Waiter was switched mid service, both waiter and new waitress were rude. We spent a lot of money and were happy to spend more but decided to save our money for another place due to the service experienced. This is the second time in a row I've been to happy camper and received poor service, never had this issue previously.

Happy Camper started out great! The food was awesome, the server even brought us a "free" shot. They have a 2 hour limit with co-vid, understandable, but towards the end they were a little pushy about getting us out. We weren't lingering but the server took a LONG time to come get our tickets and split it up (we were given a pen to mark the ticket and split it up ourselves) and then tried to charge us for a couple drinks we surely did NOT order. The tip is automatically included so I am not sure if he was trying to get more tip from us because he thought we were too drunk to notice the extra drinks (2 drinks and food...) or if it was an accident but he quickly removed it and got us out. somewhat rudely, since we had been 15 minutes over.

Overall fine given the conditions. Saw a rat run across. Could’ve increased heat. Ended up buying a blanket to survive.

Love Happy Camper! Our visit was expected to be outside and in 30 degrees, however we were also expecting a heater at least. Some friends in my group were a little grumpy about that, partly because they didn't dress super warm. HC, please install heaters especially your southern outdoor tables!

As always, the food and drinks were amazing. The ambiance is just what you need for something fun and the service couldn’t be better. Happy Camper is a gem and I’d recommend it to anyone who lives here or visits from out of town. There’s a little something for everyone.
