Nice place with good options. All dishes are generous portions and you can include a protein in most of them. Try the lemonades, they are great.

Fantastic food. Staff were friendly and had an excellent system to get a table as a walk up. We went twice and didn't have to wait more than 20-30 minutes even though it seemed busy.

revelers scream with delight riding the roller

I would call and ask them to be sure. They know how well they can segregate the kitchen and if you might be at risk for contamination.
