This restaurant offers a good selection of tasty food and happy hour prices. The lounge is bright and appealing with a small selection of good, moderately priced wine. We tried the pizza’s and enjoyed the food and good service.

Love the food here and the Resturant staff is great! Many of them are long time employees who really look after you. Large portions of food and free refills on a lot of items like soft drinks, salad and their awesome bread loaves.
