We ordered a variety of food for breakfast - mine was the "garbage plate" and others stuck to the more traditional plates, one friend ordered the Eggs Benedict. I would call this food average for the most part, the Benedict was obviously packaged hollandaise sauce....More

Food was amazing. We went on a Thursday and ate in the dining room. The wait was only 15 minutes. Staff is great, they handle the crowds effortlessly. We had a pulled pork sandwich and a brisket stuffed baked potato. We left full and satisfied.

Unfortunately we do not have heaters on the patio. If the sun is out it is usually warm enough to eat outside by about 9.
