The food is fantastic! Huge portions and reasonable prices. I was surprised how good their linguine alfredo pasta was. The wait can be a little long but who is in a hurry in the middle of wilderness...relax and have a drink:)

Excellent value for wonderful food. Opt for the seafood, particularly the seafood pasta with lobster. Even non-seafood items are very good as well (e.g. chicken parm). Large portions and great value. Friendly service.
