Informal sportsbar with a rough interior and a chaotic setup of TV-screens all over the place - for some reason showing mostly music videos, and no sports on our visit. Good for a few beers and a pizza (good quality pizzas) - delivered from Pizzabakeriet next door. OK selection of beers, with a few bottled craft beers in addition to... More

Decided to have lunch there. Order Spareribs, and count on using your fingers. Simple delightful! Good service, maybe a little to long time to wait for the bill, but on the other hand, doesn't matter, because you can enjoy the view and the people passing by.

Not a lot to say enjoyed the vibe of the bar! If you like sports they have more TV screens than an electronic store the beer is not cheap even for for Norway standards.... As for the food the burgers have far to much sauce and salad in them... Mine just fell apart and was very greasy.... Decent enough bar... More

Me and my husband absolutely loved the food in here. We had pulled pork burger with coleslaw and this tasted amazing. The bar/diner has a great American feel but the only let down was the lady that worked there. She was so miserable and unwelcoming, didn't even smile!

Down on the pier in Tønsberg is this place located. This is the more popular area in Tønsberg, eventhough the prices are a bit above the rest of the city..... As other has said before, the service is average, being an American style place they need to pick it up a couple of levels. But that is typical for several... More

Their service is average, not spectacular, but OK. Food is average, except overcooked fries. Prices isn't too bad. We went there and considered to sit indoors as it was a bit nippy outside, not too cold though. But the stench of old shots and other variations of spirits inside made the idea of sitting there unthinkable. It carries it's label... More

We went there today for a family lunch, we should have turned around when we saw there was only one table taken. food was average and the waitress seemed so angry it made me really uncomfortable....go to Esmeralda or Haveriet instead sure more worth your time and money.

We fell for there kids eat free deal. Sadly even when free the food wasn't worth the money. To top it off, the waitress hates her life, and has a very bad attitude problem. Customers shouldn't have to ask 5 times for a to go bag. We asked if kids eat free when we went in, she said yes, then... More

But don´t have the burgers.... Fried too long. Fries was not good. Other food was good. Beer on tap was ok, other beer was too cold.
