If you want to treat yourself/your family for a special once a year occasion, go here. Outside seating, food ok, ice cream treats great but portions are HUGE! Really? Who eats this much? Divide between three people and you'll get close to an appropriate portion....More

Food is good. Ice cream sundaes are incredible. Wish they will include french fries with their sandwiches and not have to pay separately.
