Great place for nice casual dining. Interesting menu. Always good portions and food always great. Fish and chips excellent. Because it is good food, place is always busy so you may have to wait a little.

I wouldn't consider this a "healthy" Restaurant but more like comfort food. Google and check out the Menu online to get an idea. There's quite a variety of food. Salads are great too. Enjoy!
