I visited here Tuesday night w a large group of coworkers as we were in town and staying near by for a conference. My son who is stationed in Norfolk joined us. The staff was friendly and very attentive. Because our waitress was so good,...we gave her a large tip and my son gave her an additional $100 added onto his credit card. The next day when reviewing is credit information, the $100 tip had been turned into a $1000 tip. He spoke w the management and as of this writing the issue hasn't been resolved. In a time where businesses are struggling to stay afloat, it's the wrong time for such a fraud against customers. Use cash, apparently someone has a problem as I know this isn't the 1st time for this businessMore

Really great restaurant. Great food and the customer service was excellent! They went above and beyond to help me in dealing with a matter after I ate there. The restaurant is run by great people. I highly recommend eating there!

We waited to for a bit to be seated in a place only 1/4 full. They seemed short-staffed and the staff that was working did not seem excited to be there. When we were finally seated it took forever to get a wait person and...beers took 15 mins to show up. The pretzels were great but the beer cheese had developed the film sauces get from having been served and sitting out for a while. The rest of the meal - fish and chips, bangers- only okay. Not sure what all the hype is unless you don’t get out of town much. Recommendation: try 1 or 2 other places before you settle here.More

While I will say that food was pretty good, our dining experience was terrible. I had the salad with salmon which was a large portion and my husband had the beef dip, also a large portion. Our server clearly did not enjoy her job and...it showed. When asked questions about the menu she just pointed at the menu, not really speaking. Our food took a long time to arrive and finally we asked to speak with the manager. She did apologize and claimed that they were staffed in the kitchen and gave a slight discount. The biggest disappointment was the smell of the restaurant, when we left, even our clothes smelled.More

We were one of the few in the restaurant for an early lunch on a Tuesday. Everyone was very pleasant and the food was good.

Service was a little slow but the bartender was swamped. The food was amazing, the live performance was very invigorating...it keep the mood positive and help us forget how long we were there. We will visit again

The food was quite good, but sitting near the kitchen i heard the management's unfair and cruel harassment of staff, despite her valid retorts. The staff was great, but the people in charge need some work.

Great food and staff is nice. We at outside and found it to be very pleasant. I got the corned beef sandwich, which was great and my wife liked her chicken sandwich a lot.
