We were really impressed by kids pizza lunch cruise on Wednesdays. The food is amazing and even with pizza and salad, chef knocks it out of the park. Bloody Mary's are the best.

We don't usually have bus groups go on the Sun Brunch. It was our mistake not to board you early so your group could go through the line at your leisure without feeling rushed or like there wouldn't be food left. Next time a bus...More

I'm just wondering when you offer your tours? I note October seems to be the common month, no doubt to capture the Fall colours, but wondered if you offer any in the month of March as well? Thank you
