So, we didn't know what to expect coming into this place. There were tons of billboards on the road into town (101 south), so we decided to "try the experience." Two of us tried the split pea soup. While the soup was okay, it's really the "additions" that make the soup. I also had to add Tabasco for a little "kick," but then that didn't surprise anyone in our group.
So the portions are OUTRAGEOUSLY LARGE!!! No one in our group could finish their meal, and we had a sailor in our group. Everything was extremely well done and flavorful. My husband had the chicken pot pie. If you like butter, this is the dish for you! Every bit of this oozed butter. The Reuben had cornbeef that you could tell had definitely been brined for a long time.
As for the service, we got there at shift change, so the service was just adequate. We had a hard time getting our servers attention when we wanted the check.
After we ate, we spent quite a bit of time in the "gift store." This is a must see as there are several unusual items. I have to say, the food and the experience was memorable.
