It was across from our hotel and easy to walk to. Big variety of food and eat in or out. Reminded me of a 50's drive in without the car hops.

Ice cream was ok but not $5.00 ok! I could understand if it was a sundae with multiple toppings but this was a kiddie in a waffle cone with no toppings. I'm a local, if you feel like screwing the out of staters I guess...More
