Great food, my wife's burger was enormous and delicious. They have a kids menu, and had a high chair for our son. Definitely more of a bar/club than a restaurant, but great food and very good service.

Really enjoyed going. Food was excellent. Staff friendly. Love a beer in a milk bottle. Can recomend having a Muldoon. Deco is all 1980's so had fun remembering that part of my life.

Hi, Sorry I can't quite remember. I think my pizza was around $18.00. Pasta dishes might have been similar. My husband's big steak and salad and chips was more expensive.
