I took my wife and 3 young children here. The food was good with a wide variety of American food and the staff were very friendly. The decor was a bit tired and could do with a little bit of a clean but overall as a family restaurant it was very nice.

Stopped in with my kids on a short break to Dunoon. Service was great, food was delicious and we're planning to come back in summer with friends.

The only thing wrong was the sheer amount of choice on the menu! TexMex, Italian and much more. Have eaten here a lot and it is consistently good food and friendly service. The sharing ice cream desserts are stunning. Nice atmosphere-would advise booking for a weekend night. Great for lunch or dinner.

Was at the 51st state for lunch with my best buddy on 23/04 the service was great and so was the food. I had the chicken and bacon club sandwich and it was delicious, my friend got the cheese burger which looked amazing. Can't fault it
