Great food, reasonably priced, and the place has character. All four of us -- including an 8 and a 17 year old -- had a great meal. If I lived nearer, I'd eat my way through their menu, trying everything. Definitely recommend.

Called in twice for a bit of dessert and enjoyed both. The key lime pie was not as good as mum's but pretty good for a dinner. The fried pie was also good, but get the ice-cream with it. But just eat, take a look...More
