“"We found this place while visiting family and needing a little down time! What a great place! The staff was very friendly and professional. The tables were not crowded close to each other and there were tables on the balcony. The food we ordered was delicious! If you like potato salad order it here! It is delicious! Moderately priced but just right for what you get."”

Route
“"We went here the last few times we've been to Dayton. Its a beautiful hiking trail. Relatively easy at first then the trail gets narrower and becomes more of a climb but worth it when you get to Laurel Falls. We had to wade in the creek to get there though. The bridge went out a couple years back and they don't plan on replacing it (talked to some park rangers about it.). We thought about taking the longer trail and going to Snow Falls as well but we were pretty much beat by the time we got to Laurel Falls."”
