Visited this restaurant for lunch. The steak sandwich is great. Prepare for healthy, large servings. Do not be put out by full restaurant. They handle crowds well. Will return next visit.

Stopped in here for lunch. Had to wait in line to order, it was worth the wait. They make ordinary food taste amazing. Try it out, you will not be disappointed.

When we were there in March, there wasn't a play area for kids. Just indoor seating and a patio outside in the back for seating as well.
