We ate breakfast here and it was so good, we came back for dinner! Everyone was very friendly. We had breakfast on the patio and ended up eating dinner at the Pub Down Under because the wait was shorter. Both experiences were fantastic.

We went to Burger Night II at the Pub Down Under. Very casual, relaxed setting, delicious burgers, good beer selection, great wait-staff, and good prices. What more could you ask for?
