Rustic Log Cabin Restaurant
Due to the severe subzero winter weather here in Southern Illinois, our restaurant has suffered extensive water problems and damage. We regret that it will not be open this year, 2015. You will find other quality restaurants in the area, however.
Our Rustic Log Cabin Restaurant, open Friday through
Sunday, offers a quiet setting, great food, and a spectacular view.
On regular weekends we are open Friday and Saturday from 4 p.m.
to 9 p.m. for dinner, and Saturday and Sunday 6 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.
for breakfast. Best of all - prices are affordable!

Restaurant starts at 6:00 a.m. We offer several great
home-cooked breakfasts, made to order, guaranteed
to stick with you on the trail.

they will be ready when you have finished the next day's Breakfast.
