Hotel staff recommended and we were pleasantly surprised. I had a breaded walleye sandwich. The fish had good flavor with light crunchy coating. My husband had ribs and they were also excellent. Ribs fell off of the bone and were very tender. Staff were friendly and provided good service. Will stop again when in the area.

Escaped my nightmare of a hotel in search of a good burger and found it here. Waitress was friendly, and quick. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was nice. A band was setting up as we left; if I didn't have to be somewhere else, I probably would have hung out listened to them. Prices were very reasonable.

The black and blue filet is excellent. The mango martini and the ice cream drinks are great. They also have very good fish frys and ris. Great place to dine. Good service, food and atmosphere. I go there often and have never been disappointed.

Tuesday night special is Beer Batter Chicken. It is ridiculously good. All white meat and flaky coating. The bartender was very nice (I ate at the bar). Staff seemed very accommodating based on what I heard around me. 29 beers on tap but slanted towards Porters and the like. Clean glasses and taps; tasty Deschuetes Lager.

Five 70+ seniors went here for a birthday lunch chosen by the birthday girl! Staff was friendly and efficient! Birthday girl chose the ribs which she seemed to enjoy! I had looked online beforehand and decided on the 8oz. Breaded pork chop with veggies and potato choice! Unfortunately three others stated "that sounds good" and followed! Meals arrived and the...
