The person that took my order on the phone was very courteous and obliging. The food was excellent and this service enabled us to have dinner on our deck at home. We will certainly be doing that again. Thanks

We arrived for dinner with no reservation, and the staff was polite and helpful, and the wait not long. Fish and chips were delicious, light and crispy and not oily at all. Great atmosphere and good service. Reasonable.
