The founders, Bryan and Lee Finison put a high priority on family first with four active children. The Finison’s find themselves regularly at a dance competition, football field, soccer field, baseball field or basketball arena. Regardless of the location whether locally at Sokol Park, Kentuck, high school facilities, or traveling to an AAU basketball tournament, families just like The Finison’s need great local food that kids of all ages can enjoy and agree upon. Families need short wait times, activities before, during and after a meal, and places where group size does not matter. Not only does group size not matter but the duration of the stay must be variable. If a sports team is between games or just hanging around until the next day, the team and parents need a place to hang out. When multiple families hang out, they want to move the tables to put kids together and adults together without asking a server or making a reservation.
Families rarely agree where to eat. Come enjoy any of our five unique restaurants all at the same table. When the kids finish early, send them over to Liza’s for a treat or out into the grassy area to play some corn hole or life size connect 4.
