Went here 30 Nov for lunch. We both ordered the chicken burger. Disgusting prepared chicken 'thing' was burnt and soaked in oil. The chips which we paid extra for were crackle cut frozen chips. Just as disgusting as the burger. Price at $13 for the disgusting burger is outrageous. We'll never go back

We are from Melbourne and were driving past and thought we would stop for fish n chips, boy did we get a surprise when we walked in! The place was so cool!!! Great decor, cool graffiti on the walls - it reminded me of a 1970's diner. The chips were great but I only rated this place a 4 because... More

Happened to stay over in the pub style accommodation that is with a shared bathroom. All very clean. The bistro menu was varied. I settled for the Aussie pizza which was filling and delicious. Great beer and wine list.

The food and service here is absolutely amazing. The chips are up there with the best I've ever had and the lovely sauce that accompanies the chips....YUM!

Awesome burgers well worth the 2 hour trip from Warrnambool.Would love too try the main burger one day as the Barstard Burger i well worth the prive you pay. The rest of the menu is well worth the money and not over priced.

Went there recently and the meal we got was outstanding. It's not often you go to a restaurant and get more food then you expect. The burger was huge and the wife's atomic fries was bigger then the burger. Definitely 5 stars.

Not only is the food incredibly tasty - the atmosphere casual and fun but the service is absolutely incomparable! I'm a regular here, we are talking more than once a week when I can - and there is such a wide range for everybody on... More

Got there on a busy day, but the wait was worth it! It's not a place to go if you want fine dining, it's noisy and simple, but the food is worth it. The prices are extremely good for the taste and the servings? BIG. I was going to order my own dish, but when I saw the size of... More
