Have had lunch here twice and enjoyed dining here both times. Food and service was very good. The second time the weather was nice enough to sit out on the open deck and fully enjoy the beautiful view. Look forward to dining here in the fall when the leaves are changing color.

Beautiful if you sit outside. Food okay. Dining room okay. If you sit outside, you can't change your mind and come inside. The food is tourist-priced and not awesome.

While this place is nothing fancy, it was just what we were looking for as a stop on our trip through the mountains. Our sandwiches were excellent and we were helped by a very friendly staff. The view is to die for!

I had lunch with a friend recently at this restaurant. I ordered the turkey panini and it was very tasty. The cuke/tomato/onion salad was good, but very small portion.

Four of us went after church on a somewhat cool afternoon- We were hoping to sit on the outside deck with a firsthand view of the mountains, but unfortunately it was a bit cool to dine out there- They gave us a table near the windows and the view was still spectacular! Our food choices ran from the crab cake... More

The view is breathtaking a 180* view of mountains that you can see for hundreds of miles. A view that you will not find anywhere else! Food was great also! Mahi mahi sandwich was best ever had!

The ribeye steaks, scalloped potatoes and asparagus is amazing. I've eaten here several times and not been let down once. A little pricey and kids are welcome just know they don't have a kids menu with a lot of selection. If your kids are picky and like to cut up like mine might want to keep this place a date... More

We arrived for an early lunch and were the first one's seated. Jennifer our waitress, upbeat and friendly. Not sure what took so long, but we waited and waited for our food. She repeated that our food should be out shortly. The view, of course is outstanding, so that helped. The food was good. The Mahi Mahi sandwich tasted very... More

We've been here twice...and we love it! The views are breathtaking (you don't realize it until you actually go inside). The food is excellent too...very nice blend of upscale and straight up delicious food. We've both had seafood during both trips, and it did not disappoint!

It was Valentines, and we wanted to beat the crowd. I called ahead, to make sure they would be open in the afternoon. Certainly, I was told. I also checked on a dish they were out of the last time I was there. We drove from two towns away, and when we arrived, there was a "Closed" sign on the... More
