I tried to go there in April and there was a sign on the door saying closed for the season. But Tripadvisor told me they were open. However my wife has been there and loved it so I'm letting her fill out the ratings.

I have family in the area, so during the season we frequent the shoe at lease once a week, you can't go wrong with anything on the menu here. Leave room for dessert.
