This Saddle Mountain has the best food in Blue River. The staff are friendly. The prices though, are definitely on the high side.

We had the Vertical burger with poutine and their house salad. Both were good (not great). Patio has some shade in the evening - pleasant casual atmosphere. Service was quick and unremarkable. Solid choice if you're driving through.
