Not bad

They should have told me that my order was for a group. How could I eat 24 sausages and the ambience a little too young and sporty

The new owners of Broomers have completely revamped the restaurant and transformed it into a beautiful, classy establishment with a great menu, fantastic services and pleasant vibe. Well done, we loved our meal. From Hibiscus Coast Seconds Team

Great food at a reasonable price. Friendly and accommodating staff attended to us even though we did not have a booking. We also loved Papa & mama James live entertainment. Will see you again before we leave.

We stopped by for a quick lunch and we were very disappointed.I will say that the service was very friendly however.I ordered a tuna sandwich described as "chunks of tuna with cream cheese, fresh spring onion and chili sauce on Brown bread".

Our group of 5 went here one night during our stay in Southbroom recently. We were persuaded by the reviews on TA but were very disappointed. A giant bar dominates the inside of the restaurant - so we thought it obvious that cocktails would be available, we asked for the cocktail menu but were brought the food menu. When we... More

We were a group of 8 (4 adults and 4 kids) and we were suitably surprised at what an awesome little restaurant this is. Prices are extremely reasonable and the food was outstanding and plentiful. Service was terrific and they accommodated us without a booking even on a busy night. Hands on family run and extremely friendly. Will defiantly return!... More

Have been here twice in the last two weeks and have found the food great. Very nicely presented, reasonable and in a pleasant environment. Fish is very good and can be deep fried or grilled.

OK, when you don't expect much. Excellent calamaris. Young staff, mostly locals... Good, if you just want to hang out a little bit
