“Fantastic! My workmates told me about this place, I must admit I wasn't expecting it to be as great as it was. We had the $16 Steak Special (Wednesday Nights) and the piece of steak that came out was perfect. Thick, yet perfectly cooked and juicy. The fries were fantastic. There is a separate little kids room with books, toys and even a play-station. The Service was excellent and all the meals really nice. Very pleasantly surprised. Will be returning soon.”

“Omg this place is amazing! Partner and I had the full rack and a spare and it was delicious. (All you can eat Pork Ribs Thursdays is the best) thank you so much to our lovely waitress she was so lovely, professional and always checked up on us. I would totally recommend this place to anyone who has a good appetite! Definitely coming back! 🙂 x”

“My first visit to this Restaurant. Very inviting upon entering and very clean and tidy also. They have a play area decked out especially for the young children inside also. Customer service very on point. The meal I ordered was very tantalizing to the tastebuds and the side salad was made with very fresh ingredients. The meals are reasonably priced I consider value for money also. I won't hesitate in recommending this restaurant to any of my friends. I will definitely be returning again sometime soon to try another meal off their menu.”
