  • Low key private owned place. How wonderful the owner is. Sweet, informative and thoughtful presentation. This kind of place is for me instead of the big fancy over commercial spots. It has character and a genuine sense of America ! Thank you.
  • I went here in 2nd grade and I’m going again on the 23 but I loved this place and have so many great memories
  • My family went to this wonderful restaurant, after visiting The Butterfly Sanctuary. We had never been there. The staff was friendly, and caring. The owner came to our table, to say hello. The food was served in an attractive manner, and was delicious. We enjoyed our meals! What a lovely experience! We will definitely return.
  • This place is so sweet. I took my neices here for a visit. This was my second time here. The workers are super friendly. The merchandise to be purchased is well made and prices are low. Entry fee but well worth every penny. Opened seasonally for the summer. We had our lunch outside at the picnic benches provided.
  • Love it! Had my son's birthday party there today. Mari was awesome! The kids were entertained the entire time. My son had a blast and the adults did too.
