My husband and teen kids really enjoyed the service, food and relaxed vibe at the Dockyard. The food was really delicious and we didnt have to wait long athough it was busy. In a great location near hotels it was perfect.

Six of us had lunch at The Dockyard. A variety of meals were enjoyed by all. Both the Thai salad and Pumpkin salad in particular were absolutely delicious. Staff were friendly and efficient. Drink variety where there was something for everyone. 10/10 from everyone in...our group.More

Huge thumbs up to the sexy young bartender (I think he’s name is Dylan) great service with a smile and also had a great moustache. Excellent food as well.

We had dinner here whereas we had lunch the first time. Both meals were great value and the drinks were average price.

Another place you need to book as it is popular and for good reason. Great food and super friendly staff. The undercover verandah had nice views of the harbour.

The worst hamburger I have ever tasted. Do you like chicken with your salt? Disgusting lucky the beer was cold.

Top marks for Dockyards - we had a beautiful lunch here today and were so impressed we returned for dinner which was equally as good. A lovely guy (who I assume is the owner/manager) came up and spoke to us after we finished our dinner...for a chat. Thanks for making our day in Newcastle memorable - great location, service, food and wine - 2 very happy diners !!More
