Sweet, sweet memories going there with my Poppy Stanger! Even as a kid, I could sit at the bar & get as many "Roy Rogers" I wanted!

Sadly, on January 17th 2014, owner Darvin Johnson passed away. Having cut my gastronomic teeth at the Lazy Doe for many years when I was a child, I will very much miss Darvin and his influence on his own establishment. I hope the restaurant and bar will continue to operate in his honor. I hope Cheri continues as the wonderful... More

We have stopped by the Lazy Doe many times over the years. We used to ride our motorcycles over Kings Hill and this was our stop. Nice ride by the way! Now I seem to only go once a year during Stu's Cruz, a street rod event in late Sept. But the Lazy Doe is always good and in a... More

Having a cabin nearby, this has been my go-to place to eat when "roughing it, as it were" since I was around 5 years old. The burgers and steaks are always delicious. Darvin, the owner, just turned 80 this June and is still going strong. Unfortunately I missed his big birthday bash but heard it was great. Definitely a hole-in-the-wall... More

Years ago, after a day of skiing, friends and I stopped at the Doe for dinner. In my memory, the steak that evening was my lifetime best. i think it was a locally grown cut and cooked to perfection medium rare.

The food was great and the service was better. The owner Darvin still works there and will tell you some great stories about the history of the town there.

My family and I had ate there once before right about a year ago and enjoyed their burgers, although the fries left much to be desired. We stopped in again this December on our way home from Showdown and were told to "get out" because their cook was tired and couldn't handle serving 8 of us. Although there was another... More
