Best food in the area bar none. I live about 3 hours away and I have made the trip just to eat there. Real true home made food and LOTS of it. Worth the drive. Awesome staff as well. Real diamond in Hill City.

They do have good food, If your disabled or in a wheelchair you will have a hard time getting in. Doing the stairs is difficult, Hard to get in as they have steps to get into the place

Anyone who says this food is average is out of their mind. This is real home cooking with huge portions for the healthy eater, with that wholesome small town atmosphere that just don't quit. Stop there for sure!

Food here is average, but the cinnamon rolls are wonderful. Moderately priced. Restaurant is located in Hill City, MN, on Hwy. 169, about 15 miles south of Grand Rapids. Small restaurant, but food is at least average.
