The food here is very very good, and the staff is Excellent! You have to stop here when they are open. You won't go away hungry. The fact that they can keep this going in the winter time is a testament to the foregoing. The owners are very nice, and the accomadtions are as pleasent as you can get, if you like the outdoors (which we do).

If you are even thinking about this place, you need to give it a try!

We spent 3 days in Bridgeport during a multi week drive trip. Had dinner here. Portions are BIG. Still a family owned and operated restaurant and cabins. In fact, the whole family was working during dinner. Casual and relaxing.

Our food was served without a hiccup. Correct temps which is a real indicator that chef is watching details. Nothing fancy but great food with a family pride clearly on display.

Worth the short drive from Bridgeport!

I rarely rate a restaurant with five out of five, but this place is worth it. We stopped for lunch and there were only two other guests. The service was outstanding. The menu has lots of choices and our food was very fresh and tasty. We will be back!

Four of us ate at this place two nights out of three in Bridgeport. The first night, it was not busy, and the service, and food were great. We all chose Italian food from the menu, with two getting gorgonzola sauce on pasta, one eggplant parmigiana, and one pomodoro pasta with chicken breast. All were quite good, combined with friendly and attentive service. We liked it enough that we came back two nights later. Had we not returned we would have given it a 4 instead of a three.
The second visit was less favorable, partly due to it being rather crowded, Service suffered -- our waitress was actually great, but just too busy. And the food was nowhere near as good. One of us got the prime rib (that night's special), and asked for medium rare. It was tasty and had a nice au jus sauce, but it was closer to well done, no pink meat to be seen. The scampi over pasta that was its side dish was tasty and well spiced. One person got the pomodora again. The pasta and sauce was good as before, but most of the chicken breast was tough and inedible. Very unfortunate since it was ordered based on the quality of the same dish two nights before. Two of us were eating light, and ordered side salads and appetizers. The salad was great, good selection of dressings, and a generous size for the price. Both appetizers were very disappointing. I got the crab cakes, which were so salty as to make them inedible. I took a few bites, and there was a lot of the "cake" but very little crab evident --the waitress asked why I didn't eat them, and was kind enough to remove them from the bill. The second appetizer was a gorgonzola sauce with roasted garlic. It came but they must have had a garlic shortage, because there was only a tiny bit, not living up t expectations.

Overall, I'd say the place is a good one, but I would avoid it it it looks crowded. It may have been the lateness of the season and the crowd was unexpected, but that doesn't excuse the reduction in food quality.

We went here for dinner as we were staying at a motel down the street in Bridgeport and wanted something more than just bar food. This place is quaint and old school but pretty good! Most of the entrees are 3 course meals - soup or salad, entree, dessert (ice cream) - so you get a lot of food! Most entrees are Italian pasta dishes and there are lots of vegetarian options. We would definitely come back if we were ever in the area again!
