I'm always a little leery of restaurants in high traffic areas being tourist traps, but this place was fantastic! Great service, fantastic food and reasonably priced. Very large menu selection and the kids really appreciated the smiley fries as well.

This is a sit-down restaurant. I believe that one of the dishes served was a dish that included a couple of tacos, refried beans etc., but it is not a take -out place.

We walked upstairs and waited to be seated upstairs. They asked us if we wanted inside or outside - It was beautiful outside - great view.
