We enjoyed our time here but the soups were horrible. I ordered the potato soup & my friend ordered the chicken soup & they were both inedible. The nachos would have been much better if they had zapped them in the microwave to at least...More

The food was nice and hot and we didn't have to wait long. The deck outside was nice, but hot.... No shade except for table umbrellas. It was fun to watch boats come and go, up and down the slough.
