Nice bar good menu. Had shrimp tacos and wife had burger. Good food clean place. The only problem is the restaurant is part of a sports complex and hotel that caters to youth sports teams. Fantastic place for them not so good for date night.More

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. We realize that being attached to a youth sports complex does bring a certain energy to our facility, but we believe it's part of what makes us such a unique stop! We hope you come back...More

Went for breakfast, the only time the waitress came back voluntarily was to see if we needed the check. The only thing she removed from the table was the bill within a 3-4 min of signing the receipt. Dishes from buffet left on table. Drinks...More

Guacamole toast with egg was soggy. Kraft american cheese was used and hash browns were too salty to eat. No one in restaurant to eat overpriced breakfast buffet on SAT AM during busy field hockey tournament!
