This was a decent restaurant for the weary traveler. Nice salad bar, good choice of options, and the server was nice, especially to our young daughter. Looks like the bar is probably pretty decent, but we were there at 5:00 p.m.!

We enjoyed ourselves. Had no expectations.The drinks (Old-Fashioned and Margarita) were strong and good. Really stocked salad bar. Onion soup was good. Server was sweet, friendly (without being fake) and efficient. My husband loved his Walleye.

The prime rib special was excellent, and the cod was good. The salad bar had many choices, and if we had seen it first, it probably would have been all we would have ordered. Our waitress was the granddaughter of the owner and was very...More
