We visited on a busy Friday night, staff were exceptional, nothing was a problem, polite and friendly even when they were run off their feet. Food good, huge serving sizes. Appreciated their flexibility deconstructing the nachos on the kids menu for our daughter.

We enjoyed a meal here before going to the cinema. The service was friendly. We appreciated a table near the open heater on a cold evening. The menu was very diverse and offered something for everyone including GF. There is a bar at one end...More
