Poor service, lack of care, bar so low in columbia no one even notices anymore. Drinks took 15 mins, had to get and get my own silverware, ketsup, mustard, and second drink order.

Ordered the Fish N Chips. Very tasty and hot. It was obviously cooked and brought out right away. Had good flavor and good portion. I ordered the small and it was all I could eat. Great service. Will be back!
