Buffet Pizza

We went for the cheap happy hour drinks and decided to stay for the buffet pizza night. The food started coming out on 6pm and the pizza was really nice. However, the pizzas that were brought out at 6pm were still their at 7pm because we were the only people eating at the buffet. I waited for about... read more

The food was very good and the prices were very reasonable making High Tide a very good place to dine. The service was excellent too. We had a great night there.

Open for lunch and dinner Monday to Saturday. Awesome happy hour prices for all to enjoy. Pool table also available for entertainment. Meal selections are decently priced and there is also something suitable for the kids.

I must say the pizza was nice, but the staff didn't say hi or even make you feel welcomed, I asked for a menu and she said " we are only doing pizza" (which I knew) and she carried on chatting. I stood there waiting and awkwardly looking around, she gave me the feeling I was in the way and... More

If wanting a steak salad chips just basic good food reasonable price Only $20 good value. The place is upstairs, has a bit of a view of the harbour. Marketed to younger people, as the music can leave you a bit numb.

Stopped in one afternoon for a few drinks. Great location to watch the cars go past and the harbour. Pool table available to use. Mixture of locals and tourists.

Came and had drinks and lunch and have to say, was left a little ahhh, whatever. The saving grace was the view, but I think the clientele is designed for the young groups. The prices are reasonable but found the pizza average.

We walked in one evening and asked if they served dinner (mainly because people were just sitting smoking and drinking) and the girl behind the bar looked at us as if we had asked the most bizarre question. Anyway we took a seat and sat for a short while but she never came over to us, so we just got... More
