It was raining so we had to eat indoors, but the outdoor seating area looked great. Food, service, atmosphere (indoor) were all very nice. This place is right next door to the Visitors Center and the little park, so very handy for visitors.

Went here for dinner and enjoyed sitting outside on the porch. The menu has a little something for all tastes. Upscale for the area. The chicken quesadilla was one of the best I've ever had. The drink specials were creative and delicious.
