The restaurant itself is dim, and larger groups of diners can be a bit boisterous, but the atmosphere is generally quite nice. There's a bar if you wish to start with a drink, or you can ask to be seated right away in the dining area.

Service here varies -- some of the waiters and waitresses are better than others. It really depends on who you get and how busy the place is. I'm happy to say that we've never had a RUDE waiter or waitress -- the only bad service has been the kind where your drink refills take a long time rather than bad attitudes among the staff. I don't think they mind being flagged down and asked for things.

We've been a few times and all of their food is delicious, warm, and hearty. Out of maybe 7 visits, I've only had one bad meal and I'm guessing that the normal cook was sick that night or something -- because it really was THAT bad. My fish was mushy, my roasted potatoes were overcooked/burned, and my green beans were undercooked. I'm sure that if I sent it back, they would have given me a new meal, but I regret to say that I didn't. If it happens again, I will and I'm sure they'll be perfectly nice about it. The staff seems genuinely friendly.

The other 6 visits, my food and everyone else's was amazing. Their recipes are offbeat, so don't go in expecting your meatloaf to taste like normal meatloaf. It has a different set of spices than normal. Likewise, your BLT is actually a BL(A)T -- bacon, lettuce, avocado, and tomato. I LOVE avocado and enjoyed this, though I didn't like the fried egg on top as much as my sister-in-law did (I gave her mine, it worked out fine).

My favorite dish is the Walleye. It's also one of the most expensive, but it's a large piece of fish lightly breaded with slivers of walnut on top. It comes with roasted potatoes and fresh green beans. The roasted potatoes made me come to love roasted potatoes -- they have been perfect all but that one time, and I will definitely keep ordering the dish when we go back.

If you prefer a more calorie-laden meal, the fish sandwich is equally delicious. It comes with tartar sauce and is as large as the fish on the Walleye dish (my brother got one where the fish was twice as wide as the bread it was on).

If you want even MORE calories, I've heard the peanut-butter-and-banana waffle sandwich is all they promise it to be and more.

My husband, who loves both chicken pot pie and biscuits to distraction, orders their chicken pot pie which is topped with a giant biscuit. It's his idea of heaven in a bowl.

You can choose from several different sides. I'm a fruit addict and their fruit bowl is always what's in season, so I generally go for that, but their salad is equally fresh and tasty, and I highly recommend their poppyseed dressing. I didn't even know I LIKED poppyseed dressing until I tried theirs! It's very sweet yet not oversweet. I generally like tomato-based dressings, like Thousand Island, but I think I like their poppyseed even more. (Tip: Check your teeth afterward, as poppyseeds like to stick around.)

If I could give you any advice for your first visit, it would be that their menu probably has some things you'll love and some things you'll hate. Be sure not to judge the entire restaurant on only one visit if your first meal isn't to your taste, because while all their food is offbeat, it's also different enough per dish that most people can find something they really like -- and sometimes in a dish they never expected to enjoy!
