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.

Hi Berri. So happy you loved our place. We have purposly kept away from doing the QR code/Tablet ordering so that our wonderful staff can look after you personally. Thanks for the kind words.

This little burger bar is in a great location opposite Kirra Beach. It’s a short stroll from our accommodation so we opted for takeaway and so glad we did. Staff were friendly and attentive and offered us a seat while we waited for our order....We enjoyed classic cheeseburger and beef brisket burger. Both were outstanding - perfectly cooked, tasty and generous. We ordered sides thinking they would be small. Don’t be fooled, there is enough for 2 to 3 people to share. We loved their mozzarella sticks and onion rings, just perfectly cooked but couldn’t eat it all. Simple flavours, in a simple meal done really, really well. Highly recommend for a casual dinner.More

Great food, service and location. I can't go past the barra cakes but my more adventurous friends have never been disappointed. I particularly enjoy Happy Hour - actually 2 hours - sitting in the winter sun with beach views, great food and cocktails, and friendly...service from Brendan and staff is always a delight.More

Visited on the 10th of Feb with my friends and family. We were having casual drinks and the girl behind the bar was super rude to all of us for trying to order at the bar. She also was rude at the toilets when she...seen others waiting in line. I never complain, however, this girl should not be in hospitality. Ruined our experience and we left. We are locals and definitely will not support rude bar staff. After speaking to others , we were told she is often like that to customers. It's not okay.More

Saint Helens is by far one of my fave local hangouts! Jess (the amazing American chef/owner) makes everything from scratch so you’re guaranteed fresh food that’s full of flavour…my personal fave is the Bug Burger and jalapeño poppers but everything is bomb in my opinion!...🍔🤤😋 While you’re there make sure you get Brendan (the equally amazing FOH/owner) to whip you up a cocktail or two or perhaps make it down for happy hour because let’s face it everyone is happier when there’s an hour dedicated to being happy!! 🍸😄 All in all St Helens has friendly staff, amazing food, great drinks, and a view to die for!! 🙌🙌🙌More
