“Not a good experience”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

Visited during the summer and they had no way of turning down their mister which kept us cool but damp. Food is pedestrian and not very good. Just a fast food tourist trap.

“OK...nothing special”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

We ate here on vacation and had the salad with strawberries, apples, and grilled chicken (my husband had the grilled shrimp on his). It was a good salad, but nothing very special. The waiter was good about making sure our beverages were refilled, but service for the food was extremly slow for a salad Most of the prices were overpriced for the amount of food that we saw being served. Probably won't go here again.

Reviewed November 16, 2012

Large dinning room, very little wait time to be seated. A bit noisy. All meals are moderately priced.

“Good atmosphere, okay food”
Reviewed November 15, 2012

Enjoyed the friendly staff and forrest gump trivia. The kids liked getting their meals in a paper boat. The food itself was just okay, nothing special.
