Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Worst food we have had in a long time. Myself, my partner and two friends went to this restaurant yesterday for some lunch. We got chicken wings, and others god crispy honey chicken strips. Firstly the chicken wings were 95% batter 3% bone and 2%...chicken. Worst I've had in a very long time. Every single one of us were sick that evening vomiting and the next morning we were all extremely sick. Avoid at all costs. We had high hopes looking at the other reviews but simple things like the menus being dirty and the toilets smelling... I'm not surprised we are all sick as the kitchen is probably of a similar hygiene standard. We will most certainly not be back.More

Despite being busy with locals - always a good sign - service was good in this family owned and operated establishment. The portions were large and very tasty. Wonderful atmosphere and seating in the front window provided a nice view out onto "the diamond".

We are so thankful they were able to take on our party of 7. Everything was perfect. The service was great and the prices fair. From the drinks and apps all the way to desert we were all satisfied. The ribs, wings, steak, and vegetarian...options were all great. I would certainly eat here again.More
