We went with family for dinner last evening. Children are welcome. I had pork schnitzel - very satisfying and filling. We also chose some of their specials plus wine and beer. Made for a great evening

Had drinks and dinner with family on a Friday night while in town. Good fare for kids and adults, with lots of choices. Service was good, but place was jumping. Good beer selection and vegetarian options. Would go back in a flash. Well priced too.
