On a blustery January Saturday night we ventured to this 1950's throwback for some nostalgia having vacationed as a child on Glen Lake. As the dining room wasn't too busy we had some one on one time with the interesting owner and chef Nancy who...More

View is very nice. The place is old, but is clean. Part of the charm, I guess. Ambience? Saturday night - 1 other table occupied - was this an omen? Probably. My duck was very good. The wild rice was stuck together and kind of...More

This 107 y/o classic structure could provide a warm, wonderful B&B experience. It could, but it didn't. My wife's meat had more fat than flesh and my entree was so undercooked, it needed to be sent back to make it edible. The salad bar was...More

Our party of 4 came in and had drinks, the tastey appetizer platter, followed by an excellent dinner. Luckily we weren't short on time, as we were on vacation. We were there for over 2 hours, but we did enjoy ourselves thoroughly! We plan to...More

We chose the place off of the reviews saying it had a great view, which was nice, but that was the only nice part of our visit. The service was HORRIBLE! I've never had a waitress with such little care for the costumer. It's one...More
