We always eat here. Great food and service. The kids loved the park and always want to go back. Lots of fun with the grand babies.

My coconut shrimp and sweet and sour sauce were awesome! You could really taste the coconut and the shrimp were large and juicy! The regular shrimp were also a good size and were fried to perfection.

The food was good but not for the price. I had salmon and added a shrimp skewer. The salmon was good. The Cajun shrimp didn't have much flavor. The jasmine rice was hard and pretty much just a ball of white rice. It came with...More

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

I'm sorry that I am not aware or know of a definitive answer, but I think it would probably be closed that night. However, I would suggest calling the restaurant directly before making any plans in advance.
