The service was excellent. The outdoor patio is quite nice. Good happy hour special... $5 for beer on tap. The breaded chicken burger was just okay. Not very filling.

I attend a private function here and was very impressed with the food and service. The haddock and beans were just amazing along with the deserts. I recommend it to a few other friends to attend and they were equally impressed with their experience.
