“Fun American-style bar / diner”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

Great place with a wide selection of cocktails, fine menu with different burgers, ribs, etc. American atmosphere and ideally located, walking distance from Rotterdam's central station. Outside seating is fine, although alongside a fairly busy road. Sunday night is cocktail night from 7PM. Nice waitstaff, although some were a bit "Dutch" (polite and distant), compared to the otherwise American vibe. Definitely going back soon.

“American-style bar food”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

American-style bar food with burgers, etc. Seems to be a happening after-work bar place. Service was good. They made sure was seated away from a large party that was going on. Front side open to street-side sitting, back side to an enclosed shopping area. Decor is an interesting mix of old '50s-'60s advertisements. Keeps the interest up while you are waiting for the food.

“Great bar food”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

We had a mid-afternoon meal as we had avoided the disgusting Hotel breakfast and were busy over lunchtime.
The club sandwiches were immense and the 'Buffalo' wings looked as if they had come off something closer to an ostrich - I did not know chickens grew to that size! That said they were the tastiest chicken wings ever!!!
Ambience was good, staff were wonderful, drinks very reasonably priced. A good place to visit!

“If you don't have alternatives”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

Not the best place to have a dinner and if you choose it for beers this is not the best as well because the biggest glass is just 33cl (one can...). Quality of the food is not very good, we had hamburgers but the meat was without taste and bread was too dry, condiments were not as you’re expecting from an American restaurant. Portions are far from this kind of restaurants. The atmosphere is quite good and it remains open late at night.

Reviewed September 7, 2012

Really Nice atmosphere, good food and cold beer, the waitress we had was new but very good and attentive, however some of the more experienced staff were a little distracted. Recommended. Great food and drinks and prices
