Casual and low key, great food and service! Mom ordered the Million dollar salad, which only cost $11 and was loaded with wonderful toppings. I had a BLT, substitute Ham for bacon on Rye bread with cole slaw. Ate the whole thing!

We are in the area every summer and we always love to stop by Boondocks. My son will not visit unless we eat the Bison Burger. The food is excellent here and so is the customer service. I highly recommend eating here.

I had the best trout and my husband had the prime rib. The place to go if you find yourself in Island Park. No credit cards. Cash or checks. Worth the effort to have cash!
