It is a buzzing place with a small salad bar. The Ribs were good. so were the steaks. Stay with the grills and don't go for the seafood. The Salmon was overcooked and for the oysters…maybe go to a seafood restaurant.

We booked a table, but was firstly seated in a tucked away table around a corner away from other diners. Asked to move, waitress understood, and she was great. Steaks were delicious, I asked for medium and it was slightly overcooked, but flavour was great, and the salad bar options were varied, and constantly topped up and refreshed. Kids meals... More

Service is great, lovely staff. Serving sizes are good and it's great with the salad bar. Meals were average though, just lacking a bit of flavour. It's a nice atmosphere, very private with booths, it's just a shame about the food itself.

Good range of steaks. The salad bar was well patronised with a good selection. our birthday girl was well satisfied. Few vegetarian dishes offered. (It may be a steakhouse but vegetarian partners like to eat too!) Good place for that special meal.
