Good service, good coffee, eggs done to perfection. Portions were generous without being wasteful. We left satisfied, not stuffed. Especially good hash browns. Server was new to the profession, and brought a very sunny, humorous attitude. We will be back.

This is great Idaho down-home cooking and it is wonderful. Try the ribeye steak…you will not believe how good it is. The salad, homemade cornbread and baked Idaho potato make this a feast fit for a king…or queen!

We went on valentines 2/14/2014. There were four of us we asked for 2 separate tickets. We where told very rudely they do not split tickets... The waitress was very rude we thought maybe it was a lack of sunshine because it was snowy. The owner was so busy selling blue jeans and was bringing out arm loads of blue jeans for one lady that we thought selling clothing was more important than serving food. I wonder what the owner will say about this. If you want to buy purses and clothing this is the place to go. Don't go for the food because they don't split tickets.

I am slightly unclear what you wanted to see for yourself. A few simple explanations;
At the time I brought out the Levis for the gal, this was a special request per her. You are unaware of her story/circumstances so please withhold judgment. Plus, it was the perfect time for her to come back to our business, since it was right before our dinner rush.
Proceeds that are generated from our Daisy's Angels' Boutique go towards encouraging and helping women and young girls within our community and beyond. Every purchase assists another. Very admirable when a purchase is made via our Boutique. Daisy's Angels motivates and inspires others to lead a positive Faith based life.
You must have missed the sign on the restaurant door that we do not issue separate guest checks and why. Also, the same along with an explanation is printed on our lunch and dinner menus.
Obviously you knew that I was the owner, at any moment you could have asked to speak with me. I would have gladly come to your table of 4 to elaborate further on our policy and/or answered any of your concerns. If the server was rude, wish her behavior would have been brought to my attention at that particular moment, so that I may have addressed her bluntness.
Please feel free to patronize the other nice restaurants in our beautiful area. Fabulous idea!

Wonderful fun place. Went 3 times in the week we spent at the resort. Excellent chef, Joshua McMinn. Young, nice & fun. Also went a 4th time for Apple Carmel Pecan pie, a secret recipe, the best ever. We had steak, fish, salad's, stuffed baked potatoes & appetizers & have never had better food. Older, rustic & quaint with clothes & accessories for sale. Going again next year & hopefully will have the same experience. They didn't do separate checks but very minor detail.

The food was cold and boring. Not a lot of flavor. My Trout was overcooked and dried out.

The restaurant was clean.

It took a very long time to get our food.

There were eight in our party and the waitress refused to give us separate checks.

We ate at Pond's Lodge the day before and it was a lot better. I recommend you keep driving 5 -10 more minutes and get a great meal from people that are a lot more fun.
