Friendly and efficient service. We turned up 45 minutes after our booking time but this was not a problem. Ordered burger, mussels dish, open souvlaki and nachos. Everyone was happy with their food. Lamb on the open souvlaki was tender, mussel dish was tasty and...kids finished off the nachos. Tried a couple of local beers. Will be back.More

We came here for a late lunch with our Staffy as we had read about their dog-friendly area. They did not disappoint! We ordered a local cider and wine, herb and cheese bread, and mussels. The food was delicious and came out super quick. The...drinks were very nice, and the staff were friendly, to us and our dogs!More

We wanted a quick, early meal after travelling from Port Fairy. We booked prior to going as it was the busy after Christmas period. Customer service was quick and efficient and just ordered food and drinks at the respective areas. Our order of Fish and...Chips with salad arrived in a timely manner. The meal was generous in size, fresh and delicious. Not a place to linger as it was very busy and noisy as you you expect at this time of year.More

We tried twice to eat at the Brewhouse in Dec. The first time a very condescending door man told us there were no tables. We of course understood. We booked ahead the next time and as we sat down were handed menus and told they’d...need the table back in an hour. We asked if we wanted to have a few drinks more whether we could move somewhere else and he said no very rudely. You will be asked to leave. So we left without eating and went up the Apollo Bay Hotel. So much nicer!!! Better view!! Wonderful welcome at the door! They actually realise they work in “hospitality”! Also a two hour table limit and staff so lovely! Spend your money somewhere it’s wanted!More

This is the place to eat when in Apollo Bay. As we were in Apollo Bay on a Saturday night we booked a week before we arrived and I am glad we did. The atmosphere was fabulous. The food was to die for. I ordered...the Chicken Parma which had to be one if not the best chicken parmas I have had. My husband tried some of the different beers, and I enjoyed a bourbon or two. The place was well spaced out due to Covid and it was quite busy. The staff were all happy and provided great service. Great outdoor seating and also dog friendly. Put this on your must do when in Apollo Bay.More

Looking for somewhere you can have dinner and take your dog? The Brewhouse can help! The Brewhouse offers basic pub grub, plentiful and quite tasty. We had the Parma which was beautifully crumbed and cooked chicken breast, topped with ham, tomato sauce and cheese, my...only comment about this is the tomato topping tasted of dried herbs and could have been improved with cooking the sauce for a while to integrate dried herbs. Coffee wasn’t hot enough or strong enough. Service was friendly and prompt. The Brewhouse is large and able to cater for quite a few people during these COVID times. Sitting are timed to allow for two sittings.More

Wanted to do the beer and wine tasting but due to COVID not on. Sad face. Went into bistro and had nachos to share and a wine.

Dined there twice as we enjoyed the fist night so much. The meals were large and well prepared and the staff were friendly and efficient. I loved the Port Arlington mussels with Penang curry. My wife had grilled fish and vegetables and really loved the...vegetables.More
