Service was immediate and friendly. We had a great meal in a minimum amount of preparation time. Service was very attentive and accommodating. It felt like “Norm” could walk through the door any minute.

We stopped in a bit skeptical as it really looked like mostly a bar. You could still faintly smell the cigarette smoke as the decor doesn't look changed from the 70s. We had the fish and chips and they were great! True surprise as I...More
