Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great food, great live music. Husband had the prawn and chorizo papperdelle egg pasta and I had the crispy pork belly with spiced plum sauce. Both dishes were a stand-out.

Enjoyable night with the family and fun atmosphere with live music. The staff were very friendly. I had booked inside but when we got there it was a lovely night and wanted to be outside. They moved tables around to accommodate us even though quite...a busy night for them. We had some nice entrees to start - halloumi, calamari and delicious chicken wings. Then some pizzas to share for the table which were great. My daughter wanted an iced chocolate and the bar staff went out of there way to make this for her even though not on the menu. Great service. Thanks.More

Cannot fault the food or service at this restaurant however I would avoid going on a Friday/ weekend in future. The pizzas are the best and the main meals are also flavourful. We went on a Monday and the food was delicious ( as usual)...and the service was timely, attentive and friendly. End of the week was much busier and everyone was very stressed. Seemed like only one wait staff was taking orders while 2/3 others were on drinks or clearing tables. Looked like only 2 in the kitchen. Meals took 45+mins to arrive and some items didn’t arrive at all. Table nearby left without ordering. Shame we had this one experience but will definitely go back or get takeaway as the food is too good to pass up.More

I read the good reviews and decided to try!! We were on vacation in Agnes Water. My hubby ordered the pork belly -it was hard and overcooked! Taste was not great. I ordered the salmon which again was overcooked and dry! Prices are high and...food doesn’t worth it!More

Wow!! This place is so chill and relaxed, looks like it will be a regular pub feed, but prepare to be pleasantly surprised. Food was top notch, I'll say the steak was the best I've had in a very long time. It was priced at...the top end of the scale, but well and truly worth it! Service, cocktails and all other food was amazing. They were also very kid friendly which is a big bonus. Music and general ambiance was spot on, and not too loud. Tables are a great size and stable with plenty of room all around. Toilets were clean and presentable with all necessary amenities...all in all, we were so happy we ate there out of all the options around town.More

We ordered our meal, and waited; then waited some more watching people who had come in 20 minutes later than us received their orders before us. We finally got the attention of a waiter who told us our order would be up next; and then...we continued to watch others who had come in in later get there food, another customer becoming irate at a waiter when they had already been waiting 45 minutes and was clearly getting annoyed watching other patrons getting there food before them. Then after just over an hour; the food came. Other than the annoyance of waiting a ridiculous amount of time, the food was very good (with the exception of ordering medium rare and getting medium). If you have time to kill and don’t mind waiting an hour for your food and the waiting staff being notably absence for drink refills, then this is the place to come.More

Booked early in the day and glad we did as it was busy being a Friday night during school holidays. Beautiful specials and menu was great to chose from. Not sold on the frozen veges in the kids meals, probably best served on a plate...instead of a bowl and maybe something more appetising to kids rather peas and corn. Everything else great, friendly staff and great serviceMore
