We arrived and were immediately greeted and seated. Our server came over and took our drink order. Both my husband and I ordered the fish and chips. We find this to be the best fish and chips we have had in the area. They use corn flakes to coat the fish which gave it a light crunchy coating. The fish itself was light and fluffy. We will definitely be going back again

Our waitress was amazing and the food was delicious! Too much ice in the drinks. Love those tator tots! We go here once a week. Covid 19 protocols are the best! We feel comfortable eating here.

They were out of all steak options on Valentines day. This was very disappointing especially since the steak tips were the reason I chose this restaurant. The waitress was great and felt bad but they should have prepped better knowing that was one of their most popular dishes. The other steak dinner was part of their valentines day special menu, so they should have made sure to stock up for that as well.

My girlfriend and I ate here for the first time on Valentine’s Day. The food was awesome. Big menu selection. Very good to accommodate everyone. Almost everything could come in gluten free as well. We had the best waiter we have ever had his name was Mark. We highly recommend him. We could tell he cared a lot about his job and his customers.

Everything ended up great. A bit of a hiccup when we arrived because someone had been already sat with our reservation. Host did her best to get us seated and it took a bit for them to find a server to take us. Server was great once things got started, but it was obvious he was super busy and not ready to take on our table also. Overall we enjoyed ourselves and issues with food were addressed quickly and fixed.

We have gone there countless times since it opened 2 yrs ago and generally have been very satisfied. The people who work there from the managers to the servers and bartenders are always pleasant, go out of their way when asked for something and always have a smile.

Food is delicious and meal well paced. Service was attentive and friendly. My only negative would be that the menu is limited in entrees. If you’re not looking for a burger, the options are minimal.

Front door staff and our waiter were awesome! We were sat along the very see through wall into the kitchen, which would normally be awesome. However, two of the line cooks and one food runner kept their masks below their nose. The food runner even did so as he brought us our food. Not the biggest deal, the line cook who wiped his sweaty forehead with the back of his gloved hand then kept cooking topped the improper mask wearing.

I certainly understand the 90 minute time allocation due to limited dining capacity as a result of COVID restrictions. However, it was a 4:30 reservation and at 5:50 we were told we had 10 minutes left while we were eating our entrees. At 6:00 we were handed boxes for our food and our check while we were still chewing. Again, I understand the challenges but there were 6 empty tables that were in fact being used for seating and not 1 person waiting at the door. It seems like a corporate policy being implemented by people that don’t understand hospitality.
