    Greek salad made vegetarian with a garden burger on top instead of chicken! Yum! And beer! Yum!

    Burger was great. Fries Smallest order I've ever seen, literally 15 fries. Asked the waitress, all she could say "you get endless refills" wouldn't need a refill if you brought enough the first time.

    They don' have honey mustard any more. So no more 'Pelican' Burgers. (We asked our helpful server Mike.) but anything else, from the old menu, if we have the ingredients, we'll make it.
