We have been several times and the location is great besides the river. Staff are friendly but could be more attentive to the customers as service leaves something to be desired. Most of the food tasty and fresh. The nacho needs to improve. Good place for sunset.

As a group of 6 dinning out for breakfast for a friends 50th we were very disappointed, coffee was Luke warm when we requested extra hot, then we waited for 45 minutes for our breakfast to be served. There was approximately 20 people including us, most of them were served before us. When breakfast finally did come (Good Hunter Breakfast) it was stone cold, bacon, mushrooms, beans, eggs, sour dough bread, hash brown, chipotle and tomato, all cold. We complained about the food and was greeted with a "I will let the chef know, sorry". Not acceptable which is unfortunate as we have had many a great night there. We gave them a second chance after a disappointing date night a few months ago, there won't be a third chance

What a great little spot! I had a plate of fish tacos and a few beers here and it is a top spot. Very quiet on the night I visited but the pale ale on tap was great and the fish tacos took me back to California. The filling was spot on. A little chilli, some guauc and fish chunks and lime was the perfect blend. My only complaint was they could have heated the flat corn tacos up a bit more. The lady who served me was great and I will be back. Mackay rocks!!! I would recommend a getting there a little before sunset and sitting on the deck, what a magic place to watch the sun go down.
