There was no indication on the menu that the dish I ordered was made with cream; but when it was served, it was swimming in cream - something I can't eat. The wait staff was lovely.

We eat often at this cafeteria style restaurant and always make one stop on our visit to the area.The food is fresh and delicious.
The serving routine can be confusing to a first time visitor. Avoid the noon hour when the tour bus crowd arrives. In the summer season, the serving staff can be a bit annoying (sometimes rude) when requesting a change, even if the change is for omitting an item that may cause an allergic reaction. Omitting an item in a sandwich or salad doesn't lessen the bill, but adding an extra piece of bread will cost extra. They nickle and dime you, so take time to read the menu.
The prices continue to creep up and it's expensive, but probably compares to others in this touristy town.

Cafeteria style, expensive, average food. I wouldn't go back. It was just OK. I had a salad with chicken, cucumbers, cheese and it was $$$$.

I came for dinner in a group of 19. Servers very personable but it took 90 minutes to produce our entrees even though the place was half empty. The restaurant does very little to help its wait staff be efficient. Though the very sunny patio is a long way from the kitchen, there isn't as much as a bin for dirty dishes or a box of flatware, never mind a coffee station. Everything has to be carried to and from the kitchen. Without trays!

Similar delays occurred with coffee and desserts. Our server apologized at the end of the evening and said the kitchen was working with a new menu.

Two recommendations for the management: Practise your new dishes before offering them to customers, and invest in the equipment your patio needs to be a convenient, efficient place to serve customers.

The non-descript front almost fooled us into not believing this was the restaurant we were searching for after reading TA reviews. Wow were we wrong! Fantastic food, surprisingly large restaurant with a gorgeous patio out back! The service was great (Laura) and the atmosphere was lively!
