There are many places to eat in town. I'd put this one well down your list. The food is truly awful. The kitchen staff, no doubt armed with tin openers, scissors for the packets and a bank of microwave ovens to nuke the pre prepared food. The restaurant isn't too clean or well kept either. Frankly, it's past it's best. Nice staff though. It's not cheap either.

This place is pretty grundgy. Though the staff and owner/manager(?) have always been very nice and efficient, the food is so average I never leave feeling satisfied.

Food was just OK. However, they gave as a free dish, it was very kid friendly and it was a very nice atmosphere. Quick walk to the main areas and if you eat there you have free parking and the place could get pretty busy.
Patio is beautiful.

We were here in late August and couldn't have asked for a better experience. Kind of hot in the outside seating area, but great ambiance...a real party! Food was excellent, service grand, and waitstaff were all great! Menu is full of great offerings, from seafood to sandwiches.

A great place for a business lunch or take the kids! the patio is a great place to eat and watch the trains go by. If you don't like outside seating, they have a great dining room inside and you can see the trains throught the windows. Or you can sit in the cozy little room with a fireplace! My husband and I love the Ahi salad and the pesto pasta, have been going there for years, always good food and service!
