This restaurant is very charming, with a warm friendly staff and amazing food! Their seafood chowder, salmon, and pasta were all delicious and they have a great wine selection. This place is a “must-do” while in Franz Josef!

As warm and welcoming, as a traditional English Carriage House. The white walls and exposed rafters are adorned with riding tack, farm tools and other historic artifacts. While the wooden floors, wagon wheel bar stools and open fireplace add to the warmth.
