“Very good meal”
Reviewed July 30, 2014

In the area for a family reunion so this was one of the late night destinations for the crowd. Planned a meal for 10 one night and had a great time. Wide variety on the menu, even for the kids. Great service.

“Awkward ”
Reviewed June 3, 2014 via mobile

Showed up 10 minutes before they closed didn't think it would be a big deal but the bartender just stood be homd the bar and stared at us as did most of the staff. I'm a server too. I don't get upset when someone shows up 10 minutes before close I look at it as more cash in my pocket.I feel that restaurants have hours for a reason and as a customer I should not be treated any different from a person who shows up at 7:30. It's summer and people are going to eat later. Food was not very good either. I had the fish and chips for $15 I got a basket of soggy fries and 1 piece of cod that looked like it has been cut into 4 pieces it just looked sad I ended getting another piece but that wasn't the point just the way it was presented and prepared was just gross. It just wasn't worth $15.

“We Have A Winner!”
Reviewed March 2, 2014 via mobile

Thumbs up on everything! Fast seating to the dining area. Attentive server, great portions, excellent garlic bread and over-the-top coleslaw! Love the atmosphere! Only negative is we were told they are closing in two weeks for a six-week menu adjustment....please don't discontinue the coleslaw....or garlic bread....or Riesling.
