Quirky restaurant- nice to have the door opened for you on arrival. Good service by the waiters and waitresses. The food was nice but it was no better than a typical pub lunch, which would have been quite a bit cheaper. For this reason I wouldn't choose to go back.

My daughter and her partner took me for my birthday I had lovely ribs in fact we all did. They were delicious. There was lots to eat and we all struggles to eat it all.

Food was fine and plentiful and the ribs just fell off the bone. The restaurant appealed to all ages and looks to be a place you could easily come for a group meal. Staff very pleasant and attentive - they are obviously very hot on customer service! Nice touch was warm bread rolls, but the 'wine' menu could do with... More

Been to all the Damons countless times over the years but it's lost its sparkle. The staff are miserable and board of serving what is now mediocre food with crap chips and the proverbial slaw or peas. Well overdue for a serious facelift. Please make it great again.

This is a staple dining venue for Lincoln. It has lost its way somewhat keeping up with the new ways of eating but it is always just what you expect, nothing more , nothing less. Good hearty breakfast, flowing coffee, and friendly if inexperienced waiting staff.

6 of the family attended for a Birthday tea, we pre booked our table so arrived early and was seated at our booth table straight away. Happy smiling waitresses quickly fetched our drinks and bread rolls. We ordered various main courses, ribs, steaks etc. All dishes arrived at the same time, were well presented and freshly cooked. The BBQ ribs... More

I've been here a handful of times now, and each one of my experiences have been different. However the latest visit I was super impressed. I'm not usually one to order ribs, just because I find them awkward to eat and they tend to have very little meat to eat, however I thought I'd take my friends recommendations and go... More

Chosen this place for a dinner with my friend and her 2 kids. The kids from 12 am till 6 pm in age under 12 get the meal from junior menu for free. The restaurant has big parking space and a hotel nearby. The doorman opens you the door into big restaurant. Better to book the table in advance. Because... More
