The burgers were juicy and delicous, you could tell they were not a frozen pattie, and the wings were huge and had a great sauce called lonley pony which our server... More

I took my daughter there for lunch on a whim because it looked fun! The food was terrible! I mean everything not just one or two items. It was either undercooked, overcooked, or over seasoned. When I say over seasoned I mean that a pizza should not literally be dripping with Alfredo sauce to the point where you can't even... More

And the cute added little bonus of the soda souvenir cup you can take with you - a great little touch. Always look forward to at least one meal at the... More

I recently participated in the Santa Hustle at Cedar Point. This restaurant/bar was the location for the after party and awards presentation. Even though there were a lot of people they seemed prepared. The food and drinks kept coming and everyone had a great time. If they can keep things moving with this loud and rowdy crowd I can only...

We visited after a day at cedar point Halloweekends. There were a lot of Cedar Point employees, it was a very busy place, but it was a fun atmosphere. Gotta buy the leg cup!

This place is a staple of our visits to Cedar Point. Good food and beer. Service can be very slow when busy, do not be in a hurry.
