The food was to die for, both the ribeye which was perfectly cooked and the ribs. Friendly owner and great staff. Also pet friendly.

Excellent venue for a party. Had a graduation party in the chic area upstairs. Place was warmly decorated for the occasion. Food and drinks kept everyone happy. Well done to all the staff and management. Thanks for making the occasion a memorable one.
