Cindy and Dave are kind, friendly, and fun. The location and grounds are beautiful. We came to celebrate a birthday and there were extra efforts to make sure it was memorable. The food was well prepared, although not the most flavorful or satisfying for the price. The cost balanced out, for me, in the environment, open bar/drinks, energy, and experience.

Sara, Thank you for your nice review. Cindy has been working hard on a better and more Flavorful menu. Jumbo shrimp is just one addition and another special appetizer. A Top Cheif is coming to train everyone to make sure we maintain the quality. Cindy and I both enjoyed your group and birthday party. Thanks again, David and Cindy More
