Very few restaurants open when we came upon cronies . I had their chicken salad which was fair, husband had the ahi burger, which was quite good. Atmosphere, sports bar, service very good, and bathroom interesting.

Took the recommendation from trip advisor and was not disappointed. Friendly wait staff. Mushroom Swiss burger was well cooked. Loved the fresh baked bun. Onion rings were beer battered and fresh. A good stop if ur hungry.
