We came for the "Dinner for Two" offered on Tues., Wed., and Thurs. It's a wonderful deal. Our food was good and very generous, and our server couldn't have been any nicer.

Hi Janice, I have been there just once for New Year's Eve and it is casual dress and no dancing. I don't know how is it in Summer High Season but more or less it will be the same but with more people. I hope to help you.
