The place is friendly and is a fun place to visit and eat good food. We really enjoyed the patio where we could eat and talk. The view of the suspension bridge at night is great, with the cables lit up in colors.

I wasn't very impressed with the service or the food. The food was all deep fried and greasy. Everything tasted the same. My grandkids had an opportunity to taste alligator which was interesting. Maybe it was an off day. I may someday go back and...More
