While politics and bush work changed, the restaurant continued going strong. Most restaurant goers purchased meal tickets or paid a flat all-you-can eat rate. Menus boasted that it was “Owned and Operated by the Boarders Themselves” and that there was “Plenty to Eat,” “Everything the Best,” and “Clean and Wholesome.” They also reminded patrons to “Please leave used Serviettes on the table.” In the 1960s, the cost of dinner eaten at the communal tables was $1. Undated menus from the era show a range of items for those sitting at individual tables, both Finnish (mojakka and beverage for $1.30 and clabbered milk or viili for 45¢) and North American (t-bone steak including beverage, bread, soup, and dessert for $5, and pancakes and coffee for $1.10).
