Had dinner at Famous Dave's on our weekend getaway. The staff was friendly and great food at a decent price. Enjoy watching the marina with all the boays and people. Short walk from the park.

We enjoyed our service and the food when we visited this location. It was the only place that we found that had sweet tea (we are southerners). We ended up stopping in several times during our week long stay.
