“Dated, but Acceptable Local Place”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

A local, family kinda place that's seen its day. The entrance could be inviting, but the lawn area is overgrown with weeds. Inside, there has been little change in 20 years since it was the Cannonball Kitchen. An attempt has been made to make a resaurant-sports bar; however a box projection TV is still in place as well as small tube TVs hanging from the walls . When the waitress asked how our food (nacho platter) was and we explained it was unacceptable, she took away a nearly full plate, but later charged us for the full price (it was adjusted on request, but a visit from the manager or a "sorry 'bout that" would have been nice). I suspect that the many menu items are not homemade (canned processed cheese on the nachos) or made on site and, from my experience guess that many ingredients come from a can or box . We have had acceptable lunch items here ( sandwiches mostly, probably made there) . Worth a try, but don't have great expectations. Lots of potential especially considering this is a resort area, but not unique.
