We discovered this gem by accident - it was late at night during a trip through a more remote part of Oregon and we were hungry, but a bit wary of what looked like a bar from the outside. Inside was a large, woodsy restaurant with friendly and helpful servers, and we cautiously asked the hostess of this ranching/farming community establishment (which are not always big fans of the gluten-free traveler) if they had gluten-free pizza crust? Wonders of wonders - they had the best gluten free pizza we've had from a restaurant. Not that it's artisan level, but compared to the cardboard from restaurants we're used to, it was yummy, chewy and almost yeasty. I fully expected my insides to tell me it was actually a gluten-filled crust, but it happily it did not.
We came back the next morning for breakfast, ordering just eggs and bacon, when our server informed us they had gluten-free pancakes. Oh happy day! They were very good pancakes and we only wish this friendly restaurant was in our home town. From the decor to the food to the servers, it was a great home town diner experience. Highly recommend!
(Our 12" pizzas cost $13 and $16, and our bacon, egg and pancake breakfast cost $11 each).

Friendly staff. Very reasonable. The huckleberry pancakes were great. Also had sausage and eggs and of course, coffee.

This place was through the parking lot of the hotel we stayed at. Breakfast, lunch and dinner. It has a gift shop and a bar. It also has an ice cream counter! I stopped in early and got coffee to go. We ate dinner there last night and had a great steak. It came with fresh grilled vegetables that were delicious. Big menu with lots of choices. Will definitely stop again when in the area.

We were just traveling through so selected this place mostly because it was right on the main highway through town. We ordered Pizza's as this seemed to be their specialty. I have the "meat lovers" in their "personal" size. It was plenty of food, and decent quality.

The chef's love of food shows in everything we've ordered. Been here 3 times and it is always good. Friendly staff, casual Oregon at its finest. Stop in for a bite.
