Great customer services, not so great food.

This place has the bones to be great – no, awesome! However, the quality of the food here is letting the all the other elements down. It seems the chef is resting on his laurels a little here and only a few changes could make huge improvements! Just to be clear, the food is distinctly average. I... read more

You can't go too far wrong with American diner style food can you? This place used to be superb and a great place to fill your boots with ribs, burgers and grills. However, the quality of the food just doesn't really cut it anymore. We had ribs, burgers and pulled pork and it was all.....OK. As far as I'm concerned,... More

This diner was recommended to my friend and I after training at a gym nearby. When we arrived, the manager made us feel extremely welcome and quickly allocated a waiter to our table. The manager sold this place for me. Ensuring that each diner was always seen to, she flittered around like it was her first day on the job.... More

I went with my daughter and friends for her birthday. We are all adults. Service: The comment from my companions, who are mid 20's was that we were not the stars of the show, we were the background extras in the film. I agree totally with this. The social life of the staff and their friends took priority. We booked... More

We thought we would give this place a go and booked in advance for a family of 6 including our 1 year old son. Initially our hopes were high as we had heard good things. For starters we had some garlic bread and I tried the chicken wing chilli challenge. It was pretty hot and the wings were a good... More
