Waited forever to be seated and then was poorly told where to order meals and drinks. No real welcome or specials explained etc. All staff seem to be here for the dollars and have no passion or interest in what they are doing. The menu reads well and is pricey so you would expect freah meals. Presentation was good. My... More

If you want a nice casual drink or a lovely hot meal then look no further ... Burleigh heads pub has everything you need until your hearts content. I recommend coming down on a Friday night where they host live acoustic music from 9pm which is full of local people and a good vibe! Sunday is also a good day... More

It was a big night in all beachside suburbs due to the fullmoon and media talking it up bringing people out in their thousands.Dinner options were limited due to crowds. The burleigh pub has always been a missed opportunity for providing culinary delights in this most iconic gold coast position. We go occassionally because its local not because its good.... More

Lovely location. Worst food. Dried out salmon and steak, no flavour and very expensive. As a local I would not recommend eating here. There are much better choices.

For a Sunday afternoon I don't think you can beat this place. It's amazing. Cheap beer prices on Sundays with entertainment is the place to be. Whilst we waited longer than expected food was satisfactory. Portion size could have been a tad bigger for the chicken parmigiana considering the cost but it tasted nice nonetheless. I will be back!

situated just across the road from the beach this is in a great location. The food was good with decent sized portions, cocktails okay but nothing special

Awesome bar right near beach but they need to train staff... one in particular...long curley dark hair... needs to learn to serve people in turn and not just her friends. Disappointing really.

Giving 4 stars for location and dry 6 dollar pint special. Would not come here to eat again, as not value for money. Although if you do the prawns looked and smelled amazing.
