Recommeded by our hosts at Sheridan on the Lake B & B, it was a very good spot and very convenient. We both had delicious salads the first night, and had their special prime rib the next night. Service by Mary was excellent.

Very good food and a friendly staff; a good selection of meals and easy access just south of Houghton on the main road. You won't be disappointed.
