Friendly staff attended to us in the huge, probably somewhat realistic, logging camp dining room. We came for breakfast, but it sounds like the dinner is pretty good too. Might try that next time. Definitely recommend.

The chicken does not come from the free range chicken on the fence. We are an all you can eat restaurant. We would have to have a chicken farm to feed everyone. Sorry to hear that your food was ok, maybe tell us a little...More

Eat like a lumberjack in this logging camp kitchen. Although the facility is not rustic, the location is. You sit on benches and eat family style on a tin plate and drink from a tin cup. Rolls, Coke slaw, baked beans and Mac & cheese...More
