Stopped for an apple pie a la mode. They have a large menu if needed. Gift shop. The pie was nothing special and the place had an order to it. Prices were up there for a tourist town.

This restaurant is a "three and a half". The atmosphere is great. Little gift shop, old fashion decor. The food was good, the service a bit slow. Good place for lunch or dinner.

Food was not that good. Ranch is horrible. We got our appetizer after our meal. Waitress was friendly but hard to catch her attention, place was busy, dont know why when the food is not so good.

Like a step back in time - small gift shop - we liked the pot pie and the pickles and onion rings. Prices a bit high.

We just stopped to pick up a pie to take home. The place is so packed and the wait was long. The pie isn't too sweet which is good and the fruit flavor is perfect.

I would give this place negative stars if I could. Horrible food and even worse service, I've never experienced anything like it. We arrived around 7pm on a Monday and it wasn't crowded, there were about 4 other tables besides us but the older male...More
