Response from PINKIE_9 | Reviewed this property |
No, they do not have a separate menu for children. You can go on their website and view a sample menu. They try to use seasonal ingredients, so the menu changes almost daily. The soups and pizza are great.
Wondering if you will be open on Thanksgiving.
