This is a typical retail big box tourist captive sit down casual restaurant. The portions are ample and prices are slightly above average. I had the crab cake sandwhich, and it was fair. The fries were quite good though.

The food is ok here, nothing too exciting. The portions are large, moderately priced, drinks a bit pricey. My friends burger and salmon were over cooked. Our waitress was very nice and brought the food out quickly. I'd eat here again.

We had appetizers and drinks. The steak bruschetta was phenomenal as was the salad. The drinks are on the more expensive side ($9 for a draft beer I believe and $12 for a mojito). Staff was excellent.
