This is the only kiosk you have to take a drink in all the area and that's the only reason why I went there. Nothing special, just the only place in the area to grab a bottle of water. The chairs are not comfortable, and the staff is unfriendly. Beverages over priced.

Great place to sit under the umbrellas and cool down with an iced coffee whilst waiting for mid day and the noon day gun. Lots of staff so quick service even when it's really busy and very nice iced coffee

Great location, excellent staff and friendly service, plenty of staff to serve as well which made them very efficient. Beer was cold which is a plus - many places served it lukewarm but not here - water was also well chilled and very welcome in 40 degree heat!
