The curry is always good. Ordered a halibut burger last night and it was not fresh at all and the bun was falling apart. Pretty sure it has made me sick. Had one bite and threw it out.

Have been there with groups and as a couple. Really did a great job of handing our large groups of 3o+ patrons. Couple of times went with my wife and found the place fairly empty. Although, friendly the staff left one wondering whether or not one should order at the counter. Service was slow. Clean interior but lacking in atmosphere.... More

Everything from burgers to curry! Kids are also allowed here until 8pm and the food was really good. My only complaint is that it was a little understaffed but the one server on duty did a KICK BUTT job of getting everyone their food and drinks. Also, a fun fish tank for kids to look at. Lots of fun.

We have visited this pub several times over the past few months and have been pleasantly surprised by the quality of the meals and the generous portions. This pub features regular dinner specials every day of the week. We were especially delighted with the curried chicken. If you are new to the area or have not been to visit this... More

If you check I have eaten here and loved the food and the service. The problem this time was the server not the woman behind the bar but the server on the floor. She was so slow and so not interested in even trying to keep up to the needs of the customers. We ordered our drinks first and watched... More

Nice clean pub with a liquor store beside. A good variety of food choices, with daily specials. Fairly large pub with three divided sections; TVs & music. A popular place, especially during the weekend; hence, the service can be a bit slow depending of the time. They have an outdoor patio area. Lots of parking space. A nice place to... More

I have a friend who eats here literally everyday. No joke. He recommended me to go and so I did. No disappointments here. I absolutely loved the Clam Soup. Yummy!

The place is a typical pub, little dated, but quite clean, and the service was excellent. We decided to share an appy on way home and tried their calamari, and we were both impressed with the preparation, as well as the size. our server told us everything is prepared fresh and we could tell the chef took pride in his...

Had thought about going here many times and finally had the chance. Not far off the main road but good pub fare and excellent service. Generous servings and nice bright atmosphere. The fish tank was fun to watch.
