“Average food and average service”
Reviewed 23 January 2014 via mobile

I was quite keen to try the restaurant out after the reviews read but must admit was disappointed.

I went for lunch and the basic issues were

1) no one bothered to greet me when I came into the restaurant even though they were charting at the bar

2) I ordered the tempura fish and chips which was slightly soggy and not hugely full of flavor

3) extras asked for were bought to the table but without any happiness and more like a chore.

4) no one bothered to see if I was happy with my meal

Maybe I had a bad session but compared to all the other restaurants we have tried in the last week in Umhlanga, this has to rate as average in service and Definately the poorest in service.

“Best ribs on the north coast”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

This place is lively all the time for all ages. Well looked after by the staff. Food is great and reasonably priced accordingly. The ribs are the best, the meat just falls off the bone and tastes delicious. No ales, but the selection of drinks makes up for it.

“Great food but they don't sell ale”
Reviewed 2 January 2014

Food is amazing. Burgers are really good but the jalapeño poppers are the best. Pity they only sell lager beers and absolutely no ales as the name implies
