Food and Dining

3 out of 5
Great but few veggie/vegan options. They don't even mention veggie burgers are in fact available. You have to pre-order such things, feeling like an outcast.

Very working class oriented, with slightly overweight lead performers (who really should know better), and such 'delights' as a 'hairy chest contest'. Eugh.

Service and Staff

3 out of 5
One waiter tried to con us - we ordered a drink clearly labeled as $7.95 but when the check arrived it was $15.95 so we sent the drink back, but he still charged it to our account, despite assurances from the Manager otherwise. Beware.

Pros: The Serenity Deck, Hot Tubs
