After waiting 45 minutes for a simple lunch order of two burgers, and watching others around us be served food even after ordering after us, we enquired at the counter to be met with rude, disaffected staff who didn't care that they had 'lost our order'. the rudeness of the waitress shocked us, as it was their fault the order...

Went out on a GrabOne voucher. First impressions very busy little bar/restaurant. Greeted extremely well, we were seated then order 10mins later. 40mins later our entrée and mains come out- not impressed and then our Steak is Blue not M/R as requested. We we're already upset that our mains were with entrée. Sent our steak back to the chef to... More

Great spot for a beer or coffee. Very Comfortable lounges and locally brewed beer is their speciality. Worth a visit.

Stopped for a salad & beer for lunch. Had calamari salad which contained a sea of lettuce & little else! 3-4 pieces of calamari & 2-3 cherry tomatoes- poor value for $21 - look elsewhere you'll find better value.

Four of us visited this establishment as part of their Grab One Promotion. A number of dishes on the menu were not available. We ordered 4 entrees and 4 mains. Our mains arrived first. Not wanting to create a fuss, we agreed to reverse our order of eating. Two of the steak meals were not cooked to requirements, one was... More

We really wanted to stop inside because we're librarians and saw the books in the windows. Stayed to try a couple of the Mac's flavoured ciders. The bar staff seemed annoyed to help us and it seemed a little over priced, but a cool looking place.

Visited here for dinner tonight and got turned away by a guy in slacks because "you aren't allowed in after 9pm with kids" Won't be returning here again. The LCQ laws are pretty clear and obviously we weren't going to give the kids any booze though legally we are able to.

Visited here before the Michael McIntyre comedy gig at Vector, was absolutely packed out, luckily another couple allowed us to share their outdoor bar leaner. My wife had the chicken burger and I had fish & chips. Both meals were delicious, good portion sizings and considering how busy they were we got our food in under 30 mins which was... More

The location is great but everything else is terrible. The drinks were expensive - $17 for a mojito cocktail that was 90% ice. The meals took FOREVER to come and when they eventually came they were cold, like they had been sitting under an ineffective heat lamp for ages. Service was dreadful. I ordered chicken with my salad (which was... More
