This restaurant was great. Fast service and food was good. It's a cute sports bar and restaurant. Lots of families there. The restaurant was packed and we were in and out in 45 minutes. We both had fish and chips and it was delicious. I recommend this restaurant and would go again.

I don't know where to begin. The sandwich was overpriced & was made with regular sliced bread. The filling was dry & over salted. The pasta arrived cold with no flavour, chewy pasta & tasted like it was fresh outta the can. The fish & chips was just okay. Service was unprofessional & terrible. No one came by my table... More
