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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Excellent spot for a pre or post dinner drink. We came here and had some glasses of local wine after we'd been on the Million dollar cruise (also excellent). Great outlook.

Fantastic place for a pre dinner drink. We went on a wednesday evening in brilliant sunshine. Nice and shady up on the top deck. Staff exceptionally friendly and helpful. Can only recommend it as a stop in Queenstown.

Perky’s is a cool place to go for a drink because it’s outdoors, but you are docked in downtown Queenstown. The staff are very friendly. You can choose to sit inside or on one of the decks. We grabbed a beer during the week, however...peak time seems to be on Friday. It’s a nice venue for people watching.More

An interesting concept. A bar on a boat that (obviously) sells drinks but you can bring your own food. The cocktails are great and the same price (or cheaper) than everywhere else in Queenstown. We went for a drink and sent the slightly younger family...member off to Fat Badgers to bring us back a massive pizza that was the envy of the other diners/drinkers. Perky's is definately a winner for us.More

Bring your takeaway and enjoy dinner with a drink and an amazing view on the lake. We brought our Fergburger takeaway over, got a beer and a wine and enjoyed a fabulous dinner at dusk. Servers very friendly, great concept with so many takeaway options!

What a unusual and unique little bar, I mean boat, no bar, no both. Moored at the dock you walk on and enjoy yourself. BYO food which some people had their Fergburgers. We had completed a local beer tour with local guy Lewis. Make sure...you jump onto his site and book, and so back at the wharf walked on board for a non beer tipple, for me anyway. The 3 of us stood on the bow of the boat with our drinks and were kept company with 2 young ladies from Canada. Great view onto the lake watching the Earnslaw return, para sailing, the shark submersibles and the jet boats coming and going. Very good place to stop in for a few before moving further on.More

Popped on for a pint of a sunny afternoon. To watch the world go by. They had the heaters on so it was perfect in the autumn afternoon. Definitely worth a visit.
