Food is very good, as is the service. There was a major renovation since our last visit, and it greatly improved the place.

Good and varied food, but very slow depending on what you order. Very nice terrace tables, rain permitting.

We just popped into this place because we were hungry and wanted a beer. The wait staff were prompt and very good. We just had a burger and fries and they were fantastic! We almost couldn't get our mouths around them and the fries were perfect. The beer selection was excellent as they featured several Alaskan brews on tap.
