The food is good, not outstanding, and reasonably priced. The restaurant has take-out service on just about everything they serve. This is pretty handy if-like us-you want to dine in your hotel room.

I ended up having to apologize to my family the rest of the way to SF and all night. The food was not good by any stretch of the imagination- YUCK!!! We ended up with...shall we... More

We arrived after an apparent siege of customers and even though exhausted, the waitress was friendly and gracious. Our food was way above average. The prices were very good. There's a gift shop to the left as you enter that has some very cool items.

We had dinner here while in town. It was really good and a nice change from the usual chains. The portion sizes were generous and the fried ice cream was delicious.
