Good standard fare, friendly staff. I have only always has their sandwiches, burgers etc and always good even with special request. Loud and crowded is the only drawback. Be prepared to wait at dinner time but worth it.

Food is good, casual restaurant. Loud, kids are welcome. Get their early or you'll be waiting on line. Dining room has a bar in it, but family friendly.
