Good value for the price. Never had a bad dish here. The servce however is very inconsistent. Sometimes we have great service, other times service is slow, and we feel we are an INCONVENIENCE for the wait staff.

The food was ample and the taste was delicious. The staff was friendly and service was fairly quick. I tried the shrimp basket and liked it very much.

Do you let dogs eat at outdoor dining. You guys are far enough away that I don't like to leave my dog Bob that long. Thank you. Brenda

With 300 + people I don't see it as a safe environment for pets. There is a massive parking lot though, does the dog need to sit with you? I guess if you got a table on the outside of pavilion it would be OK.
