Nice atmosphere. Nice waitress. The bacon wrapped meatloaf and garlic mashed potatoes were tasteless. Very disappointing. The stuffed chicken and vegetables were very tasty. But it's $80 with a couple drinks. So the price/quality ratio isn't worth it. I just didn't trust that the $45...More

I'm very sorry you did not enjoy your experience. We set our equipment to keep our beverages as cold as possible because it is so hot out. One spot in the cooler is slightly colder which may have chilled your bottle a little too much....More

On the plus side, our waitress was very nice, and my youngest son's burger from the kids menu was of a very high standard. My middle son loved the ribs. Also, portion sizes ensure you will not leave here hungry. But my wife's prawn cocktail...More

We made our reservations for 3 on the same day. I made it through Open Table. We were there the week after the Forth of July. If the park is really busy you might have to make it a few days before. I hope that helps.

It is summer time and families are traveling. We visited in June and although it was busy, we were seated quickly. It is best to make reservations during Spring Break and summer.
