After a long, crappy day riding rides, we found this place. The food was really great. There was lots of items that everyone liked in the menu and the drinks were cold. I would eat here again

This restaurant is a favorite when I have out of town guests. The food is consistently very good and service is always quality. The menu is a bit pricey
