We ate here once on a Thursday night. Seated immediately, but there was a table of 5 teenagers that were obviously friends of the two teenage staff that were working. That table had all the attention. Finally, one of the girls at that table flagged a waitress and clued her in that we had not been waited on. She was apologetic and we ordered. Food was outstanding! We did find out it was only her 3rd day waitressing and she really outdid herself trying to make up for the lack of service when we got there. Meanwhile, the two teenage boys cleaned a table at a snails pace, discussing how they wished there was a tv on the restaurant. I would go back for the food alone, but the training of the servers needs work.

We were passing through on vacation a few weeks ago and took the chance to stop there for lunch. The portions were huge (re: grilled steak quesadilla), some so large that I felt like I took on a "food challenge" (man won). The service was great as was the food and everyone was very friendly. We made a point to stop there for lunch again the next day. I would highly recommedn this restaurant to anyone.

Really good chicken salad, it was fresh, and tasty. The service was fast and friendly. We will stop by again some time.

I got a trout dinner to go while staying at the Elk Horn Lodge. The girl who got my order was so friendly and some of the staff came out to meet my dogs while I waited outside for my dinner. Food was very good!

Nice outside dining area, friendly environment inside, good food. I would definitely eat there again. Stay away from the key lime pie. They need a new recipe
