    Please review this site's menu -- usable?

    Hi everyone,

    Could you take a look at this site and tell me what you think of the menu. I recently adjusted their menu to improve visibility and have better compatibility across devices. It's an overlay-style menu -- you click it, then a translucent overlay pops up. Works on desktop and mobile screens. The page itself is a one-page layout style.

    1. Do you feel comfortable using the menu? Are you confused at all?
    2. Do you think average joes will be able to use the menu and navigate the site without problems?

    If you find issues, could you also let me know what browser you're using.

    Any other comments would be appreciated.

    I think it might be better if you made it onMouseover instead of onClick - I put my mouse on it and expected something to happen.
    I'd also set the background opacity to 0.80

    Thanks. I'll have to keep that in mind. The site is in a bit of flux, structure-wise, and so our menu may change by the end.

    Just some things I noticed:

    People tend to have fat fingers. I suggest spacing your links apart further and making them slightly more buttonesque in design. The "return to top" link wasn't entirely visible for me either. Otherwise seems to work pretty well.

    I'd put the rest of the sections of the page in the menu...at least the more important ones (About, Contact, etc.) I didn't even notice the page scrolled at first and this might trigger my attention.

    That's about all I can think of. I'm also sick and tired right now.
    If I've helped you out in any way, please pay it forward. My wife and I are walking for Autism Speaks. Please donate, and thanks.

    If someone helped you out, be sure to "Like" their post and/or help them in kind. The "Like" link is on the bottom right of each post, beside the "Share" link.

    Agreed, also keeping the overlays controls consistent( ie. 'menu' has the close action at the top, price list at the bottom), just for some unity of design.

    Also if I go to menu, click on an item, the price list is no longer clickable. Hitting the back button at this point starts firing an error of :
    ReferenceError: $f is not defined
    And that seems to go until.. well it loops and I backed out at 131 times.
