We love coming here. It was not busy at all as it was a week day during the off season. Our server was very personable. It was one guest in our party first time and she was very pleased with the flavor.

The staff here was awesome. Real nice people. It's a cool restaurant for Forrest Gump fans. Good was decent. It's worth a go. Likely wouldn't go back even though nothing was bad it would not likely bring me back. Service staff was best part.

I'm sorry I don't know if they allow pets on the patio. I don't think you can have any pets in any restaurant in the US due to Health Dept. Inspection guidelines. I've been to restaurants in Dallas with pet friendly patios... More
