Went to this place on 1/17/2020. Host staff are a bunch of twits...seriously. There was a wait and we had no problem waiting for a table. We found an open place to sit outside ordered wine and a cheese board. We were happy, the cheese board was awesome. The hostess came out as soon as the food and wines were delivered to seat us, ok that was quick...neither she nor anyone else tried to help us carry our plates, the cheese board, the glasses of wine, our waters, our napkins and our cutlery to the new table. We somehow managed with the help of a bus boy who happened to be walking by. When we sat down at the new table the hostess tells us we have to vacate the table at 7:00 PM because it was reserved! There was no error she took us to that table knowing we would have to vacate in 45 min. It was laughable it was so ridiculous. We each order pizzas which tasted like bread with ketchup on it ( probably one of the worst pizzas I have ever had) and a side salad (which was delicious). Super disappointing experience to say the least. The best thing about this place was the outdoor scenery and the lively vibe.

Fun place the bartenders and servers are very good. One complaint the only thing that is good on the menu is pizza the rest of the food is mediocre at best. If they would tick it up a few notches they would own the area

We’re a family of 5, kids ages 9, 5 and 3.5. We loved this place. We’re on a quest to go through 50 states before our kids don’t find us cool anymore, #chaudhry50
This place is beautiful! The views are beautiful and what I LOVE is a fairly large patch of grass where kids can just be kids. My boys ran, played duck duck goose while they waited for their food. This is an iPad free trip so it was perfect that they worked up an appetite before lunch. Because the grass patch is fenced off, we were not worried about golf carts running them over.
Husband and I had salads and they were really good. FYI on the grilled cheese, they use sourdough so my kids didn’t like them. I would have inhaled those sandwiches
Great ambiance, service was very friendly. 100% check this place out.

Had lunch there and we were not impressed. Food quality was average, service was just okay. We were anticipating more, but the restaurant must be busier for dinner than lunch. We'll try it again soon.

The worst kale salad I have ever eaten in my life. A mount of kale and basically nothing else. We thought they were feeding a cow.

We had to ask someone to come to our table after 25 minutes waiting. We had to ask for a menu dessert and again ask for someone to come to the table and take the dessert order. The waitress was chatting with her friends.
