“Not the best choice for evening meal”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2012

Went to Zookeepers on a Monday night as not much else open. For what we paid it was not very good. I would think would be great breakfast place.

“Food good, service interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2012

While we adults found the non-communicative waiter a little unfriendly, our teens thought he was great, and after seeing him slide down the bannisters holding a tray of empty crockery, have attempted to emulate him (without the tray) at every opportunity. Having said that, the food and coffee were good and served promptly, and that's the main thing, isn't it?
