“family restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

Fills its niche efficiently. Plenty of choices for kids. Adult meals are at the higher end compared to other places nearby. Food is good, but not spectacular.
On the night we went, the place was quite child heavy....but that's their market.

“very basic”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2012

Cheap food in very large proportions which give the impression of being a production line meal. The whole place looked like it needed a good clean and is very dated in appearance.

“Good steaks, the rest is average and over priced.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

We've been here a few times and with mixed reviews. Generally it's only the steak that's been alright. The lamb shanks have no flavour and under no circumstances order the fish taco if it becomes a menu special again. The roast of the day is always ham whenever we've been and it would be nice to see a salad on the menu. The cocktails are cheap but I've never tried one.

One nice thing about this place is that it's close to the movies and the decor is lovely and warm. It's the nice seating and convenience that draws us in if we're short on time for dinner before a movie.

“OK food, but pricey”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012

Definately too expensive for what you get. Food is OK, but should really be all less than $25.
