School House Kitchen in Oldtown

In addition to being a great place to eat, they really care about people!

last month my son and grandson had a frightening experience when they found themselves in the dark, cold, rain in unfamiliar territory and no cell phone coverage! They found the Schoolhouse Kitchen late on a Sunday evening. Larry kept the doors open, loaned them his personal phone to call for family to come pick them and their gear up, then kept the doors open while we drove 2 hours to get there! He also washed and dried their wet clothes while they waited! What an awesome and wonderful experience this turned out to be. I don't even want to think about what the outcome could have been without the Schoolhouse Kitchen and their caring folks! God Bless you all!

Never had an adventure like your son but we always make a point of stopping to eat on our thru rides at School House Kitchen. They are really nice folks.

Good food, prices, and service, with a big side order of country hospitality. Not far off the trail for a taste of local flavor. Say `Hi!' to Katinka for us.
