I can’t believe that they require diners to park across and use THEIR own shuttle for a fee. Then we find out that the wait is for an hour and a half for two people...which means you’ll probably end up paying for parking as well....More

This restaurant needs to get some lessons on how to be nice and friendly to customers. The hostesses were extremely rude and I feel that they could have been more friendly. However, the food and the view made up for it in some respects. The...More

We had breakfast here every day. It was casual, great taste, and great service. Put your name in as soon as you arrive as there are no reservations and usually a wait, but it’s worth it!
