This food is wonderful. We had the chowder soup, the chili, a spinach salad and a patty melt. The wait staff, Alfredo & Blanca, were all you could ask for, well-trained and friendly. We had traveled from Las Vegas, going toward Idaho Falls, on US 93, the highway from hell. It is beautiful, but a dangerous zombie-apocalypse of insane deer... More

It was hard to decide what to eat. There are many wonderful choices and friendly, knowledgeable staff. I highly recommend this restaurant. Thus far have tried some of the food which was not a disappointment, the presentation of the food makes this place even more appealing. Also I highly recommend the Bloody Mary. Yum!

We ate several meals here during our two day stay. They really have good food. They give you a good size portion. Everything is cooked so fresh and I love their food. I ordered a Monte Cristo, a sandwich that several restaurants make but do them wrong. A Monte must be dipped in batter and deep fried. That is how... More

I had biscuits and gravy with bacon and my wife had a hamburger and fries. Good food but not great. Pretty average.

We love the food here. Never had a bad meal. We asked the server to split our meal and he did with no problem. Very friendly, helpful staff. Highly recommend.

Worst dinner we have had in years! I had an open faced roast beef sandwich and my wife had the Monte Christo. Her sandwich, definitely out of a box! And deep fried. You don't deep fry a Monte Christo you just lightly fry it in a skillet. They drowned it in oil. The roast beef was out of a dried... More

Service was somewhat slow, but the food was ok. I took the shuttle service from Barton's Club 93. Can't even remember what I ordered, so this was not a highlight of my road trip. It is a casino dining room....

After a long night of gambling and partaking in adult beverages, this place was good to get a bite to eat. Chicken fried steak rocked!
