The food is better and more creative than expected without being over the top. Visiting the old jail afterwards is fun for all. The staff are quick, hard-working, friendly and efficient.

The historic site very interesting ... however the food was very greasy and the facility seemed old and tired...

Stay Away. This place is disgusitng. We have been there twice and both times it was terrible. The first time two of our four dishes were burnt. The second time I ordered vegetarian lasagna and it was frozen in the centre after being told it was made fresh. My two children didnt finish their meals and went to McDonalds afterwards. The building is great looking inside and out, they simply need kitchen staff who are competent.
They can do better!!

Went here with my parents and believe it or not they burned nacho chips we ordered before our meal . Didn't think that was possible. Have not been back since as I was so disgusted.In fairness to the establishment this was about 5 years ago so I don't know if there are new owners since.
