“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

It was a bit lick Hobson's Choice as everywhere else seemed to be closed but the meal was very good and nicely served. Good value for money and would recommend it to you all.

“Great lunch menu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

My husband and I had lunch here and they have a good choice with some $10 meals as well. The food was tasty and we liked that we could choose salads or hot vegetables from the self service area which was in cabinets to have with our meals.
A good place to relax and enjoy some good food without it costing too much. We would eat there again.

“Well, I'll be fished....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

Wife and I each had seafood platter, I had soup entree. Wife's fish grilled, mine battered. Soup was awesome, creamy broccoli. However the main......also awesome. Couldn't eat it all. Thoroughly enjoyable. Some ZZtop LaGrange and some Jimi Hendrix Hey Joe on the juke box, a lovely cold beer and friendly service, all added up to an extremely pleasant visit to the Royal Oak.
