The restaurant is very colourful and unique. They have a large menu for both food and drinks. The serving portions were really good, and the staff was friendly. We found it good value for the money, and would recommend it to friends.

It's convenient with a wide ranging menu- something for everyone. I think sandwiches, appetizers, and salads are better. We went on a holiday weekend and their famous desserts were dried out, the service was spotty , and the entree half dried out and half lukewarm.

Tomato basil soup and deserts are a must do. Bring your appetite. Entrees and service were also good.

Old man rafferty's seems to be one of the locals favourite place. The place was full so I sat in the bar for dinner. The bartenders were very attentive and service minded. The food was ok.

I stopped in with a client to grab a meal and discuss business. They had a nice selection on the menu along with decent choices in craft beer. Service was fast and freindly.

Stopped here with a few work colleagues for a business lunch. Place was fairly full and service was efficient and effective. The food was nothing outstanding but very good with your standard pub/grille fare (burgers, salads, entrees, etc.). They do have a small but well...More
