If you are a fan of the movie, it is a must see, as it is so authentic to how it looked in the move. That being said the food is incredible! I have been to 5 star restaurants that didn't serve as good of...More

Closed for business when we were there. The empty space is right near the bus depot, around the corner from the tourist info center. Maybe it has reopened, but didn't look like it. I would check before you go.

It's not fine dining but it's a cool place to have lunch. It's usually not overly busy and the wait time isn't too bad. The food is pretty good.

Service people were not friendly and not much of a menu. Eating outside was too hot and the chairs and tables were all filled inside when we came in. Was so close to the trolley and would have been nice to dine there.

This is the overpriced, not-very-good food you often find at attractions. My son's hot dog was overcooked and the bun was stiff and stale. The grilled cheese wasn't grilled. One slice of bread was toasted and crispy, the other slice was just a cold piece...More
