After seeing the amazing reviews for this place we decided to stop off for an evening meal. The food was okay but nothing special and the presentation wasn't very exciting. Dog-friendly and nice view but overall overpriced for what it was.

Sorry you feel things aren’t the same. Ribs are from the same supplier and cooked by the same head chef, on the same plates and at the same price. We do half and full racks so I suspect you may have been looking at a...More

We sure do and we've revamped it for the summer with all new swings and slide, fresh sand and a welcome lick of paint. We've added more and new shaded seating areas for parents to keep an eye on their children too.
