Stopped in here for lunch as we fancied a burger. Bit of a strange atmosphere and layout but could well be lively at night. Food was really greasy and not very good at all, none of us finished our burgers!

Very good food, heavy handed drinks, and nice atmosphere. Has a lot of HD televisions to watch sporting events. Can get a little crowded on Friday and Saturday nights.

As far as I know, they are still open. I have not stopped in since my last visit as there are many other places of better value for my dollar and time.
