“Mixed bag”
Reviewed 24 March 2017 via mobile

The night started well with a very bubbly staff member taking my order and delivering my drink. Unfortunately the Seafood Chowder was bland and lacked seasoning. The Southern Style Chicken Burger was good though, the wait staff were slow to take away previous plates, even though the restaurant wasn't busy. Might try this place again.

“Fantastic food, brilliant service, need I say more ”
Reviewed 15 March 2017 via mobile

Fantastic food, brilliant service, need I say more. It's so cool when you return to a place that you've not visited in a while and it's even better then you remember. Such a friendly atmosphere, fun and comfortable, massive Tv's and awesome decor well thought out. Fabulous menus something for everyone. Outside seating plenty of room. Out orders were filled quickly with lots of smiles and laughter. The bacon was just beautiful and it was crispy not burnt just the way I asked for it. LOVE THIS PLACE, highly recommended and I most certainly will be back.

Great value for money. Had the fish sliders and they were delicious! The complimentary donut deal also went down a treat!
