We’ve received a lot of questions about inside dining and have had a lot of discussions about it internally, so we wanted to update you now that we have a plan for the summer.
Unfortunately, we won’t be providing table service in the dining room this season. As most of you are aware, we have kept our doors closed to the public since the pandemic began because the drive-thru/takeout window was the best way for us to operate efficiently and keep our staff and guests safe. It also provided enough space to allow us to serve as a resource during our toilet paper drive, food drive, and toy drive during the pandemic during a time when the community needed it.
These days, everything is looking up and we are excited about the season! However, with the structural changes and nationwide hiring shortages, it will be impossible for us to provide traditional table service in the dining room like we used to this season.
On the positive front, we are able to offer a number of great breakfast items through the drive-thru and takeout window, including our new breakfast bowls, burritos, homemade corned beef hash, sandwiches, honey dip french toast, mimosas/bloody marys and much more!

We look forward to opening the inside seating later this summer so guests can sit inside and enjoy their meals — cafeteria style. As always, guests are welcome to bring their meals to any of the 60+ picnic tables on our property, including the food truck park area.
We know this is not what most of you were hoping to hear and we are sorry about that. However, we’ve received a lot of great feedback on our Drive-Thru/Quick Serve Menu, so we hope you will give it a shot sometime if you haven’t already.
When visiting us this season, please keep in mind that we have three takeout windows open at any given time and are always looking for new ways to make that ever more efficient. Often guests have found it is quicker to walk up to the takeout window than sit in the drive-thru queue. Either way, we are training a lot of staff and are continuing to work hard to be as efficient as possible, while ensuring accuracy and quality at all times.

Thank you all for your patience and understanding. We look forward to seeing you again soon!
