Don’t let the stairs deter you! (Lawn dining in clear, warm weather.) Well priced, central, pleasant licensed restaurant in an old house, with several dishes worth coming back for. Local owners see to your every need without over-hovering. “Everything is made from scratch,” says Sharon Smalley.
We three fussy diners had a great time for $88 plus tip, including 2 appies, 2 desserts, four drinks, and three entrees. Try the stupendous coconut prawns for your next deep-fried delectation (8 points out of 10). The “Chippers” appie is deliciously different (7). Best dish is planked wild salmon with blackberry-orange relish (8).
Come back for Sunday breakfast—the traditional is a mere $2.99 (8), but you’ll be tempted by full menu—the Southwest Bennie gets a resounding 9 points from a picky breakfast eater. Lunch at $5.49 to $10.95 offers a full range of sandwiches.
