I had preconceived notions of me hopping a fence in the middle of the rain with kleenex box shoes, but I was pleasantly surprised. Every preconceived notion I had was blown out of the water. The food is amazing, the staff is amazing, the weather’s been amazing, so that’s been a big factor in my recovery. This place has exceeded expectation of mine. This would definitely be a place that I would refer others to.
