We stopped here for lunch yesterday. We didn’t have high expectations but we were very pleasantly surprised by the yummy food we received. We had Calamari, garlic bread, chicken sandwich and pork burger. All were really delicious. Good service too.

Wasn't too crowded when we were there around 11.30am on a Sunday morning. We had the large portion ribs which were spectacular, very decent amount, tender and juicy. The ribs came with fries, which were also very good, and coleslaw which was ok but rather...More
