Fantastic ribs, best you will have on the Gold Coast. Friendly service and very busy. You have to book. We had visitors and they requested to go back there, before they left. Nice birthday venue as well.

Been coming here for years with friends and family and never been unhappy at all with this Resturant. Lots to choose from on the menu and good variety of foods and Drinks. Great Service, Good Atmosphere. Can be a little pricey but I guess no more than any other place.

Thank Lee W
