We were a large party- 2 big tables- servers were on it! The burger was the best I have ever had and they actually use real potatoes for French fries!

A neighborhood restaurant feel with an incredible view. Our waitress Emily made the evening an A+ and the food was great. Our son posted a pic of the French fries. They are epic! The real deal! We will be back

Always fun and interesting, and this season's menu changes are awesome. Fresh catch prawns last night were AMAZING, and so was the playlist. Loved it, as usual!

I stopped by here one evening with colleagues looking for dinner. It has an interesting atmosphere, with what appears to be a Ouija Board on one wall. The menu is also interesting, I had Steak Frites which came with truffle fries, it was very tasty...More
