“Not Great”
Reviewed August 1, 2011

The food was fairly standard, but not great. Most of us had burgers which were fairly decent, though not the greatest meat. We shared 2 starters (chicken wings & jalapeno balls), which I suspect had been purchased from Iceland and thrown in the fryer frozen. They were pretty tasteless and dry.

The main problem with the meal though was the steak that one of our party ordered. It had an odd greenish tinge to it, dropped a lot of water when cut into (possibly also from frozen) and was cooked really badly.

There's not a lot of choice in Blackpool so it's worth going here, but don't expect too much and definitely steer clear of the steak.

“Family Friendly”
Reviewed July 26, 2011

Not the kind of place we would normally eat but Blackpool centre is limited for good food. Very family friendly, waitress was extremely friendly, reasonable prices. Good atmosphere and typical american style restaurant. Great burgers and caters for different food intolerances. The menu did not state that the ceasar salad had cheese on top, as soon as I advised tat I could not have cheese they just got me a fresh salad with no problems. Quite a few steps to get to the restaurant so not great for disabled access.
