Me, my wife and a couple of my friends decided to spend a long relxing day at this place (heard it had a good view). I called in and made a reservation. We traveled from San Jose especially just to get into THIS place. We were 5 min. late and had been asked how long do we need to finish our meal, because they have a TIME LIMIT of 1 1/2 hours per each table. That means they expect you to swallow your meal (which is just a regular Carows like + seafood), pay near $300 and free the table.
We turned around drove to the next exit and visited a small, but cosy Fish House place. Sat there until 11pm and paid $200 for four persons (including wine, beer etc...). Left home very happy and forgot about this unpleasant experience.

Just for the note: This is one of those places that got that BS ghost story. Because of that they feel like 3x their prices and treat you like THEY DO YOU A FAVOR FOR LETTING YOU IN THEIR RESTAURANT.
