Not a bad place for a snack or lunch. It's very much a TGI Fridays quality but the staff was great. It makes up for the lack of amazing food.More

Pgalido - Thank you for the shout out - on both platforms! We look to finish out the year as Zimzala, with some fresh F&B coming in 2017. Stay tuned, as I am confident we are going to rock the downtown area!

Had lunch on the patio while waiting for my room to be ready. The fish tacos were great and the pretzel bites with the beer infused cheese were really good too. Went back for breakfast and the breakfast burrito was awesome and large.
