    The food was lovely. The wine was a bit better than ok but not wonderful, but then I don't necessarily expect that in a chain restaurant.

    Went for dinner on Friday night. Staff were warm and welcoming and overall on top of their game. Quality of the food was great and we left very satisfied. Also got to chat to the manager who was a great guy. Would recommend to anyone who likes their seafood fresh and their beer cold.

    We went on a Sunday lunch and ordered the fish tacos and they were delectable! We also ordered like a seafood basket of some sort it wasn’t bad but the tartare wasn’t what we are use too it tasted a bit buttery in my opinion. But other than that I will definitely be going back! :)

    Initial service was good, and the mains were very good (how can you go wrong with fish and chips). But a change in waiter was problematic. Maybe he was new. He presented the bill before we had a chance to order desserts. We asked for the dessert menu. Ten minutes later he returns: "We don't really do desserts". What? What restaurant doesn't do desserts? Had we known we would have ordered a starter. Anyway, the ice cream shop on the corner served the purpose. And don't sit anywhere near the front half on winter. Every time the door opens you get hit by an arctic blast. Suggestions t the owner: add some simple desserts and and seal the front entrance.

    The food was fine however service was appalling. The wait staff roamed up and down the floor appearing board due to not many people dinning in the restaurant. However didn’t offer more wine when our glasses were empty, didn’t check our food was okay. I had to get up three times to ask someone if we could order drinks and for sauce. Customer service really enhances the experience and it was extremely lacking.
