Nice casual place to eat. The night we were there, live music was playing which was toe tapping. The staff we dealt with were great and friendly. We chose the small meals and shared and they were very good. The fries were not good and...More

Myself and my wife could not go past the $5 rump which was quite nice however the add ons such as the chips and pepper sauce were very ordinary. I must say that all the waitresses were well trained and very attentive.
