The food here was just ok. We had to eat in the bar area as the restaurant was full and we didn’t book. We found the bar area a bit grubby unfortunately and didn’t enjoy eating in it. The food wasn’t bad but I don’t...More

Went for dinner with a group. Great friendly and fast service by the waitresses. Meals were enjoyable but would be better if they shaved a couple dollars off. Was not short on people tho and i guess the service makes up for the price as...More

Agreed with some people’s comments. The seating is nothing exceptional but the staff were helpful and the service quick. The food was of a good quality and that’s all you can ask for. Nothing outstanding but fully satisfactory. A good place to eat.

There's nothing fancy about the dining area but I would recommend eating here. We hadn't booked so didn't get a table right away but it didn't take long, about 15 minutes as advised by the staff. We only had one course each, steak Diane for...More
