We are a relaxed casual dining experience with a bar and outside dining available downstairs and an upstairs dining area with 70 seats which makes it perfect for functions. We look forward to seeing you soon.

“Didnt deliver”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 December 2012

This restaurant is in a great location, but no restaurant in this building has survived long in business so we thought we would give The Styx a chance. We walked in to the restaurant and were greeted with a girl who said "take a seat anywhere, i ll bring our menus". We waited ten minutes and our menus never came. We went to counter and got some. We waited another ten minutes and no one came to take our order. This is a new restaurant trying to establish so youd think they would be trying hard tonget it right. The menu wasnt anything flash. Our party didnt see anything that particularly interested them. I think the prob was the restaurant is poorly set up with a separate upstairs, downstairs areas, plus upstairs and downstairs outside areas. We never saw the girl again, and a young male was doing his best looking after tables in another area. Rent is high in this area and it really seemed to us that there was no senior management, but using students. We just walked out. So we never got to try the food. I cant rate that. Have never done that before but the service was terrible. We werent valued. I dont rate this as a restaurant, but I think it will do well as a bar and drinks.
