Helpful welcoming staff. Good drinks variety. Food tasty and menu varied. We ate here two nights in a row as it was convenient and good. Upstairs one night and downstairs in the more family style area the other night. Value quite reasonable.

Had the crab cakes, which were supposed to be their signature food, but wasn't impressed. They also tried to give us the "bum's rush" after we were finished with our dinner....couldn't WAIT for us to leave!
