Four of us went in for lunch. After enjoying fish and chips and teriyaki chicken,we began conversation when a cockroach crawled out from under my wife's plate. We can't bring ourselves to go there again. Disgusting.

Not many choices in the area, but this restaurant is nice, food pretty basic (I had the fried fish and fries) but nice atmosphere with local people. Beautiful paintings on the walls!

First, quality service with a smile....we immediately felt comfortable (as two older ladies that is important!). I ordered fish and chips which was excellent, cooked perfectly and served with delicious tarter sauce. My friend ordered the fish sandwich and it was huge, even so she...More
