“Happy hour menu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012 via mobile

I'm back here again for the Nth time and this review is based on their bar happy hour menu.

The happy hour prices are favorable given the quality of food. For example a mahi taco is $3, calamari is $6 and a grilled pizza will set you back $8.

Favorites:

Calamari - what I like about it is that it's the larger pieces on a good sized plate

Pizza - had this a few times and it is grilled to perfection and likely the largest item on the happy hour menu

Stuffed mushrooms - a bit small but full of flavor

Ahi - you get four pieces, not filing but very fresh

Buffalo egg rolls - very thick and rich if you are into chicken because it was the overwhelming flavor

Slider trio - standard fair if you crave grease ... you get three filing sliders

Have not tried the other items like spicy broccoli, wings or artichoke. Would recommend this place. Surprisingly a lot of locals from the neighborhood come here and there is a reason why.

“lovely sandwiches, at a reasonable price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

very good selection at a reasonable price, made to order, not a lot more to say only that it is not open at weekends, probaby because it caters for the business traveller in the week.

“Good Value”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012

You wouldn't expect too much from a restaurant in a hotel but this provides good value, friendly service and pretty quick food. We had the 3 course meal for I think $25. Nothing exceptional but nice quick meal
