We went a casual customers the first nigh and it was so good we went back the next. Beware, the helpings are enormous as well as delicious but in any case leave some room for the home made gelato. Jac and his staff can't do...enough to help. Pleasant surroundings with very efficient service. We enjoyed the welcome and friendliness throughout both meals. When in Exmouth certainly stop at least once for something to eat.More

First night fantastic, service and food awesome. Second visit asked politely if a table was available outside and the waitress was rude and abrupt and said no.Watched other customers ask the same and she gave a much different response? WTF? Every other waitress was great...and spoke with our 3 kids. The woman I refer to needs to leave hospitality or risk copping a mouthful next time.More

Tasty food with massive portions. Price point good. Food magically on table within 5 minutes which can be worrying. Go if you want to carb load

A busy restaurant, but well organised. Didn’t realise we had to book because it’s so popular, but they arranged a table for us within 30 minutes. Food was lovely and came out fast. Really liked the seafood pasta in a tomato sauce. Beware the chillies......they were a tasty addition to the sauce. Hubby had the brisket and the BBQ sauce was yummy.More

Went 3 years ago and couldn’t wait to get back, it was sooo good. Bitterly disappointed. Arrived and the restaurant was empty. They “squeezed” us in at 5pm by giving us the last table, out the front, next to a noisy airond unit. We stayed...until after 8pm, not one table inside got taken. Their BBQ sauce was great, but the meat was dry and horrible, chips were barely edible. An old clapped out chair broke from under another customer and he smashed his head on a pole while we were there.More

My husband and I went to bbq Father two nights in a row we loved it so much! The portions are very generous and you can’t beat the quality for the price!!!! The atmosphere is casual and beachy. We ordered the delicious Texana & Mexicana...pizzas and side salads!!! The Texana was our favorite with the smoked beef brisket! It was truly the best pizza we’ve ever had, and we’ve travelled the world! Also, the gelato was amazing!!! The staff was super friendly! I can’t recommend this place enough! A must if you’re staying in Exmouth!More

It’s not difficult to find an exceptional meal while in Exmouth. Got recommended this place by a friend and they were 100% right. Smoked meats were cooked to perfection and pizza was made in a proper pizza oven. All dishes were more than decent sized...(even the entrees were huge) and evening was topped with homemade gelato made by the owner. Service was friendly and the ladies working there were all really nice. Make sure to book in early as apparently they sometimes run out of the smoked meats - can definitely see a reason for that.More
