The beer was cold and the service was good. Lucky for us it was Wednesday night and the wings were half price. An order of hot and an order of honey siracha were just what the doctor ordered.

I have never had food poisoning in my life ... until this weekend - I had the typical stomach cramps around midnight and then the diarrhea and vomiting started around 1 am ... not sure what they have for safety standards but wow - not pleasant and ruined the rest of my weekend on holidays.

We have never eaten inside and always wait for a nice evening so we can eat on their patio. They have big umbrellas so even on a hot day you should be able to get some shade.

On Saturday evening, they usually have a band playing. We were there Friday and there was one singer and he was very good. Prices are medium. The fish & chips are very large but the Reuben sandwich is not. All were fine, although the french fries seem to be over-fried, so crisp that we did not eat the thinner ones.

Lots of variety re: draft beer; other drinks too, of course. Service was friendly and quite fast at 6pm.

Not the ideal restaurant in some respects but I doubt you would be unhappy eating there on a nice evening when the patio is opent.

Didn't feel clean, but that could have been because the decor is rather dark. The fish batter is must try. potato chips in the batter

Lots of eateries in Port E!gin but chose this one for it's inviting patio right on the main street. We were seated quickly and our waitress came quickly with drink offerings. Lots of beers on tap and she brought us a couple samples before ordering a whole pint. The menu was small and varied. Hubby ordered a burger and I ordered the special which was not a regular menu feature. This was jerk chicken on a bed of rice and beans with mango salsa. Very disappointing. Cook needs to go to Jamaica to try real jerk chicken! No heat in my chicken at all and quite dried out. Flavour was good but not true jerk. And mango was big chunks, not minced. Hubby's burger was a bit too greasy when served up on a pizza bun and fries on the side. We enjoyed our experience here with the outdoor setting and lively atmosphere but food was disappointing. Would try again, but not for a drink, not so much great dining..
