Delicious tomato basil soup and nice house salad with blue cheese dressing. Found this spot by asking an employee of the Aquarium here to eat. Excellent choice. Aquarium staffer recommended the hamburger but I opted for s&s. Friendly efficient staff. Short distance from Aquarium around...More

Cheese on grilled cheese sandwich was cheap, low quality and didn't taste very nice. All food tasted cheap and mass produced. Chips were burned and tasteless. Would not return. Service was good and food arrived quickly.

Great Fried Chicken Sandwich. Excellent crust on the chicken match with their coleslaw is by far the best chicken sandwich I have had. Outstanding and friendly service.
