We just stopped in for a drink and were disappointed to find there's no bar but the staff was nice and let us sit for a drink. It's a fine place. Sugar drinks galore. Pleasant staff.

I just had the worst experience ever. Just the facts. For a 6:30 reservation we were called at 6:45. The entire first floor was empty and I’d say that the second floor was 60% full. We ordered our drinks quickly and then food after that....More

The food and staff were fantastic, but the food and drinks were very expensive. Would recommend for a splurge night. Great for all ages.

We always use valet parking when we go to this location, it's pricier than paying to park yourself but quite a bit easier when you have little kids (especially if the weather is bad).

Yes - the food is predictably overpriced - be careful when you order. Skip the expensive soft drinks and you'll save a fortune. All of these "theme" restaurants are more expensive than most places, but it isn't prohibitive... More
