Had lunch here and it was great. The Mai Thais are awesome as well. We were a little early and arrived before the restaurant however there’s a small shop and art gallery up the stairs where we could look around.

My son and I stopped in after ATVs and had a burger and pork sandwich. Things were flavorful but the coleslaw seemed like it had been sitting around for awhile and food quality was just average. I'd give it 3.5 stars, but have to choose...More
