This is my favorite restaurant to go to meet with friends, have consistently excellent food, drink and conversation. I especially love it in the summer when we can sit out on the lawn and dine. It's like home, only better because someone else cooks and brings the food out. I love the wait staff; they are professional and friendly in a home town way. Five stars to them. I'm so glad they've survived the pandemic!

Everything was perfect 🤩 Our server was super friendly, and we enjoyed every single bite, we even got lemon blueberry cheesecake to go since we were so full. Josh and his staff are always a pleasure to be around.

It was the best food I’ve had in a long time. The ambiance was nice but there was no lighting above our table. The service was top rate and the food was brought to the table steaming hot! It’s a bit pricey but each plate has enough food for two to split if you desired. I give them 5 stars.

This is my favorite restaurant in Gaylord, outstanding food and service. The only complaint is the lack of people coming in not wearing masks , I'm not from the area but noticed this is common practice in this part of the state. I guess the people "up north" don't believe in science.
