Quite literally my mother's food. Average at best. Go there for a 'dop and tjop' ... Go elsewhere for a proper gourmet meal.

This is a restaurant where you will find friendly staff and quick service. Their Tbone special is a good meal to have before 18:00. Well done.

Great place to hangout and knock down a few beers. Parking a little tight. Food is pub food but of good quality.

We had the special which was the steak and the beer. The service was quick and friendly and the food was really good. Well done.

It's a nice place to sit out on the deck and enjoy the sun sitting next to the water. It has a different vibe because of this. A nice place for sitting outside or in the pub.

Not a nice experience. We waited 20 minutes before a waiter came with the menu. Waited another 15 minutes before he came back for the drinks order and waited another 20 minutes for our drinks. We finished our drinks, paid the bill and left. Terrible...More

Ribs and wings was a sad attempt at one of SA's favorite foods. The outside area looks rundown and in need of some TLC. Service not too bad. Staff friendly and helpful

The food is the worst in Secunda. They can't even make a lettuce here. Forget about service it's a mystery and at large. If you need a drink it's a place to go. If you need to smoke other peoples smoke pull in.
