I visited this restaurant twice in the same week, the first time I ordered salmon, it was nicely cooked served on bed of mash surrounded by frozen green beans, nothing spectacular. On the next visit I ordered the sizzling combo, it was piled high and as described "sizzling". It was just a dish of peppers and onions, it was nearly... More

Had the chicken Sizzler that was on the menu. Very well cooked and presented. The bar was clean. The staff were also very accommodating and friendly. My friends had the Cajun chicken burger which look and tasted delicious. I would recommend this restaurant.

Visited today for lunch. Good choice on menu and great kids menu not just the usual chips and sausages or goujons. The Children had chicken with mash, veg and gravy and their only complaint was that they had too much. It was very tasty. I originally ordered a Cajun burger and the waitress informed me it would take minimum 20... More

The food is great and there is s wide selection to suit all tastes. The service is always very quick and professional and the staff are very pleasant and helpful. The bar is also very lively and entertaining on the weekends and one of the town's best.

Looked at the reviews & gave it a shot. Wow! One, (actually two), of the best meals we've had in Ireland. The 16 oz ribeye special was a bigger steak than anything we've seen in the UK. The spicy shrimp pasta was incredible and should definitely be tried. Got a table easily on Fri evening but Sat was packed. We... More
