Ordered my usual ribs as takeaway which was lovely, however my crab dip had a funny taste. It was like it was on the verge of turning. I chucked it because I didn't want to get sick. Disappointing as their crab dip (well at Jimmy...More

Food is fantastic - I recommend to share because the portions are quite big! We had ribs, wings and rings - together with the local beer a really nice dinner for two!

A rack of ribs was my choice, and you certainly get a plate full. Absolutely delicious. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Don't miss out on a meal at this Gem of a restaurant.

Steak and burgers are both very good. Service was great even though they were very busy! Outdoor tables are very pleasant in the evening.

Sold itself on ribs. Was very prehistoric, especially for the kids. Not very good communication between staff. Chicken wings underprepared.

The ribs are the highlight here, the sides are your typical fries, but nothing special. The beer selection is good, the atmosphere is very casual. Portions were very generous, but service was average.

We stopped here the other night and very were disappointed. The steak sandwich my boyfriend order came out with raw bits. The cook was very uneven; ranging from medium to raw. When I brought my concerns to our server, they were dismissed. I mentioned how...More
