Response from Leland M | Reviewed this property |
I'd recommend it. Can be quite busy during popular dining hours. It's well worth the effort.
Do they have an area for large parties ( 20 people) and is it an appropriate place for kids under 8?

Yes I believe so, there was a large party of about 25 people, plus small children when we were there. Hope this helps.
