Brought the whole clan to this place. Very wholesome given the alcoholic drinks they serve. Quite ideal for kids. Good food. Great souvenir shop.

Moby dicks has very good biscuits and gravy. Large portions. Some times could be a little warmer but still good. Problem was that it was usually crowded and had to wait or come back another time.
