The raw oysters were very good. We thought there would be music but not this Saturday night. Ask the locals what to order. We order steak and sea spuds which were just ok.

Great spot for locals. The shrimp cocktail is the best ever. Only issue is every time I order onion rings, I get fries? Go Thursday nights for local music.

Have been to Hymel's before but it had been many years and just wanted to see if it had changed. It was really good years ago and was very good last Friday evening. I had remembered it a crowed on Friday evenings from the past...More

Good food, music and dancing, Service was great, after we ate the waitress asked if we wanted anything else so we ordered a cocktail, she said, "Great Ya'll can stay all night if you want, we don't close until 10:00!"
