Although the Craftsman looks somewhat aged from the outside, the food is very tasty and plentiful. Their specials are worth trying. Just a few minutes south of town but worth the drive

Every year while on vacation, my husband and I always make time for a meal or two at the Craftsman. EVERY dish has been super delicious! Jim, your creativity and flare is so appreciated! We cannot wait for our next trip up north :)

Came here before and did not have a good experience, So we decided to give it a second chance and loved the food/service that was provided! Maybe new cook/management since last time we visited? But whatever it is keep up the great work!

I thought Jim's blue cheese burger was my favourite Craftsman burger - until I tasted the stroganoff burger. It was the 'burger of the week' last time I was in. Six ounces of perfectly-grilled ground beef, cheddar, caramelized onions, a dollop of sour cream, and...More
