Have you tired our Pork Salad yet? Here's a review we just got recently - proving you should put it on your list to try!
"Try the Pork Belly Salad
Went with a group of five - three had Pork Belly Salad, one the Lamb Salad and one Seafood Chowder. All were delicious and good sized meals. We had excellent service and the person who served our table reminded us that it was Happy Hour. Would be one of the best salads I have had for a long time".

Available all day and every evening. Remember our happy hour from 5pm-6pm daily too.👍
