2013 James Beard Award for Best Chef Midwest, Colby Garrelts and staff create classic Midwestern fare with his wife, Megan, a James Beard Semifinalist for Outstanding Pastry Chef. Whether you order the spicy crispy chicken sandwich, fried chicken with creamy mashed potatoes or Buffalo wings, there's plenty of tender, juicy chicken on the menu. Customers also applaud the deviled eggs and pulled pork sandwich, cooked beef short ribs and the double patty burger with house made pickles and fries. Baked Potato Soup gets high marks for its layered flavors too. Megan and her staff create must-do desserts, from strawberry rhubarb pie to Blackberry Honey Cake. Sit amid rustic décor, or on the patio overlooking a beautiful lake, while interacting with friendly servers and bartenders. Although some customers find rye KC pricey, many think food quality makes up for it.
