    I would never usually order steak but the steak there is fantastic! I took my mum for Mother's Day and she received a free glass of proscecco which she thought was a lovely touch. Overall great experience

    We were looking forward to a nice family meal, after a hard weeks work. Nice table and pleasant waitress.
    Unfortunately, at this point everything went downhill. One of my sons had ordered pasta from the children's menu which looked like it had been re-heated. Most of the meat balls were hard and crispy and the sauce had congealed on the plate. My other sons burger was embarrassing. Reheated again, too small for the bun. I had ordered a T-Bone cooked medium, which came out well cooked.
    We sent the steak and burger back and requested another. My steak came out first. Still not right, overcooked, but this time the cut was very fatty and I struggled to cut through it. I had given up at this point!
    I asked the waitress to get me the bill as we would be leaving. The manager Calum came over to me with the bill and apologised. I couldn't believe that they still intended on charging me. Nevertheless after pointing out that there were charges still on the bill that we hadn't received, I paid and left.
    I've worked in the service industry on and off for the last 25 years, If I was in the situation Calum was in, I would have tried to diffuse the situation and not charge the customer anything.
    Poor service, terrible food and poor management. Avoid at all costs and go to another restaurant on the Boardwalk.

    Pleasant atmosphere. Good food as we ordered. Pleasant waitress. Service with a smile
    Only gripe was the length of time we waited for drinks

    Not happy actually! I wanted the the battered sole for my main dish and after sitting deciding on what to have, upon ordering I get told that there is no more sole!! When being shown to out seats, the member of staff should have said at that time what was off the menu, not waiting until I had spent ages choosing to tell me!
    Also, I booked the table because it was my boyfriend's 50th birthday and miller and carter said they would come out with a candle in a sweet dish to wish him a happy birthday - nothing happened - nobody acknowledged his birthday and nothing came out with the staff to saying happy birthday.
    Also, the environment was too hot - I asked for the temperature to be turned down which may have happened, but after half an hour it seemed to get hot again.
    Overall - not a good experience :-(

    Food lovely, my son said that his burger was best he had ever had! Could have been more Menu choices or maybe some specials. Service friendly, but a bit slow, we got our starter before any drinks.
    Overall a very pleasant and comfortable place to eat with good Food and view of lake.
