“OK for a casual evening out”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

The food is good, not great, and is presented well. Too bad the meal arrives when you're still eating your entrée, like they want to get rid of you as quickly as possible. You need to get drinks from the bar, which is a nuisance on a busy night as you can spend quite some time waiting there while your companion sits at the table alone.

“Suitable for small or larger groups”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

Has smaller areas for smaller numbers, and a larger area for families. Is a little out of the shopping area so not so convenient for people without a car. Broad range of food. Good quality.

“Great place for kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

This place is great for kids and has a great atmosphere. Only complaint is the food is fairly expensive. One has to go to the counter and order their meals so its a lot like pub service, yet the prices are more like fancy restaurant prices. A bit of table service would be nice for the amount you pay.

“ordinary”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

Plenty of food on the plate but very average. Better off going to the Glengarry pub where the food is brilliant.
