Sis and I both enjoyed a lunch of linguine marinara. Plenty of fresh seafood and linguine was perfectly cooked. Service was friendly and efficient and there was a nice vibe to the place. Will go again.

Enjoyed a tasty meal with friends. Not too pricey. Too noisy for group conversation. My pasta special of the day was delicious but a little on the cold side. They well catered for our gluten free friend.

The food here is great, dinner especially is always delicious but also always very affordable! The fish of the day never seems to disappoint! Happy hour beer and wines are great, and the staff are always very friendly.

Went there yesterday and found that even though it was busy, the service was very good and front of house staff were friendly and courteous. One downside though - a friend ordered a Republic club sandwich (see photo) described in the menu as having bacon...More
