We stop in here for lunch after church on Sundays. The service has always been good and the food too. They are also hosting different contest like "Best swings on the shore" and other events too. The decorations everywhere inside are neat too. Family friendly

Food and service very good, over priced in many menu items, good place to have a drink and relax, but a little spendy for a family on a vacation with a budget
