“Brownies and ice cream Ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2014

At the end of a long day the welcome was superb. The staff were friendly and efficient to perfection. Great atmosphere and background music.
The highlight was choosing from the dessert menu. The ice creams were tempting. The phish food (tiny chocolate fish shapes) were irresistible to one of us. I chose brownies, big marshmallows, ice cream and sauce. When they arrived , although full after an excellent meal, the bowls were soon empty. American coffees completed the treat.
We will definitely return.

“Friendly waiter and good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2014

Our teen son loved the Piggy Small burger and we both had the fish and chips. Fish was great, chips should have been thick style, not mcdonalds like. Casual fun atmosphere with attentive and friendly wait staff. Sit by the windows for nice view of inner harbor

“Lovely food, great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014 via mobile

Friendly staff and lovely food. My girlfriend assures me that the veggie burger was one of the best she's ever tasted.

Staff were friendly and very quick, the restaurant itself was in a lovely setting over looking the dock. Recommended!

“OVER PRICED OVERRATED AND ORRIBLE!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014 via mobile

Very expensive for the average food you receive.
Prices on the menu are confusing.
No atmosphere.
Portions are big but I prefer quality over quantity.
Mcdonalds type fries need to be upgraded to chunky chips.
Would not visit again.
