Great food, prices are good and staff are friendly. The wait is long at lunch so get there early. Large selection of food.

McFarlain's is great because it has shops, the restaurant and a cinema, so there's something to keep you busy for the whole day! Busses are plentiful at McFarlain's, which tells you how popular it is.

We've counted on this restaurant for years for a good meal. Good variety and I've never had a meal I did'nt like. Save room for their excellent pie. Traffic jam pie is my favorite. Yum!

We stumbled upon this restaurant after seeing the John Denver Show. The food was delicious. Warm homemade corn bread and the fish and chips tasted fresh.
