Everything about this eatery is mediocre. Whenever I perused the menue,I began wondering if menue writers are elegible for Pulitzers or at least Coldecot childrens fiction awards. The impression you get from this menue is that this is the best food you will never forget....More

We arrived towards the end of the day but nevertheless we were still in time for some absolutely scrumptious pumpkin pie. Being from the UK- this was something I hadn't tasted before and I really enjoyed. Good service and great window seat views.

We truly enjoyed our meal here this time. Their burgers are just excellent as are the fries but they are also huge. So we split one and were given a second plate for no charge and that was nice. Believe me we have excellent appetites...More

There wasn't any music when we were there. People are engaged in speaking about the museums they've seen. We were at lunch. Outside might be better.
