It is right in the front of the Quality Inn motel. They had a good selection of dishes. I had the Duck leg and it was done nicely with good favor, and my wife had the roast and enjoyed her meal too. The place is busy, but we got a table without having a reservation, but I see where they... More

Nice meal with friends, meal and service was lovely. Had the lamb shank. Very tender. Just needed more mashed potatoes and maybe a extra carrot. Cheese cake was delicious. Will dine there again.

We didn't have high hopes for this 'Motel' restaurant, but it was next door and convenient. The quality however was very good, and we returned the following night for more! The scallops were particularly good, as was the lamb shanks.

Stayed at quality inn which is attached to the restaurant. Didn't feel like table for one, so ordered at bar to be sent to my room. Was told there was a bit of a wait since they were very busy which didn't worry me too much. My meal arrived at my room within 15 minutes! I'd love to know how... More

The staff are so friendly and bubbly, the food is amazing and very good value for money, would highly reccomend and will definitly return for their wonderful scallops. I also had a cooked breakfast each day of my stay and found the two eggs with an additional item was great value for $14.00 absolutely awesome.
