We had been out for dinner the night before and were going for dinner again tonight so decided to have a lighter lunch. Howling Jays is new, some thought that we would give it a try. It tasted OK, but I thought it was expensive. It ended up costing us $59.00 for lunch and a drink each for 2.

Enjoyed the decor and fried chicken. The service was friendly and first class but the prices are a bit extreme for what it is.
Still nice for a treat

Chicken was great. But 3 for 12 bucks?? And only 1 piece of "white bread" with no butter to put on if you like . But a pretty poor menu. Staff are really nice. Thanks to the chief for good cooked chicken

We had a chicken burger each. Very good quality for the PRICE! $16 hell yeah. I feel like it was missing something tho. I know a lot of places that have this exact same chicken burger, maybe add... it needs some crunch! (Crunchy lettuce?) But not like most burgers, this one stayed fully intact when I ate it!
Service was excellent
Awesome chicken
Will be back

Staff were really friendly and helpful- actually seemed like they were happy to be there. TBH some of the better customer service I've experienced in Cairns.
Food was damn tasty, the menu hasn't been over complicated, it works well for this style of dining. Beverage options were also great- whilst the steins might appear expensive, but I barely finished one over 1.5hrs I was there!
Cushions on the outdoor lounge chairs might be advisable. Decor was trendy and kitschy- overall nice ambience.
