Great Location , bland over priced food , restaurant is run similar to an RSL Club , no table service , you have to get your own utensils & queue up at the bar for drinks. Most disappointing , Bar Staff are friendly - requires new management , unfortunately with little competition the business gets away with poor outdated service.

Dined here on Easter Sunday with friends. Went to the bar during happy hour and was rudely told that due to licensing rules I could only buy two drinks, what a load of rubbish. I was trying to buy 4 glasses of wine. I was totally sober, hadn't even had a drink that day and trying to buy 2 wines... More

A very nice setting close to Bennets Beach in Hawks Nest. It has very good range of dishes on the menu. Their pizzas are great. Prices are quite reasonable and it is good for kids also.

Several choices so opt for Pizza, good value, not too long to wait for the food to arrive given that it was a large group.

We went twice during and after happy hour. Drinks and delicious dinner were great value with a solo artist thrown in both nights. Would go back anytime.

We visited during our stay and were here for happy hour and dinner. The staff could be a little bit friendlier, felt like I was interrupting their socialising a little. Food was ok but not great for the price charged. Also went to get takeaway coffee the next morning and was told at 10:30am that they could not serve me... More

Ordered a pizza, it came out not described as on menu so sent it back. Next day tried again and there was a storm so couldn't order food as the tills were not working so it couldn't communicate with the kitchen! What's wrong with a pen and piece of paper?? Funnily enough they could still take your money for beer!... More

Have been going to Hawks Nest all my life and often visited the old HN lodge, but this place was nothing like the old. A good choice of beers and wines and good pub level food. The coffee was not as good, the flat white I ordered on my first visit was average at best and the iced coffee on... More
