Went for quick lunch on a Sunday. Prices are very good, quality far ahead and the portions massive. Had the platter worth chilli poppers, seriously strong. Local craft beers at special prices. Rustic setting, enjoyable experience.

We always wanted to try this! The ribs and wings were very tasty. The onion rings taste and fries tasted like fried hake though. Great meal!

Sticky Fingers in Observatory does good ribs with tasty extras like jalapeno poppers, chips and onion rings. It’s quick, well-priced and they have regular specials to look after your wallet. Worth trying.

If you are looking for ribs that fall off the bone, juicy chicken, tasty pork sausage and chilli poppers that leave a tingle on the tongue than this is the spot with unintrusive service.
