I have been going to this restaurant since I was about 10 years old. I'm 32 now. Yyou may remember it being called 'Zaks'. In all of those years I have found 2 hairs in my food, and that was the same night! I never feel let down by the food or the portions. However, those prices are starting to... More

Went here for a birthday meal, we were given a table in front of the front door.. which ruined everything right at the beginning. It was freezing with people walking in and out and at one point one of my friends couldn't sit down at the table once going to the loo due to the amount of people queuing behind... More

Had a late dinner here last night. Managed to phone up at 7pm and book a table for 9pm at this popular Great Yarmouth American style eatery. - it was surprising as we know it's a popular place. Centrally location and a hidden gem in many ways. We were taken into the bar on the right hand side as you... More

Havent been here in years I had the ribs £17 I just felt there was two ribs on the plate which were fatty a pile of chips and salad coleslaw and corn this is so overpriced the waiting staff didn't even ask if we enjoyed our meal . Sgt. peppers is better value and far tastier food !!

Came on the recommendation of a friend. Table was slightly dirty when we arrived which was off putting. Cutlery didn't smell pleasant either, very 'metallic'. I ordered the burger with BBQ sauce; the burger itself was saturated in grease and tasted absolutely foul. Could not eat it! Came with a HUGE side of delicious fries though, and the salad was...

Ate here last month, I am struggling to remember a worse meal I have endured. The sauce my burger came with was truly disgusting. The fries came out lukewarm, the burgers were cheap and nasty, and the buns could easily have been any supermarket 'economy / value' quality. We came here having eaten at Zaks in Norwich which was much... More
