After reading some reviews, passing by for years, and looking at their coupons in the Val-peak that come in the mail, we thought we would give this place a try. Well all I can say is once was quite enough. It was raining Friday night so the patio was closed, the inside is so very small, maybe 6 or 8... More

Outside looks better than inside. Found hamburger & fries greasy, add-ons mediocre, poor selection. Service poor.

used to be better back in the day, but it isn't crowded anymore so parking and getting table is easy.

MG has been around forever with a loyal following. Good beer menu, lots of burger type choices. Not inexpensive, but not expensive either. Outdoor seating available. A decent "joint" as they used to say, though not inspiring.

We only had beer and wine, but it is a nice easy walk from the train station. And who could resist going to see a bar after playing Monopoly for all those years? It was a little noisy in the middle of the afternoon, and we didn't have a chance to see what the pizza might have looked like but... More

This place is ideal for a Friday lunch outside during the warm weather. Burgers, fish & chips are almost always great. We have had a few bad meals there, so can't be depended upon for consistently good food. I also had my license plate stolen from my car when parked outside a few years back. The area is spooky at...
