We remembered having a good meal here during the summer when we stopped here overnight and decided to return. Although the service was very friendly unfortunately the food was overcooked and the meals not very nice.

We visited the Ship in a large group for dinner a Saturday night recently and thoroughly enjoyed it. Great reasonably priced menu choice and meals served promptly. The kids could run around and play outside as well. The waffles for dessert were a hit.
