“Huge, Delicious Feed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2013

We ate here for lunch. Our kids wanted ribs (which weren't an option in the kids menu) so we ordered the platter for four. It was huge! There was ribs, kebabs, crab dip, calamari, onion rings, hot chips, wedges, fish, chicken wings ...... loads of food. Everything tasted great & we couldn't finish it. Service was excellent & good atmosphere.

We ate here a few times and it was fantastic each time! The ribs are so delicious, actually everything we ate was very good! I would recommend the crab dip as an app!
