We had a delightful dinner sitting in the open courtyard here. Service was good. We had the elk short ribs which were good but the BBQ sauce served with it was a little over powering. Overall, best dinner we had in Marathon and Alpine.

Great advice...book your reservation online. It makes being seated an easy process. The outside patio seating is beautiful and the hostess and waitress do their job well. The food is pricey. A cheeseburger with fries is about 17 dollars. Each topping is another $2. My...More

I had an open table reservation for 5 pm and since the town was having a music festival I guess they had special hours of operation. I wasn't allowed to sit at a table until 5 even though I got there a few minutes early....More
