The large burgers that they specialise in were red raw in the middle. Service was poor. We have a policy of not sending food back because we know what can happen when you do. Shame really as the atmosphere was good. Unfortunately, my youngest son ate most of his uncooked burger and spent the rest of the night throwing up.

Nice place but food and service where appalling. 4 times I had to ask for cutlery. When food arrived, my order was forgotten about and the other order( scabby chicken burger ) was stone cold! Never seen a "chicken breast" so thin and small. It is cheap I suppose, you get what you pay for

After 15 days of French and Italian cuisine we needed something different - and this place delivered some cracking steaks. Get around it.

We dived into this bar fairly late on a Tuesday night, the place was very quiet but the owner and locals made us feel very welcome and we had a great night. Beers are reasonably priced and well kept.

The concept of an American West themed bar and restaurant in Pompeii, Italy was intriguing. I have lived the majority of my adult life in the American West, and wondered how this place would compare with the greasy spoons and bars of my misspent youth. My daughter also noted that if we ate there, we could honestly say that we... More

It is different from what you normally find in Italy. if you want something differnent then try it. Still have a lot of pasta dishes. The rib was ok but not like back in the US. But just ok. They did have a larger selection of beer.

Good for a slightly different and not-so-Italian evening, being Western Saloon themed. Big portions of American food - the burgers are huge. A good range of beers and they even serve cider. We were on a flying early-evening visit so didn't stay long and there was a private party in so I'm not sure how the atmosphere usually is.

We rocked up knowing little Italian, and managed to have a lovely night at the bar trying our best at conversation with a happy and welcoming barmaid and her friends who looked after us and recommended drinks from the beer list. It was a bit of a shock to discover some were very effective at 10%! Great atmosphere, very tasty... More
