In a town full of great food, this restaurant provides solid fare, nothing extraordinary, but if you enjoy quirky, hip, in the know places and a dog or two under your feet, you will love this place. Full of cool local folks.

The restaurant is located on Wisbeach Road in Sea Point so I would assume the name has something to do with that.
