Great selection on the menu and great to see a kids menu that doesn't just have chicken nuggets! Family atmosphere and great if you have little people who can play on the playground. Try the Calzone it was pretty delish!!

Went for lunch with a friend after seeing the Facebook photo of a dish and we were not disappointed. Excellent customer service. The curly fries were delicious and the lolly cake cheesecake was amazing.

Half roast chicken was so dry and disappointing I couldn’t eat it!! Was definitely not worth $30!! To top it off the service was average!! Very disappointed in the overall experience and will not be returning!!

We joined a group of friends for a celebration. The food was lovely and the prices excellent. We enjoyed a wide selection of the menu and it was thoroughly enjoyed by us all. The service was excellent too.
