The sandwich wraps were awesome, fries great, burgers great. Everything was good, no complaints on the food except a little pricey for our large family. Right across from our hotel.

Under new ownership and menu. Great atmosphere and the food was fantastic. Jordan, our server, was friendly, efficient and a lot of fun. Overall a wonderful experience at a very good resturant. I will eat there again.

This was truly a wonderful place to eat. The fish was the best and my husband had alligator tail and it was good too. The place (we ate on the bar side) was quaint and the staff was wonderful.

Ordered the whitefish, it was terrible. Tasted very old. Will not go back! Service was slow, had to wait I will check even though most of the tables were empty.
