Not in the least sophisticated but with attentive service. The food is good. We had the line fish and veggies, well cooked and tasty, and a burger with a good char and crispy fries. Pricing is reasonable.

Their early bird special fitted well into our timing for the Marc Lottering show at nearby Baxter. ET pronounced the deep-fried calamari very good; my sirloin was SO tender (quipped owner Al, “Customer got the wrong order - should have been the tough one”). And...More
