Hi Taffy. I am so happy you enjoyed your visit to St Helens. The Bug Burger has become a firm favourite with the fresh sautéed Moreton Bay Bug. Glad the kids liked it too as they are usually the toughest critics!! Hope to see you...More

Great location, across the road from the beach. Got to see a whale blow on the horizon, directly from our table. $12 selected cocktails, which were tasty, fresh and well made. Burgers are great - we had the steak burger and chicken burger. Very fresh...ingredients and quality all round. Very friendly service. Great spot to arrive mid week at 4pm on a sunny winter’s day. We’ll be back in December, the next time we holiday in the Kirra area.More

We were seated by a friendly staff outside on sunny Queensland winter day , my son and I had the cow boy steak sandwich which was good, tried...a local beer on tap and my wife the Kirra chicken burger which was not to her liking.Overall experience was good , would go back there again.More

We could not have picked a more perfect venue for our post wedding cocktail party! Brendan & Jess were so accommodating, nothing was too hard for them. They ensured all our guests were very well fed with top notch service with smiles & laughter from...all staff on deck. The cocktails were amazing and our guests all commented on the great finger food and the quality of cocktail and beers/ wines in the drinks package. Thanks St Helens for a great wedding night party! We highly recommend this venue if you are looking for a great atmosphere, easy, stress free cocktail party with fabulous food & drinks. Rachael and Anthony VaggMore

New appreciation for burgers now thanks to this Kirra venue. Cocktails were best I’ve had for a while but the burgers were incredible. Busy lol place and cool vibe on the beach. Can see why it’s so popular with the cool kids

Chicken wings sampler (3x Classic Buffalo, 3x Bourbon BBQ & 3x Maple Glazed) - the flavours were orgasmic, the chicken was cooked to perfection, simply brilliant 10/10 but at $17 per serve, certainly wasn't cheap. A better price would be $9-$12. Customer service was brilliant...too 11/10. To view my video review, simply head to my TripAdvisor profile and click on the link to my website.More
