Nice place with a live band but they need to make it more attractive by giving happy hours like nearby pubs. Its good for a once a week visit. Staff is very friendly though.

Out of bravado, I and a few friends took on their 1Kg challenge. After an hour and a half my medium to well done steak arrived. It was rare in the centre, with blood running out onto the serving plate. The steak itself was very fatty and not at all nice. Considering it costs 25BD one would expect better. The... More

I went there with friends at around 3pm and it was pretty quiet, by 4pm it was full. Mixed crowd of people, very good service and the Guinness was not bad either!!

After being denied entry in JJ's came here. Very cosy place, comfortable. The band was average. Starters were good.

I ordered the pork ribs and when they served it, it smelled funny. The ribs were burned and the barbecue sauce was just basted on top of the burnt ribs. With it smelling like garbage I can tell that the meat was definitely not fresh. Our companion ordered the Montecristo sandwich and it tasted like it was cooked in old... More

Took some lads here and had a ball, 1kg steak and huge burgers amongst the many menu choices, nice service and live music in the bar. A good choice if you want simple American fare and a few beers. A bucket of 5 buds is 10BHD.

Very upset. I paid 10BD between service charges and Tea refills. I asked the waitress do you Get this tip , she replied no the company gets it. I said this says Service charge, so I assumed you were tipped. She said no sir this is not ours. This is down right customer deception. I have her an additional tip... More

Tried their pork ribs over lunch on a lazy Fri afternoon - love the way the meat smoothly and wholly comes off the bone! Beer-battered fish n chips: fresh hammour, yes, but my Asian taste-buds crave for more spice! Tastes great, lovely laid back ambience n good service-couldnt have asked for a better way to spend Friday afternoon with wife... More

Starters were good but ribs were tough and under cooked, must have had a duff one when you look at the previous reviews, to be fair the waitress did offer a replacement but couldn't wait that long. Not cheap but others in our party had good steaks.
