If you like big portions of food then this is the place for you!. The food is American diner style themed and is very generous in there chip portions!. However I found the food quite expensive for essentially burgers and chips and so I wouldn't return just based on that.

I ordered the cheeseburger and it was very dry and tasteless and the bun was so thin it had fallen apart with some sort of oil... the cheese on the burger was almost like rubber.... More

Pros: good service, great atmosphere as very packed, food tasty Cons: tatty restaurant and loos, far too much food (perhaps great for some people but many left food on their plate). Noticed some reviews said a little expensive. If they cut down on portion sizes then they could reduce prices considerably. Or why not offer a small or large portion... More

I have been going to this restaurant since I was about 10 years old. I'm 32 now. Yyou may remember it being called 'Zaks'. In all of those years I have found 2 hairs in my food, and that was the same night! I never feel let down by the food or the portions. However, those prices are starting to... More

Went here for a birthday meal, we were given a table in front of the front door.. which ruined everything right at the beginning. It was freezing with people walking in and out and at one point one of my friends couldn't sit down at the table once going to the loo due to the amount of people queuing behind... More

Had a late dinner here last night. Managed to phone up at 7pm and book a table for 9pm at this popular Great Yarmouth American style eatery. - it was surprising as we know it's a popular place. Centrally location and a hidden gem in many ways. We were taken into the bar on the right hand side as you... More
