Met friends there on a Saturday afternoon. Restaurant was quiet and wait staff was very helpful with menu questions. Food was excellent - especially the onion rings! Street parking was available.

We had a reduced menu but everyone seemed really pleased with their meals. Service a started off a bit slow, but on reflective I think that was our fault as every time the... More
