Service was a bit surly, and the food was pretty bad. The pancakes were truly horrible. We wondered if we had received the gluten free ones by mistake.

It's a great meal -- regardless of what you order -- so expect a crowd. There is something on the menu to please every member of your party. Parking is a hassle but worth it.
