The food was over all good. The steaks were the best. The ribs so so and the lamb chops ok. It's was pretty busy but the service was very good. We'd go back for a good steak.

We stopped in a 5:00 and got a table in the bar area, a bit later would have be quite a wait. The steak and baked potato, as well as the salad were good. The meal was not cheap but in this case you get...More

As noted in an earlier answer, you don't have to sit at the bar itself for burgers on Mon-Tues-Wed, just in the bar side of the restaurant (to the right of the entry), and there are a number of tables there. I've gone there... More
