Step back in time at the 50’s Prime Time Café. This table service eatery is perfect for a fun family meal. The theming is moms kitchen from the 1950’s, complete with a black and white TV for your viewing pleasure while you dine. Guests will love the menu filled with comfort foods, just like mom used to make. However, be sure to mind your manners such as no elbows on the table!
