We enjoyed our meal. Nice tables near river. Clean lawn area. Tuna melt was great. Not a fan of chips with the powder seasoning. Didn’t have the shakes but they looked good. Staff very friendly.

It must have been an off day based on all the other reviews on here plus several “face to face” reviews. Service was very slow and one had to almost shout at the waitress and wave your coffee cup in the air to get refills....More
