Worst steak Ive ever had. Worse than my mothers cooking. Worse than the crumbed roadkill at the woodenbong hotel. Staff service all great. Sigh

Amazing place. From the time we were greeted to the time we left we were looked after. Great friendly service, awesome food and great environment. Food came out in good time after ordering and almost all at once. Since there was about 20 of us...the kitchen and wait staff did an amazing job. Will certainly return.More

Had the feeling we had too many....birthdays, service was short rude and totally unfriendly at the bar. We the mature set have money, wrote and made the music you play in the bar. Grow up smile and give service that we all love. Owners give...the bar staff a injection of personality, so poor.More

We were very disappointed in our visit on sunday 25th april. Stopped in for a couple of drinks on the "sunday session " as advertised out front of bar $ 6 beers and wines . We had 2 drinks each and some sweet potato fries...$58.50 ...then the girl said i forgot to add surcharge that will b $62.50. I questioned the bill and she stated public holiday. I stated that they had advertised dfifferent. She said no so i took her to the front of entry where clearly states $6 drinks with no mention that this offer didnt apply on the day visited. I dont mind paying surcharge...but this was False advertising and a rip off. I will be thinking very carefully before visiting again .More

Average food, slow service. I ordered squid which had more garnish than squid. The staff was really busy with their dinner service and drinks took a while to come out.

Last minute find when we found out our resort restaurant was closed after spending an hour at the bar waiting for it to open. We took an uber over to element bar in search of a good feed, cocktails for the missus and some good...beer. The bar immediately oozed with a fantastic atmosphere from the moment we walked in. The cocktail list was fantastic and the cocktails themselves lived up every bit to expectations. The beer selection was more than I could ever ask for with amazing hazy ales, IPA's, nitro stout, just to name a few. Dinner was next level with Southern fried chicken, jalapeno fries, burgers, amazing sauces to go with... it was all amazing. Will definitely go back and recommend to everyone.More

I’ve been here multiple times with work colleagues and have found it to be a fantastic place for the atmosphere, food and drinks. Definitely try the ghost pepper chicken wings and the pork belly burger yummy. They are COVID safe with the menu online and...having to check in. Will definitely be back again soonMore

Providing an online menu caters for no one, scrolling online to look at a big menu doesn’t feel right and I feel it represents the restaurant/bar horribly. When people walk past, all you see is people on the phone looking at a menu. It shows...no vibe of the place when everyone is looking down at their phones. It’s a small change but otherwise great staff and beer selection, good diverse menu. CheersMore
