We stopped for lunch and grabbed a couple of Burgers. While they were good -well very good burgers I think the price point was a bit off for the off season. Would we go back again - yes so that is what is important.

Sooo I am not the best reference if you are a carnivore. But: if you are a vegetarian looking for a yummy veggie burger, this is the place for you. They will make any of their burgers using vegetarian patties, and have gluten free bread...More

Good food, but not fast food. Great outside seating. Burgers are great. Grilled cheese flavorless. Salads are the healthiest items on the menu.
