On some visits the food has been great, other times it has been below par. But nice setting and staff are always nice.

We had 2 lunches and a dinner meals because it is addictive. The beef stew and vegetable soup are two recipes I wish I could duplicate. For dinner the local fish was fabulous. Nice presentation, even better taste. Friendly service at the bar and restaurant. Highly recommend.

The service was outstanding - friendly, welcoming and courteous and the food was... More

Went here for lunch with two families. Good food, prompt and friendly service, very welcoming to our children, excellent value, generous portions - even for the children's menu, appeared rightly popular... They made a very good bloody mary cocktail to exact specifications!!

We showed our id to prove our age only to have him say to us that we look about 12 (we're 18) and made snarky comments about us to other people... More
