We have been going to this restaurant since it opened ,the staff is unusually friendly. In my opinion they do and ask job. The fish and chips are The best I've ever had anywhere, at any price. The prices are reasonable and the bar area is a lot of fun.

I've been there dozens of times and never leave disappointed. Also, the service is wonderful. Always service with a smile and they chat with my kids and everyone feels great.... More
