The burgers are huge & juicy. Best black bean burger I've had in a long time. We ate outside as it was a gorgeous September day. Prices were a bit high, but it's a tourist area. Staff was excellent

I had my wedding reception there in 2003. They offered a great selection of totally wonderful food. The food is delicious and the service was great. The chicken is a must have and the sides are to die for.

We have been going here for over 30 years for the chicken dinners. Over the past two years we have seen some changes. No more cottage cheese. No more jam with the bread. Side dishes are smaller and not as tasty. The chicken is good,...More

Yes, we do! We have a gluten free menu and a vegetarian menu available. You can view them online ahead of time if you like. Then when you arrive, just request the menu from the hostess when you are seated. Thank you!
