Sunday visit for lunch. Fast service, staff friendly. The meals were tasty. The beef dip and the order of Fish and Chips were really enjoyed.

I stopped by on a Friday night for a quick bite. I saw a 'Cod Cheeks' special and decided to order that as a starter. It was great and I'd definitely order it again. For the main, I opted for the Mediterranean Fire Grilled Quarter Chicken which came with vegetables and roasted potatoes. The meal was OK, though a little overdone.

I have become a very fussy beer drinker and was very happy to see Fat Tug IPA on the menu (One of my favourites).

Unfortunately, I have forgotten the name of the guitar soloist, but he was very talented, played a wide range of tunes and kept the audience very happy.

The rib special of 2 for 1 on Thursdays is certainly helpful when a family or couple is looking to save a little on dinner.
Heard the sauce and ribs were oustanding.
Found the sauce to be a normal BBQ, nothing memorable about the ingredients, tang, etc.

The ribs may have been boiled, or steamed as they did fall off the bones, but did not have the long slow roasted texture to the meat. They finished them in an oven.

There is a large side salad that they have put some attention to the ribbon carrots and other touches - great to have when looking to add veggies to the 'on the road diet'.

Great options for craft beer - lots of seating and seem to have great daily specials.

Monday is the day that the cook makes the most fabulous seafood chowder so be SURE to go on a Monday if you want some of the most outstanding chowder you have ever eaten. Hamburgers are pretty good too!

Had intentions of stopping at Hammer's House of Hog but it was closed (sadly). Wound up randomly choosing this place for lunch. Service was excellent - our server was very friendly and did a really good job but the food was disappointing. We had the special ribs of the day and they were just okay - nothing like the bbq down the road. It's not like they were inedible... just a very average meal, not much love put into it.
