We love this place. It can get busy so give yourself some time. Love their salads and apps, but they offer a great array. Delicious drinks round out a perfect meal here.

Good experience overall for our party of 7. Pleasant check in, nice waitress, and cool setting. I really enjoy burgers and didn’t find mine to be amazing, but still good. Good place for kids - decent $4 menu options and crayons provided.
