But today was a big huge disappointment. Very dry buns. Tasted old and stale almost. The fish... Was such a small piece. And stone cold.... More

Arrived here at 7pm on Friday night to be told that the less than half-full restaurant wasn't seating any more guests due to staff shortages. Despite some misgivings, we then attempted to order from the bar but were told that the full menu wasn't available in the bar. At this point my family of 5 decided to cut our losses... More

Being a gorgeous sunny day we thought we would drive on out to Yorkeys Knob for lunch instead of the usual spots in the city. It was a pretty warm day and my husband was wearing a normal singlet style shirt, however on arrival we were informed that no singlets for men were allowed and they offered him a 'borrowed'... More

Great location but let down by the terrible food. We went there on a Friday for lunch and it was very quiet, I had Vegetarian Nachos and it was basically some nachos dumped on a plate with some unheated kidney beans straight from the can and then on top of that cheese that had been just melted under the grill...

When we arrived at 4pm the waitress at the counter said that there were no oysters left despite the advertisement stating that they were available till late. We did ask them whether they did take away for oysters so that may be why the waitress was not willing to sell them but there is no indication on their advertisement and... More

The food is excellent. And it's in an excellent location. They have a free shuttle bus to pick you up and return you to your local hotel or home.
