    Good "American" food, can get a bit crowded so reservations are suggested for dinner.

    Good burger, terrible dessert. To be fair, the waiter did warn us the only desserts left were the ones in the display case; but still, the worst cheesecake ever.

    When ordered a meal, we asked about a substitute for one of the side dishes. We were told that it could be done. When we got the bill, we were charged for the side dish.

    Everything about this brunch was great......except for the constant nats(fruit flies) flying around we had to send back a drink and several people at my table just stopped drinking their drink all together because of the nats landing in them we informed our server and she seemed genuinely sorry and iformed us they are aware of the nat issue my thing is well gif you are aware why are you open and not handling the obviously apparent issue it really sort of ruined the vibe swatting away nats the whole brunch

    I have been going there for many years since I work in New Brunswick. We went there for dinner, and the cod encrusted with crab was outstanding. My wife had the scallops, and she said they were excellent. Our server was very professional and attentive. The place was crowded with the dinner hour, and the staff was busy. Yet, our server found time to make sure we were satisfied. I recommend the place, especially before the theater. They will get you out in time.

    A staple of New Brunswick restaurants. A very nice "middle road" option in a city with several "high end" restaurants. I always enjoy coming here, as they have a variety of entrees from burgers to steaks to seafood. Always busy and crowded and somewhat loud, and there is a bar area which usually has seating. Reservations usually a necessity for peak times. Our waiter seemed new and as such the service was lacking this time around. But most often service is good. Also has space for larger gatherings. I would recommend.
