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.

Excellent wings and good ribs. Ribs were well cooked with nice bbq sauce. I prefer them falling off the bone but these were close. Honey soy wings were awesome. Would definately return.

The manager organised a last minute table for 17 during school holidays which was awesome. The food was delicious, our group loved the ribs and the wings.

Close to where we are staying so it was an easy choice. My wife and I had seniors, chicken for wife and salt and pepper calamari for me. Both meals were huge, what I would normally get on the Central Coast as a full meal....The salad was wonderful and good hot chips. Definitely coming back to try their ribs.More
