Visited here with a few friends for a few hours on a Saturday arvo, the food was good and the staff friendl, they had someone on a guitar who sang quite well too the only downside was the price of the drinks! they charge nightclub prices in the afternoon!

I came here with the intention of trying it out before a 21st. I am new to Brisbane and didn't realise what an awful place I had come to! The staff, particularly a girl with blond hair and black glasses, were very rude! She swore at me and told the other staff not to let me charge my phone which... More

Best chicken parmy here, and a good price as well. location is average as there are a few seedy characters that get in and out of the place so not sure if you want to bring the rellies here for a nice gathering but for a quick cheap and great pub feed this place is the go.

I'll regularly stop by here on a Sunday morning after work and breakfast for a quick beer before I head home, the beers always cold and the staff are always friendly. They have a large outdoor area where you can sit and enjoy a drink and a smoke and look out at the weird and wonderful sights of Fortitude Valley.... More

We stopped off for a drink early evening on the way back to the Hotel. It was a Wednesday and they had their $6.00 steak offer on. Thinking "oh dear, how good can a $6 steak be?" we decided to risk it. You are right. It wasn't Cordon Blue but... it was a reasonable size. it was medium rare, we... More

RGs is good for a quick drink during the day, and is still fairly competitive for drink prices compared to other Valley watering holes. It gets super seedy at night though.

The live music was great, but unfortunately they packed up not long after we arrived. The best location is out the front on Brunswick Mall to people watch over a few drinks. The house red and white are best avoided, but for only $1 more, you get something decent.
