Real good fish and fries. Going back next season for sure! Great menu selections. You might just see some very nice antique automobiles. Everyobe that goes there has memories to share with others for years.

Expected better tasting food , at least better for deep fried foods But it was very average and could have been cooked longer Staff was super friendly and nice and it's defined a unique wearing experience with the drive up feature

There aren't any waitresses on roller skates but nonetheless they do deliver food right to your car window. Keep your headlights on or your flashers and they know you want service. Good cheap eats. Decent burger and fries. Not much for ambiance.
