Reminds me of the description of a swiss army knife. "Lot's of tools, but none are working very well".
This place seems to try to be all things to all people, and fails miserably at them all.
They're trying to be a sports bar.., trying to be a pub.., trying to be a barbecue place.., trying to be a side-walk cafè.., trying to be an after business hangout.., trying to be.. everything.
However..., the place is huge.., and they seems to save money on staff. The staff can't handle it! Trying to reach everything they're dripping of sweat, constantly biting back at customers trying to get their attention...
We spent 3 hours in the place, seated at the bar, got two grossly expensive cheapo beers Hansa pilsner (at approx 13 USD a glass...!..) paid for the beers. Then we ordered some "barsnacks" with it; 10 buffalo wings (at 22 USD...!..) and a "handfull" of french fries (at a whopping 9 USD). After like 45 minutes our beers were empty, and then some soggy fries arrived... and no offers for new beers.., 20 minutes later the buffalo wings appeared.., with the actual "soggy" fries we had ordered.., (The first load of fries belonged to another disappointed table...).., and still no offers for fresh beers..(we're seated at the bar...;-) ..) Then another 45 minutes passes by and we're constantly trying to get the attention of staff to order us a couple more beers, as our empty glasses are prominently visible in front of us..., no reaction.. After another 20 minutes, we've basically had it with this place.. and are looking for a way to pay for our buffalo wings and fries.... Long story short.., paying for the snacks took us another 25 minutes. And the place was'nt even one third full.
At one point we even saw staff cleaning tables with a dirty rag, before going straight over to cut slices of bread to serve guests..without cleaning hands first!
We are never coming back!

Bad and slow service . Food was overpriced and not tasty. Waste of money and embarrassing because we took our clients to this place

I go here pretty often, mostly because of the great location and their awesome roof top terrace. On a hot summers day it is a prime place to be for a drink and a bite to eat.

They also have great possibilities for pub games, such as shuffleboard, darts, pinball and so on.

Quality of the food has varied a lot from each time I've been there. From very good to quite poor. But then again I go here for the atmosphere and variety of pub games.

Out with colleagues. Was told that my medium-well done Rib-eye had shrunk to half the size of a medium 200g my colleague had ordered because it was "well done". Huge portion of very salty french fries filled my plate. Monday was obviously a really bad day for any good service - disappointing trip to Oslo, expected much better....

I was here with some business guests and we took the BBQ plate. It contains things like ribs, chicken, sausage and it is accompanied with some sides.

I was far from impressed. The ribs were black and dry. The chicken was very dry and the sausage lacked flavour.

The view is great, but Don't expect to be blown away by the food.
