Arrived early evening and the place was almost empty but the service was very slow due to lack of staff. The food was just awful.,cheap, burgers which were overcooked, dry and inedible.. (took them home to the dog, hes not too fussy!) The chips were also cold, limp and nothing on the plate looked appetising. A very disappointing and expensive... More

Came here tonight with my girlfriend. Started the night with the sharing platter. I would definitely recommend! Very good for two people with a good variety of food! The highlight was the ribs they were soo tender. The meat fell off the bone! Delicious. For the main I had the jack burger. It was soo big and even better extremely... More

Been going to this place since I was a kid at least a couple times every few years. Ok the decor could do with a revamp, and yes I'm sure there are better American themed places out there. But for value, consistency, decent waiters and waitresses, portions. I don't believe there is better in the area.

Have been coming to this restaurant for a few years now and have always had nothing short of a great evening. From large gatherings of 10+ for special occasions, (always book to be sure) to a small group of 3/4 friends, myself and others have always enjoyed our evening. The food is lovely and portions generous, the price is fair... More

I was invited to this restaurant on a friends birthday and, as American burger bars go, it was okay. Service was cheerful enough but the food was predictable and just standard stuff.

Quite pricey for what you get. Portions are small and extras are also pricey. In all it was disappointing and we wont be returning.
