Was one of the few places open on a very cold afternoon. Had the chopped steak and fish & chips. The service was friendly though not attentive. Chopped steak with pea and baked potato was OK. Came with salad that was mostly lettuce and croutons. Fish & chips tasted like off the shelf. Would probably not return.

Nice cozy place where a lot of the locals seem to come. Reasonably priced breakfast served by friendly staff. Portion sizes good. Had the ham steak breakfast and would recommend it.

Our family had lunch here on a weekend afternoon. The waitress was friendly, and everyone found something they liked - club sandwich, chicken fingers, burgers...all priced very reasonably. They have added a children's menu, but our kids ordered from the adult menu and were very pleased with the sandwich and chicken. We were there at an off-time, so maybe we lucked out that no-one was smoking, but the place didn't smell smokey or anything. They had lots of cute decorations up for Halloween and that was entertaining to the kids. Overall, very nice experience good value and pretty good food.

Had breakfast here, the food was good, although not outstanding. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Lunch, on the other hand was the bomb! The fish was the best I had on the island, the batter light and done to perfection. Great fries to go with it.

Portion size was enormous -- could easily feed 2 or 3 from one lunch!

Will return for more of that!

Restroom was clean, restaurant was clean and we cleaned our plates. Just one place to go if other places are too packed, convenient & close to main roads.
