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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Had a meal and drinks here. Overpriced and meal quality was down. Service was great on the night(Tuesday) but surprised us as other visits its seemed as the staff were not trained in hospitality. Beef Briskit was very average for $36. Drinks pricey as well.

Very disappointing.arrived at 6.30 waited until 8 for our meal. Burgers were ok. Wagu steak was tiny with a very few potatoes and no salad. Only a teaspoon of mushroom sauce. I ordered beef short ribs, was so tough I had to get my grandson...to cut it off the the bone. At least the drinks arrived promptly. Staff were pleasant. Will not go again.More

Very disappointing. They had two staff running the entire place. It wasn't overly busy but we waited over an hour for any food, as did everyone else. The food itself was okay, but the steak was overcooked and tiny. The cocktails were on tap and...basically were just jugs of alcohol with a mixer. There was very little service, and all ordering is done on a tablet.More

We waited 1h 40min for our food, other people that came later, got it before us. Kangoroo steak is maximum okay. The burger order came out wrong. Apparently because they didnt know better, but please ask if you don’t know 🙏🏽

We had visited previously about 18 months ago and had a good experience so though we would return for dinner on a spontaneous weeknight decision. Wasn't very busy, we didn't have a booking but that didn't seem to matter at all. Service was good, we...were greeted by a friendly staff member and taken to our seats promptly. We ordered a starter to share and the "tasting plate" style thing to share, and a bottle of wine. The food was 50/50, steak was cooked perfectly which was the best part about it. The chicken wings were alright, the ribs were unfortunately fairly tasteless, needed a sauce with a bit more of a kick or something, we have cooked better ones at home sadly. All up came to $160 which for the quality of food that we got, seemed a bit to expensive. Next time we will probably just visit a local pub as not worth the extra $$. Maybe time to change the menu a bit?More

The electronic menus can be challenging if one has not used one before. Why do they need to do that? A steak was done OK with a nice bit of salad and a side of roasted potatoes. A brisket plate had some very nice onion...rings, good slaw, and some salad but the brisket itself seemed like Woolies boxed brisket after being microwaved, not even baked. Dry and somewhat tough. The Woolies prepack usually comes out tender and somewhat moist. If you stop try a burger or steak. Ambiance attempts to mimic an American BBQ house; comparing the food to one is a miss. Service was attentive and helpful.More

Worst customer service experience I've ever had. The table where we seated did not have a wifi connection which meant the menu/ordering system on the tablets wouldn't work (which was annoying but not too bad). As we tried to order a drink it continually failed...with an error message so we gave up for a minute. Then our drink came! So it was all good but I told the waitress we tried to order it multiple times but we only wanted one so if there's more coming please cancel it. Then a few minutes she brought it out again. We said we didn't want it so she took it away. It seemed like no problem. A few minutes later a manager came out insisting we had to pay for it because we ordered it (and we had thought she was coming to give it to us for free and apologise!) We explained the menu system did not work and she replied that we should've gone inside to tell the waitstaff that we didn't want the extra drinks - even though we told our waitress! As we explained this, the manager said it's only her second shift so not her fault and WE needed to pay for it. The menu system not working and inexperienced staff are things we could overlook to but for the manager to have a go at us and overcharge us ruined our experience. Surely you don't behave this way to every customer that sits at the table where your wifi/menu ordering system doesn't work?! A free drink would've solved it and it turned it into a nice experience - it could've been that easy but instead the manager was so aggressive and nasty. Absolutely appalling. Unbelievably bad service - DO NOT risk going here.More

So went here with some Friends. Service from the start was rude, ordered drinks forgot a couple are you sure you ordered them? Yes they are here in the tablet you gave us. She wasn’t happy. Food came out and steaks awful steaks thin and...asked for medium was well done when complained she said this is medium and how they are. Friend had a burger said was quite cold. The best was the kangaroo that is why I gave 2 stars instead of 1. The battered fish was better than the steak and you are famous for steaks, what a joke. Never go back can make a better steak at hone and cheaper this steak cost $45 for that you expect quality.More

We thoroughly enjoyed our family dinner - which included a vegetarian who was catered for and loved her Vegalicious Burger. The pork ribs and the brisket were cooked to perfection. Our meal did not take long to arrive and was presented nicely. Thank you to...the chef Michael who did an outstanding job. The restaurant was clean and had a nice vibe, so we will be returning.More

Took my family here for lunch. We selected a variety of things from the menu and I must admit the Food was average and it arrived in dribs and drabs. We had to ask multiple times for parts of our order. It seemed like they...were under staffed and they just couldn’t keep up. Low quality food and service for the price.More
