We ate here on day 5 of our trip, so we were hoping for something beyond fast food. I was impressed with the variety of food on the menu. They offered seafood, steak, chicken, burgers, salads, and the kids' menu had many options as well....More

Stopped here after a long day of sightseeing. The food was good and decent priced for the small quaint area. The service was great. Everyone was attentive and very friendly to tell us what else was in the the area.
