I really enjoyed to go there at night with my friends on Thursday and Friday. All the staff are very friendly. We had a good welcome... I will go again to try the nightclub and concert!!!!

Excellent live band though a little bit loud to have a conversation. Service is good and the place has a nice atmosphere to meet up with friends and have a drink. It also has a restaurant, dancing floor and karaoke on Wednesdays.

Rude service, bad food and drunk patrons that roll out of this basic eatery in the early hours. This establishment is a nuisance to the entire neighborhood and cheerfully sends drunk drivers out on the road.

This place seems to be a bit overrated. If you are looking for a delicious lunch or dinner you should look for it elsewhere. However, in nightime this place comes to life with live music and dance. So for a late snack and a few drinks this is a good choice.

Classic locals pub; fine for a drink and pub grub - nothing exceptional. I was surprised how empty / quiet the pub was for a Friday night - Expected a big night out; left before 9pm :-(

Big Willy's is the kind of restaurant bar you feel where you feel at home within the first 10mins you get there. Food is WAY better now. Music is the perfect timing..from a live band at beginning of the night to a bunch of Djs for the evening. A place to discover. One of these places you can't pass by... More
