There is an nice view and you have the choice to sit inside or outside. The service is excellent and the staff is very friendly and accommodating. Plenty of parking, including motorcycles and the only drawback is you can only eat so much.

You have to order first then sit down, which we aren’t really used to, but it is well worth it. The food is excellent and very reasonably priced. We will definitely visit again!

Bad food, poor selection. Only good thing is view. If you want a good meal go someplace else to eat.
