Fast, friendly service. The food was very good, had a lot of unusual choices on the menu. Got the feeling it's a place tourist and locals both frequent.

Big tasty portions! Spacious and even has boat parking. In town on snowmobile trail. Gets the smoked chops at breakfast. Split your meal if your are watching your caloric intake (the cinnamon role is tasty, but the size of your head).
