The best prime rib that we have ever had.Soups are excellent and the breads are just wonderful.While the salad bar is ordinary in its selection,everything is fresh and well stocked. We have never seen the desert menu since the portions are so generous. Our summer place is forty minutes away but we consider it worth the drive for the best dining experience around. And it is super casual.

This restaurant was recommended by our innkeeper. If I split the experience into two categories - service and food - it's a tie. Service was adequate - we got our food and almost all of the beers that were ordered.
The food was adequate as well. The salad bar is pretty nice. Soups were home made, salad toppings were varied, and the breads were nice. Add this to a round of cheese and crackers and the meal started off well. The prime rib was from a roast as promised. It was medium rare and not over seasoned. My mate's sirloin was a bit overdone - medium well when medium rare was ordered. Still, it was flavorful. Baked potatoes were of the batch baked variety. Our batch was probably baked in Wednesday.
Overall, a good stop for the hungry traveler. Enjoy the food, stay cool if service is slow, and enjoy the area - it's worth the trip.
Prices were in appropriate for what was delivered. Wine and beer seemed to be $4.00 and a

A large restaurant yet with a cozy-feeling beamed dining room. The prime ribs are outstanding as are the steaks and chops. But its laurels are not based on meat alone. The menu also includes chicken as well as fish dishes expertly prepared such as salmon and local trout. The large salad bar is excellent as is the soup accompaniment which changes daily.

There is a warm, convivial bar where the visitor can have dinner, watch the ball game and chat with the locals. We met a man who manages a bridge re-construction project on route 17. The current job is 30 miles from Roscoe but he stays here with his crew because of the restaurant.

In summary, an inviting place with very good food. Don't be turned off by the large, barn like exterior- good food and comfort await within.
