Went here because O'Connors was closed. Great choice. This place was packed with repeat, local customers. The food was so good. We had the lamb, classic burger, and salmon - everything perfect. Dessert was the same. Service was also exceptional. kids are welcome.

Traditional menu. The food is not gourmet but this place has stood the test of time and has been in business for a long time. Friendly service and a good range of options. It's like a diner in many ways.

This place was perfect. Great food. Cheap pints of beer compared to rest of galway. Great food portions. we had the battered hake and chips and the burger topped to my liking. Couldn't fault the place. Reasonably priced too. Definitely call here when looking for somewhere to eat in salthill or galway in general. Waitress Danny was very nice also... More
