We were in kind of a hurry and only had a short time to eat. We lucked out and got in with out a wait or reservations. I figured I would just get the burger (it wasn't cheap) and figured for the price, it must be good. Well sure enough it was very tasty and the fries were awesome. If... More

Wonderful ambiance to have a pleasant meal with friends and families. Menu has a nice selection of soups, salads, sandwiches, burgers and entrees. Excellent desserts especially the berry cobbler and the flourless chocolate decadence. Dining room ceiling is incredible! Wait staff is outstanding. And the water....aaaahhhhh!!!

An oldie but a nice night out. Servers look scruffy and food is average but it's the balding and its history you go for. Lunch outside better value. Less crowded than Camp Curry!
