So I stopped here just as the bird flu was kicking in. My fever was skyrocketing and I could barely swallow, so this review and any comments regarding flavor are probably completely skewed.
We were definitely the only paying customers in the joint under the age of 63. I saw a couple that appeared to be on their anniversary toasting their water glasses.
The decor is some sort of mid-60's swiss mountain lodge? Maybe? It ruled.
The split pea soup was awesome. It was all you can eat, I had a bowl and a half. If I wasn't about to pass out face first into my bowl I probably would have slurped down three. You can order sides for like an extra 2 bucks so I ponied up. It was chopped ham, bacon, onions and croûtons. I used ham and onions. Good stuff. I can't believe I remember all this.
Our waiter was great and you pay up front, which I'm always a fan of in road trip situations.
I really wish I could post photos w/this review. We got some great ones.
