Check Out What's Here

Families rarely agree where to eat. Come to the Venue with at least five unique options to choose from with menu items for all ages.  Eat from any of the restaurants all at the same table. Then when the kids finish early, send them to Liza’s for a little after meal ice cream or just out into the grassy area to play some corn hole or life size connect 4.

No Work. All Play.

If you are looking for a place to reserve for your special event, consider renting the CoCa-Cola Tent of 1,800 square feet (Monday-Thursday), the Open Air Pergola of 3,000 square feet of covered space plus standing room in a private garden area, or Finny’s Pub for a small gathering.   Or, many of our customers bring their small party and just “find some space and pull some tables together”.  Click on View Events below to learn more.
