Hands down the finest restaurant in/near the park. Lots of choices and the pasta was a crowd favorite for our table.

We loved this upscale eatery!!! Fine dining in a town of 123 permanent residents....unlikely!!! Bison osso bucco, prime rib, salmon...asparagus...horseradish creme..garlic mas...white chocolate raspberry cheesecake!!! Every dish we had was prepared to perfection...no cowboy beans or overdone meat here!!!
