This place does not deserve the title of restaurant. The service is ordinary, the wait unbelievable and the food disgraceful. I thought eating out was supposed to be a pleasant experience?

This joint is a disgrace. awful food and service. We waited for an hour and a half for a seafood platter that wasn't anywhere near worth the money. McDonald's up the street would be a much better option

Very quiet and pleasant surroundings, good service and perfectly cooked meals. We would definitely eat here again. Being attached to the motel helps as well.

We've been going to Breakers once or twice a year for 12-15 years when we visit from Melbourne. Last time was Oct 2014. Western districts beef - fantastic steaks, cooked 'blue' or 'rare' to perfection! Seafood - the oysters are the best - and presented in a range of styles - but natural are the stand-out for me!

A solid country restaurant which was very popular on the Saturday night we went. Good risotto with Lobster... Alas ran out of the oysters we wanted to try. The single waiter works his butt off keeping everyone happy. Reasonable price

Could not fault this place. We wanted seafood and they delivered. Seafood was fresh and cooked just right. Meal size was sufficient, especially if you have an entree or dessert. Waitress was friendly and service good. The atmosphere was cosy.

Excellent customer service from the new-bee waitress - her first night on the job! We enjoyed our meal and the interaction between Ms New-bee. Yummy seafood, and that's what we came here for. A little pricey, for size of meal. We'd go back again. Good work, Breakers!
