Liked the outdoors, horse farm, some games you can play. Unique spot. Otherwise nothing special, service lacking, not very accomodating.

This place is great. Whenever I am in the mood for a burger this is my first choice. Homemade fries are awesome. Great atmosphere and very laid back. Cold beer too.
