If you are driving, the restaurant has free parking. However, be aware that it fills up early during peak season and that you must stay on premises while parked in their lot.
During peak season, the huge dining room fills up and there may be a long wait. We recommend arriving prior to 8 am to minimize your wait.
Wintertime visitors should request a table near the gargantuan fireplaces that are at each end of the dining room.
