A typical sports bar/restaurant with friendly, sassy service in pleasant dining areas. An extensive menu to suit mists tastes: fish , chicken , beef and salads. Not over fancy, but comfortable and clean. Main courses about $10 to$20 with lesser priced "hand healds" and snacks. A wide choice of wine and beer at good prices.

Good menu at very reasonable prices good choice of beer and wines. Careful with the the small computers on each table ,start answering the quiz questions and you end up with a charge on your cheque.

Lime chicken was ok. Too much sauce, and rice tasted like it had been sitting for a while. Onion Rings came with BBQ sauce??

I order chicken with avocado sallad but got another spicy chicken with melon sallad, she will change - but I think they just move the spicy chicken to the other sallad. It was to spicy to eat - sorry but I think this not OK. Will not come back !

Joined friends here for Saturday lunch. Had the Thai Shrimp Salad --spicy, crisp and full of shrimp with an exciting salad dressing. Prompt and cheerful service. Will probably return for the $7.99 burgers on a Monday.

Thank Al B
