As locals, when we eat out, which is regularly, quite often we end up at Mangrove Jacks when we can't decide. Sometimes there is a wait for a table and we have been told over the past few years that you can't book. The last time we went, however, we noticed a lot of reserved signs on tables. ????!!! They...

If you dont want to wait a while you should maybe try somewhere else. We arrived around 7.30 to be told that the waiting time for a meal would be 45 minutes. Every night we passed it was busy later in the evening, suggest to go before 6pm if you want a quick meal. We had the small pizzas which... More

Friendly staff. We went on a very busy evening. Unfortunately chef muddled my gf base and we had to have it cooked fresh. Well worth the wait in the end. A terrific pizza. Special thanks to Krystal for going the extra mile to sort out my order and for the credit voucher for another meal. Five star service and food.

My husband and I had a evening meal here while on holiday, we walked in off the street. While my husband was at the counter ordering a group of six young men came in for a meal and were told it would be 45 minute wait for meals, the fellas turned around & walked out. Our meals came after 35... More

I think I had the BEST Pizza I have ever eaten at this place, and I mean EVER eaten including those I have eaten overseas. It was very tasty, plenty of topping and flavored perfectly. If I owned that place, I'd double that guys wages as most there were raving about the Pizza. Staff in general were very friendly and... More

Having to follow a diet determined by my irritable digestive system, eating out for me means no onion or bread/dough foods which makes it difficult to order a lot of the time. The staff were fantastic and were more than accommodating. I had the chicken and brie pizza (without onion and without a base) and it was amazing! If you... More

The chicken parma I had was very moist and delicious. My husband had the calamari and chips and was very pleased with his meal as well. After trying mine he said, "If I knew all chicken parmas were going to be as tender as that one I would eat them when we go out more often."

It looks like a Restaurant, it feels like a Restaurant, priced like a Restaurant but quality is more Pub style. The menu has good variety, featuring wood fire options. The pizza was excellent, I had wood fire prawns, they were dry but tasty, my partner had steak which was huge but low quality & a bit tough. Service was great... More

This place was pretty good. A couple veggie options, but just the usual. Service- fast, go up and order system, the duty manager wasn't super friendly but the rest of the staff seemed pretty good. Food- a bit of variety, my partner got the pull the other one pizza but the scollops was mostly roe so she didn't really enjoy... More
