“We love sitting on Leff's patio in the spring and summer. Kids and adults alike love their patio games. Their wings are fantastic. (I never was a fan of wings until I had theirs.) And the ballpark pretzel is one of our go-to's whenever we visit. The Big Ass Pretzel is fun to get once but it's huge (and breadier) but give it a try if you have a group to share it with. Their Burgers and nachos are also great. Across from Hart Park, there's always something going on there.”

“Camp has a great vibe. The lodge decor is homey and it's very spacious. The prices aren't as cheap as Walters but they make a good old fashioned too. And, if you are in town to see a game, they have a handy shuttle so leave the car and ride with them.”
