Unfortunately, the Knotty Pine is no longer in business. The charming building, complete with fixtures is for sale if you're interested! Try the Woodstock Cafe, nearby on Main Street in Vermilion. It's fantastic!

We loved this restaurant. Unique food, friendly service, right downtown, but it closed last summer! Building and equipment are for sale. Would be nice to see a good, unique restaurant move in there and stay!

I had the Bacon sprout sandwhich and sweet potatoe frys. To die for. The price was great and seem to be a very happy crowd. Everyone seemed to know each other.
