“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

I stayed in the Accent Inn and received a discount voucher for the Abc restaurant. I asked for a glass of wine and fish and chips the first night. They didn't have the wine I asked for and the fish and chips was greasy (I put the fish on a napkin and the napkin almost became translucent). The second night I asked for the same kind of wine and they didn't have it (it was on the menu) and then gave up and ordered a takeout burger. The burger was pretty good but not worth the extraordinary price. I quit going after that.

The wait staff wasn't apologetic and when I mentioned that the fish was greasy, they didn't seem to care.

My advice - don't worry about the discount from the hotel - go someplace else.

“Good stuff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

Nothing too special here but it got the job done for a good price. The service wasn't great but it wasn't terrible either. It's a good place to go if you have kids with you but not if you're without. Food was good. Some of the meals have quite large portions.

“OK, typically family restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2012

OK decor, your typical lower priced family restaurant, similar to a Denny's, Ricky's, Smitty's. A step down from a Whitespot.

“Great services.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2012

Made sure they told us the specials of the day & I very much love being told right away without having to ask for specials, she took our drinks right away & had them ready for us before we put in a food order =) Thank you for the great services!
