Great food, unique style!

Don't be put off by the slightly dingy location, this is a unique restaurant serving fresh and tasty meals. As others have noted, this is literally a mom and pop outfit, with dad in the kitchen, mom serving and the (well-behaved) kids hanging around. We came for brunch and the food was strikingly... read more

My husband and I went there for lunch having read good reviews. To start off we were asked to"sit anywhere" and when we did we were told that the table we had chosen was reserved! We then moved to another table and were given menus. The lady left us to decide and when she returned to take the order...I asked... More

Thank you for review. We don't normally respond to review but feel that this deserves one. You were ask to take a seat anywhere with the obvious exception of tables with reserved signs like any other restaurant. We are a small mom and pop restaurant with one helper is why we only serve brunch on weekends which our faithful locals... More

I had the very opposite experience from what I see in the reviews on this page. I was in for lunch and the only aspect of the other reviews I do agree with is that getting your food takes an extremely long time. But for me, value and quality was awful. I had (homemade they said) chicken strips and salad.... More

Breakfast, lunch or brunch my favourite meals of the day!! Salt Water is the only place to go in town... Best bennies, scotch eggs to die for and everything from scratch, yes please! Lunch items are excellent, tried the bacon burger recently and I'm 100% confident when I say, best I've ever had! Portions are large, service is slow, expect... More

Stopped in for a burger and salad. The burger was excellent! Best I have had in years, the salad was super good with homemade dressing. Be prepared to wait. Food this good takes time! Very casual dining, mom & pop operation, simple atmosphere. I could not finish my burger so I saved the other 1/2 and had it for dinner... More

Without fail, this little restaurant is by far the best value for your money. Everything, I mean everything made from scratch with love and perfection. Standard pricing -- but out of this world food, and tons of it. You really won't want to eat anywhere else and may even find yourself dreaming about your favourite dish. Family owned and operated,...

Eggs Benny really good but extra sauce late after Benny done. A extra charge was added. No problem if arrived with meal. Anyway in general all... More
