Went along one busy Thursday night service fantastic, seafood chowder, fish, steak and pork ribs were all lovely, highly reccomend. The only down side is it's a very noisy place and hard to have a conversation

Had ribeye steaks for lunch here. The portions were very big, mainly because there were a lot of fried potatoes. Some vegetables came along, too. We ordered medium-plus steaks, which was a mistake, because they ended up being overcooked and consequently tough and chewy. One of the steaks had a lot of sinews. The beers were good, though.

This place has a great atmosphere for dining. We were lucky to get in without reservation at 1800. Service is very good with lots of staff buzzing about. Great choice of beer and large menu choice. Speaking of large..the portions are on the big side,so beware

The food here was very poor. I had the rump steak and requested it was cooked medium, it arrived rare and was very grisely. My wife ordered chicken breast, what she got was small pieces of chicken in a small pot, not what was expected. Definitely wouldn't eat there again.

While our guide was entertaining, we were a little surprised at the cost $29 each for this tour. We almost thought it might be better to spend that amount at the pub. Good history though of the local icon. A good rainy day thing to do here. Wish the beer could be more than 4%. Proud of the amazing sustainability... More
