We just ate after a long day in the park. The food was outstanding. Our server, Thunder, was very professional and attentive. Our table ordered buffalo burgers, salmon, Thai lime fish and multiple desserts. We loved it all!

Great food! Our wired was Thunder, he was very funny and made the time enjoyable. I get the Bacalao Au Gratin and it's fantastic. The desert is also very good. This place is good for date nights and I have also seen kids there.
