Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This used to be the best place in town for their fish and chips. Change of ownership or whatever the Menu is terrible now and the place needs a clean up.

Been a long time so once I’ve been here. Met some friends to watch an AFL game. We were front and center of the big screen which was great. Stacks of tables and chairs for everyone. It’s recently changed to the “Varsity” brand. Seems the...food is Varsity but the beer selection is still very basic. A few more craftys on tap would be great. Staff were bloody brilliant, efficient and friendly. Burgers were great and everyone was happy with their dinner. Only downside was the Jalapeño Poppers. At 3 for $15 they’re crazy overpriced. Had them I’m Margs a few days ago. 9 for $15. There’s now another function area which had Rugby on the screen, as well as the usual smokers garden, public bar and TAB. Overall I really enjoyed it and will be back to see one of the cover bands they often advertise.More

Had the excellent fish and chips again and was pleased to see everything clean and tidy. Great staff and much better than it was back in September . Only thing I would comment on was that when we were there with grandchildren etc they saw...the frozen slushy machine and wanted one, only to be told they only do them with alcohol in them. Maybe the management could do one for kids as well.More

New staff which was a worry until we tried the Fish and Chips again. YES...STILL GREAT .. so glad as thats why we come here. One thing has not changed. STILL STICKY TABLES...

we had great meal of fish and chips at this very relaxing venue. Shame the cleaning is too relaxed as well. Sticky surfaces spoil this place as the food is good and so are the staff.

since our last trip, the management read our review. The Fish and Chips was GREAT again and a generous serve of tartar sauce which I think was HOME MADE . The cleaning was MUCH MUCH better in all public areas of the back bar. Good...to see young families with young kids who must also be pleased with the cleaning. With big portions this place is a winnerMore

This is a nice quiet tavern which is positioned in front of whitfords shopping centre.  I think a lot of people bypass this for the brewery alongside the shops but this is a great spot.  On this occasion we had a moderately priced meal which...was a large serving.  I had the steak burger and chips but I especially enjoyed the buffalo wings and cheese dip. Hmmmm scrupulous. Beers were also well priced.More

We have not been here for a few months as our last visit was a 2 out of 10 for food. A new chef is here now and the portion size was very good and the taste was excellent. Unfortunately the Manager needs to check...the cleaning as we were in the rear bar which is casual like Bali but the floor was sticky as was the table so we moved to the carpeted area which also had a sticky table. On visiting the toilet I found the door was sticky as well so I can only hope the kitchen is not as bad as the bar area. This is a great venue so we will try again but the food and staff were greatMore

Support a local and give Northshore Tav a go. The menu is solid and all key food types are done well. There's always a good special and I'd highly recommend curry night. For $13 you get a large serve of curry and rice with Nana...bread and papadam. Flavours were good with lots of meat in either the vindaloo or butter chicken. Presentation was good for a curry with fresh chilli for the vindaloo and natural yoghurt. The restaurant is well presented with a beach theme and you can always get a seat. The restaurant is also family friendly and customer service is good. Keep up the good work Northshore.More

It’s probably been over a year since our last visit, the decor is the same, a large room with a beach feel. We had the butter chicken and the steak sandwich which were both super tasty and substantial.
