Went with a group of 10 in June 2017, food was OK. Nice place to go with friends for beers and dinner.

I had deep fried wings and they had obviously been already cooked and then cooled. They must have been reheated in the microwave as some of them were cold on the inside although were still cooked. The dessert list was limited

Went here with friends and we had a great time...Service was a bit slow however they were packed and the food was worth the wait. Isn't that why you go to a Restaurant is the food. We supplied our own entertainment. A fun-filled environment.
