Very good overall. Walked right in on a Friday night and got a table. Fried pickles, Veggie panini, turkey club and hamburger all with fries were very tasty. Attentive and fairly quick, but not rushed, service. On street/metered parking available. Would definitely go back!

We enjoyed a satisfying supper here on a busy Friday night. The "Maui" turkey burger was terrific and everyone liked the curly fries.

Young friendly, and energetic wait staff. We were under a bit of time pressure and our waitress was wonderfully accommodating. Excellent pub-style dishes were served hot and in unison. Portions were generous. Very large selection of draught and bottled beers.
