Just caught lunch here on a slow, breezy Wednesday afternoon. Came outside the lunch rush, only a few patrons so I can't comment on how they handle crowds. Very casual atmosphere. You order food at the window and waitstaff brings it out to you. Alcoholic...More

I'm sure they do. But you may want to call.
