Great place to eat before a gig !

A group of us met @ The Boardwalk Bar & Grill before attending the Paolo Nutini gig at the Marquee . We explained to staff that we wanted to inculde work colleagues who would be late and we were able to order for those so it would be ready for them on arrival . This was no problem to staff... read more

After a 45 minute wait for our table all was forgiven with the wonderful food. The menu is varied and suited everyone. Food is reasonably priced, servers were friendly and efficient. Though the restaurant was very busy we never felt under pressure so enjoyed every part if our feast. Must mention the great cocktails in the main bar, can't recall... More

The steak was served with 2 side dishes of potatoes and mixed vegetables. The food was beautifully presented and full of flavour. The bit that excited me was the vegetables as we had not seen beans corn and carrots for a few weeks. Most meals throught Europe had a green salad as a side dish. I would recommend this restaurant...

I enjoyed every aspect of my meal. From the moment I walked in to the moment I walked out, it was fantastic. I take my hat off to our waiter and chef. Everyone that dined with me enjoyed themselves and their food selections. The restaurant is clean, sophisticated and trendy. The menu is diverse and the food is well prepared.... More

When we mentioned it the staff insisted it was.5 minutes and 3 bites later the wait staff returned and took the steak!... More

We went in for lunch, the bar was not busy. Firstly, another tables food was brought to our table and when we informed the waiter he just grunted and took the food away. They then forgot a side that we ordered and brought it out after we had finished our whole meal. There was no apology and the staff were... More

I am writing this review cause the chicken wings are awesome! Love em! My friends got steak there the last time and they were pretty satisfied too. I regularly go here just for the wings, it's a nice little spot by the river, feels very European. The bar men are always gentlemen too. Keep up the good work Guys.
