“The view is beautiful and the restaurant is fabulous! Be prepared for slow service, but do not miss the Barbequed Shrimp. Four of the biggest shrimp I have ever eaten, perfectly cooked in an amazing sauce.”

“Located among the rolling hills of Ste. Genevieve County, Crown Valley Winery offers a large selection of fine wines. It all began with five acres of Chardonel grapes. Now Crown Valley Winery sits on 600 acres with 130 acres of vineyards. We invite you to visit our architectural masterpiece.”

Park
“Hawn State Park is one of the loveliest parks in a system full of lovely parks. Clear, sand-bottomed streams, wild areas ripe with orchids and awe-inspiring views combine to make Hawn a place that Missourians treasure. Geology buffs love Pickle Creek for the number of exposed rock types. Hikers frequent the Whispering Pine Wild Area for its quiet trails with expansive views. Bird watchers flock to the park for its variety of birds. And there are plenty of quiet spaces for people to get away and enjoy the outdoors.”

“If you are hiking Pickle Springs, Hawn State Park or Hickory Canyon, this is a good dining option other than the area's wineries. Live music on the weekends. ”
