Lots of available seating in multiple areas of the Hall provide ample space for visitors, while the food options cover just about every ethnicity and palate. Wasn’t too busy on a weeknight, but wasn’t dead either. We enjoyed a table In the middle of the Hall that allowed us ample people watching opportunities. Will be back for sure!” - Review by Shopping Bag
