The staff is great. Always make you feel at home. I go there often for their great craft beer. Usually just three on tap but always a hard choice which to pick because they are all good. Food has almost always been excellent and the one time it wasn't they made it right. It's my favourite place to go for a casual eve with friends downstairs or a romantic eve for two upstairs.

The food was lovely but the wait was too long, we ordered around 8 and didn't eat til 9.15. There was apparently a larger party upstairs in before us.

I visited for a latish meal, (8.30pm), on a weeknight, with three others. Our greeting was OK, but not welcoming. We chose our table and wanted to order, but there seemed to be a routine we had to endure, even though we were keen to order and get eating. No short cuts allowed.
Our food was OK, nicely cooked and presented but not outstanding. Staff were polite but really just did not take much interest in us or our orders or our experience in the restaurant.
We left about 10.00pm, while there were still other patrons so we were by no means holding up staff departures.
While it was nice, the dining experience was not really nice. Mediocre really.
Styx can do better than this.

Stopped here for a coffee & muffin. They had a $6 deal for the coffee and muffin (or a scone) which we availed ourselves of and enjoyed relaxing by the water. Service was prompt and pleasant.
