Great spot to have a drink or a bite. There are two outside patios. You can sit in the sun and relax. The zipline course is really close so you can hang out there while the kids are zipping.

Stopped in here for an appetizer and drinks after a session at the neighboring Aerial Adventure/Zipline park. Quick service and awesome food for a reasonable price. There was a nice deck overlooking the marsh.
