Went with friends first time there I had the pollack fish fry with a baked potato and Cole slaw. It was excellent. My wife had the smothered chicken with mushrooms and potato salad with a green salad. Again excellent. Total bill was less than $25

It is our go-to place Thursday nights for gigantic wings, broached, with fires and cole slaw -- all you can eat. Friendly waitresses, happy crowd, nice, classic small town knotty pine lodge/restaurant.

This is our go-to place for Friday night fish. Love the all-you-can-eat pollack. They give you a large portion the first time so we've never been able to eat more. They also have excellent Italian food. We only get to this area a few times...More
