We just miss the opening by a couple of days, but in all honesty I don't like the look of the food anyway.

I like the look of the breakfast menu.

Will be interesting to see reviews when it opens.

we don't mind going to restaurants in I Drive, especially Southern end, and if it goes on restaurant.com like the Las Vegas one, it will be good value.

We adore going to I-drive!
This is where we used to stay when I was younger and my dad stopped driving as much in the US so we always like to visit when we go for memories sake,
I have found there to be some really great restaurants around I-drive and this place looks like it will have our sort of food

I also don't think the prices seem that high but then that's probably because we eat mainly onsite and also pay that for most our meals over here also lol, in fact we was just at Coast to Coast for DH bday today and my ribs meal was £17.99 so I don't think paying that in the US is all that bad!!

Haha I agree! Don't think the prices are that bad and my husband would probably also like to try a Man V Food challenge!


We really like I Drive too, just wondering out of interest, why do some of you hate it so much and avoid it the way you do?

The traffic on the crossroads of I-Drive and Sand Lake Rd is a killer. The southern end of I-Drive isn't too bad but the north end is horrible.

But, having stayed on both I-Drive and LBV I found the traffic nearly as bad when trying to get through the traffic lights on Hotel Plaza BLVD at LBV, especially at night.

Its all down to experiences people have had their. In our early visits we would drive up get stuck in traffic, see English pubs, football shirts etc. All we saw was a an English tourist trap. We just feel happier in LBV, traffic can be bad here at times but never experience it like Idrive thankfully.
All I can compare it to is like visiting 2 resorts in the UK, I hate Blackpool but enjoy visiting Scarborough or Bridlington, all busy places but you just feel at home in certain places.

Ah right, so mainly traffic that's the issue! Saturday nights.... nightmare!

Yep that's true, you find your place and tend to stick to it. Must admit, it does feel very English touristy even now IMO. We still like it but for the past few years, we've stayed at HRH so tended to stick with CityWalk and now we have dvc, we seem to go to CrossRoads more and Outback at Vineland!


Thanks for your replies
