Excellent food, good space, kid friendly staff and their kids menu is something kids do eat. Very big space so we never had a problem to sit down for dinner.

Helen and I ate dinner here twice, it was excellent both times. The staff and friendly and knowledgeable, choices are plentiful and they serve the best chicken wings ever!

We ate dinner, lunch and breakfast during our stay. Each meal was average. For dinner, we shared wings, risotto, crab cakes, and salmon. All were underwhelming. For lunch, the burger, a salad, tuna salad sandwich...blah...just blah. I hate myself for ordering a tuna salad sandwich...More

We've eaten here quite a few times. The food is consistently good but a bit pricey ($15 burgers). When they're busy it gets noisy and the service is somewhat slow but as far as resort fare goes pretty good!
