“Value for money and huge portion”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 March 2013

Had a late lunch on 22 Feb 2013. My wife ordered seafood chowder. Very tasty and well balance in the flavours. I have Chicken burger - big portion and healty too. Overall, really good value and good quality meal. No regrets visiting this restaurant.

“Completely inconsistent!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 March 2013

We ate at this restaurant two days in a row and our experiences could not have been more different. The first day we had a late dinner of burgers (delicious, huge, and only $10) The waitress was friendly, service was friendly and unrushed, although they were busy. The atmosphere was warm and eclectic. We liked it so much we went back the next day for an early supper midday. We sat at a table and were completely ignored by the staff who chatted together behind the counter. Finally, I got up and asked for a waitress and was told that they didn't have table service until the evening meal. So we ordered at the counter. I asked if someone could wipe the table off because it clearly had not been done. A girl came over and WIPED OFF HALF OF THE TABLE in a perfunctory manner and walked away. So, even though the food was good, we would never eat there again because of the poor service.

“Consistent Good Value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2013 via mobile

I have an office near by and eat lunch, grab coffee here on a regular basis. Decor is nothing to write home about but food is of good quality, service efficient/friendly and menu well priced. Simple but consistent.

“The Black Dog - Amazing Quantity”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2013

My husband, daughter and myself stopped in there for a bite to eat which was right next door to the Scenic Hotel. Two of us ordered the grilled fish plate and my daughter the fish burger. The staff were friendly, the atmosphere was quiet, and when the food arrived, we couldn't believe it! The quanity of my plate was 4 pieces of fish, fries and a side salad. It was enough to feed a family of 3! The fishburger was giagantic! The food was good, tasty and filled us for the remainder of the night. I highly recommend this restaurant especially if you have growing boys!

“Good food and good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 February 2013

This is a great place to eat. The servings are huge and the prices are good. Try the seafood chowder ... it's really super and comes with a crisp and large slice of bread. The steaks and fish mains are very good too.
