Whispering Canyon Cafe

Overlooking the expansive, log-structured lobby, Whispering Canyon Cafe offers a family-style, all-you-can-eat feast in an American West motif.

"We hope to achieve a homelike feeling with old-fashioned cooking served family-style," said Jill Schneller, restaurant manager. "It's almost as if this is a way station where traders and barterers gather to share stories and enjoy a hearty meal."

Here, a pit-master chef divulges recipes from generations past as he serves up breakfast, lunch and dinner dishes from a cast-iron skillet.

"We are using natural cooking techniques -- smoking, grilling and barbecuing -- which are consistent with the time period the lodge reflects," said Chef Alphonoso Walker. "We hope our guests will feel as though they are dining in another era."

Aromas of breakfast meats, home fries and scrambled eggs welcome hungry pioneers to breakfast. As high noon approaches, you can choose our family-style skillet lunch or pick from our full a la carte menu featuring hot and cold sandwiches, salads and a full-choice dessert board.

Suppertime features an all-you-can-eat sampling of apple-roasted chicken, pulled pork, pork sausage, jumbo smoked turkey leg, smoked pork ribs and beef brisket, served with salads, vegetables and home-made breads.

Join in the fun and ride a hobby horse in the 'pony express', just don't ask for the ketchup!
