Came in this morning for a late breakfast. My friend had the Breakfast sandwich (very good!) and I had the salmon Benny breakfast special. My salmon Benny was delicious! English muffin, cream cheese, salmon, poached egg, hollandaise and dill. Very delicious and hit the spot!...More

Terrible. I am mortified. 4 adults, 2 kids. Burgers, fish and chips. Nothing fancy. Over $200 bill. We were there for just over 2 hours!! Took about 15min after getting seated for drink order. Then another 25min to get the drinks. Slow, forgetful, terrible service....More
