Very good food, but be prepared to pay an arm and a leg for a hamburger and fries, or the breakfast buffet. The staff was friendly and helpful, but maybe stretched a little thin on the weekend we were there. We were in no hurry...More

The fish taco are very good and they come separated out in a build your own soft taco dish which is a nice presentation. The buffalo wings are pretty good as well. Full bar and decent wine menu. Service was good. Not a bad option...More
