back we still had to wait another 30 minutes! The staff was not... More

Its January in Idaho -8 deg . on a Saturday evening you've been playing in the snow all day and you are starved. Make the stop on Main St. Cascade. We found a window seat and could watch the traffic go by and even saw a small herd of deer walking down the alley across the street. This little gem... More

We stopped in for dinner about 7:45 pm on a Sat. in early Sept. The place was packed and seemed under-staffed, but the waitress was pleasant and tried to get everyone served! No wait for a table. We ordered the house special of the evening, Chicken Alfredo with linguini. The side salad was generous and delicious, very colorful! The main... More

We were so glad they stayed open until 10 pm (except Sunday). We were famished after arriving in town late. Good burger and pizza. I'd stay away from Asian special

Never got my beverage, after 3rd request I settled for water (place was busy, but still, 3 times?). Hamburger was ok, bun fell apart and had to use fork to finish burger, lettuce, tomato, etc were fresh. Fries were more like potato sticks then fries. I doubt I'd go back.

I cannot speak for the other food items, but can say the Cinnamon rolls are worth a go. The other items on the menu seem very reasonably priced. I would like to try their prime rib sometime and they have a very reasonably priced breakfast billboard. Don't expect more than a small town diner.

Sadly our chowder was a bit scorched and was served barely lukewarm whereas everything else we ordered was very overcooked. The fries were passable, but the fish was nothing more than overly deep fried fish sticks. So very disappointing. And the waitress forgot we were there We had to flag her down for water refills.

This is at the top of our favorite places to eat. Great atmosphere. Wonderful food and friendly staff. Both of us ordered the Prime RIb dinner. It had great flavor, very tender. The garlic bread was a slice of heaven!! We are looking for reasons to go back to there soon. You won't leave hungry.

Stopped off for breakfast on a day trip skiing in McCall. Fast friendly service, generous portions and good prices. This is a regular stop for us in Cascade.
