Everything was delicious. Several of our party had the duck and others had the diver scallops. Side dishes and sauces were flavorful. Dessert was the spectacular bananas foster. I highly recommend for a nice dinner out.

Brought hubby & two teenagers here after a day of fishing the valley. Every detail was tended, despite our informal attire. Beef Wellington, Frenched Chicken— we were all amazed at this culinary gem high in the Sierra. Can’t wait to find a reason to return

After a fantastic walk around the lake we thought of stopping for lunch at this well-recommended restaurant. On arrival at 1330, the occupier got up, locked the door and then sat down, ignoring us completely. Arrogant, ignorant and rude - not a mammoth welcome 😠.
