My wife surprised me for my birthday and took me here. The food was wonderful!!! Afterwards we walked around to the different shops they have there on site along with looking at the beautiful lights they had on display. Highly recommend this place to anyone.

I used to go to this restaurant with great regularity while in college and the years after in the 1990s. We went again for the holidays and I am happy to report that it still feels the same and the food was equally as delicious.

It is available upon request. And if not, you can buy the mix in the gift shop. I’m sure the ingredients are listed on the package.
