Good food, big portions

I found this place after searching for restaurants on Google Maps. The menu was intriguing, so my friend and I decided to give it a shot. We got there around 7:30 pm and the place was packed but we got a table with almost no wait. The menu is huge and definitely takes a while to go through. Even... read more

We were recommended to another restaurant in the area, but there was near an hour wait...this was our second choice! This is a local place that serves mostly casual meals. The onion soup was hot and flavorful. My chicken quesadillas were very good and stuffed full of meat and veggies...too much for 1 person. Hubby loved his fish n chips...crispy... More

Service was excellent, but thick deep fried chicken strips on a large crusty bun were at best awkward to eat. have found food not hot a time or two. The place is very clean and the atmosphere pleasantly subdued for the most part.

We were taken there by family. Pleasant if indifferent service. My meal was a little too ambitious for the place (a kind of German take on bangers and mash), and the beer selection was pathetic for a 21st-century bar. My wife's fish was excellent. The table wasn't clean. I only finished the dessert (allegedly coconut-cream pie) because I didn't want... More

Everything on the menu is good. The burgers may be the best in Truro too...top three for sure! Service is almost always great too...even for large groups.

I went there for lunch. Nothing fancy. The food is basic, tasty, with good portions at a reasonable price. You can't go wrong.

This is a great spot to get a tasty and reasonably priced lunch. I have yet to get a meal I didn't like. I don't know who the chef is, but whoever it is, they really know what they're doing! I've been there several times for lunch, as well as a few times for supper, and have never been disappointed.... More
