Sat at the bar for a quick bite. Bartenders that night were fun, great personality. We would definitely return, especially if the same guys were working.

This is my standby when I've had a bad day and want to treat myself. For a quick stop, Billy the Bartender will take great care of you. The bar atmosphere is friendly, easy to strike up a conversation if you want, or just watch the TV or your phone if you don't want. The restaurant area is nice too... More

Average food, but more than edible. However, the waiter sneakily added an extra dollar service to my credit card. I only discovered this because I happened to check my statement and match it with my receipts. Dishonest and thieving. Do not go. Whilst only a dollar, this is a crime.

I like their pizzas. The service was good even though they are often very busy because they are so popular.

Although the mussels I ordered were very tasty, the experience of sitting on the patio while mosquitos buzzed around us was rather annoying. My husband's dish was so unmemorable neither of us can remember what it was. My sister and her husband go there often though, mostly for the mussels.

Our meals were of the highest quality, delivered by attentive and polite waitstaff. The restaurant is always fast-paced, somewhat noisy, but friendly and informal. The food can be counted on as excellent. All the meals I have had here have been wonderful. There is even a smoking room for after-dinner cigars...... Prices are reasonable, cocktails generous, and all in all... More
