Our server was very attentive and efficient. The kids got burgers and I had the broiled whitefish. Everything came out quickly and no one left disappointed.

Breakfast is breakfast. It's hard to screw that up. Decent portions, but overpriced for what it is. Sausage links were overcooked, like they had been reheated from the day before. NOTE: If you plan on using a credit card, they charge a $3.99 fee over...More
