With both restaurants in the same building, all 12 of us could choose what we were hungry for at the end of a busy day at the Homestead. We are on picnic tables provided outside because the weather was perfect!

Food is good, but the place is so very dirty. The floors, tables and staff were all dirty. There were only two groups in the DQ and they messed up the other group's order despite not being busy.
