The restaurant is right outside the exit. Get your hand stamped sand you can return full and quenched. We had the chicken appetizer and split the club. The service was good and friendly. This,surely beats the fast food and trying to find a place to sit in the park.

Great patio to enjoy some relaxing time after tackling Universal Studios all day! The food was good. I had chicken chop salad....I gobbled it up. The onion rings were satisfying as well. My boys had hamburgers and fries....Totally good. The dessert menu is what was fun Cotton Candy a mile high and smores for the table... Fun all around!

Stopped by for lunch before entering Universal Studios. Employees were GREAT! Upbeat and very accommodating. Provided us drinks while we waited for a table, and were very attentive. Food was great and large servings(could've shared). Fire pits to roast marshmallows for s'mores was fun for kids as was the tower of cotton candy!

This is a great place to relax and enjoy a good time. We stumbled upon this fabulous place after driving from San Simeon ( restaurant was across the street from where we were staying.) What a pleasant surprise ! The drinks were amazing, food was delicious, but the best part is the friendly and courteous service. Especially the manager Moya.... More

I was expecting a lot more than what we got...Service was not great on a non busy day, For the price, my steak was pretty thin for a rib eye and not cooked the way I liked. Wine served in a plastic wine cup...seriously! The beer my friend ordered was not available. The fork they gave me for my steak... More

Service was good and place was packed people cheering for LA Kings game . The barbecue ribs and steak are phenomenal. Also my friend got brisket and it was pretty lean with amazing jack Daniels BBQ sauce .

We went here for both Breakfast and Dinner! The service was great, the atmosphere was very nice and the staff are friendly! It does become quite busy as it is just outside City Walk but the service is quick and the food is really good and there is a lot of choice on the menu!

My family and I have eaten here a few times, other times my wife and I took off up here for a drink or two late night. Never disappointed! The barbecue ribs (baby back or beef - why be partial?), are phenominal! Had a pork chop dinner that blew my mind... perhaps one of the best I ever had! The... More

I came here one night and they were patting people down for weapons and waving metal detector wands. Inside, the drinks where expensive, servers slow and bartenders expected larger than usual tips. The clientele was shady as well - would not bring the family here as I would were for children's safety. If your older and out for a few... More
