I stopped in for breakfast while touring the area. I found it to be pretty busy with a lot of locals. I ordered the Chicken Fried Steak and Eggs, very good. I was really happy with the Sausage Gravy, not what I expected but very good! There are lots of TV's and remote speakers so you could listen to the... More

$5 for coffee is way too much. Prices are high, but the food is original and very good. Please drop the prices!

My wife and I went there for dinner. My caribou burger was good, but her chicken lettuce wrap was pretty bad. The black box cab and chardonnay were pretty bad too. Would not go back.

Good food with a few interesting twists. The burgers range from ELK, Buffalo, Caribou and just plain old beef. Pay attention to the appetizers there are a few in there that will surprise you.

Pretty good food. Have all sorts of different meats and a very large menu. Friendly staff and decent food. Very expensive prices for a burger joint so be prepared to drop some bucks.

Deserts are large and filling, always share if you even have room for desert. Service usually is very poor but the food makes up for the service (unless you... More
