Quite Good

The food was about average. The staff were very good with politeness and being helpful. The cost was about right. Would go back if in Invercargill again.

'Generous to a fault' is what they say. Absolutely! This was one of the best meals we had in our 3 week NZ trip. I had the Jack Daniels mussels and pork belly dish, which was amazing; a modern take on surf and turf. My friend had the seafood risotto. Both dishes were lovely, generous portions and well priced.

We often go there, but were disappointed last time with the deep fried blue cod - it was overcooked and dry (and there wasn't much of it), so will try somewhere else next time we visit Invercargill. Howl at the Moon in Gore has the best deep fried blue... More

Could not have been a better night. The food was amazing, the service was very tentative and happy to help. Thank you all. Well be back.

This servers are really pleasant and the beer is outstanding. We had just finished a poor to marginal meal at Waxy's and decided to stop in for a beer. Its so nice to sit by the fire on a cold day..such a great environment.
