Good Food

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.

Had a delicious lunch at High Tide, the food was great, staff very friendly and helpful, view was great of the harbour and the art on the wall you just want to take home!

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

$20 Rump Steak, egg, chips and salad for lunch menu. Very big meal and big piece of steak (400-500gr at a guess). Cooked medium rare as requested. Was not so keen on the salad dressing which was a bit much and made its way onto the other food. Had 2 times in three days so must have been good. Service... More

We ended up at this bar on a rainy afternoon. My husband and I both had ribs, and we thought they were quite good - tender and tasty. The dish came with lots of fries and an Asian salad. Our server was attentive with drinks and meal, and the price was reasonable. We were surprised when we inquired about the... More

This has a great view to look at while enjoying yummy food. Restaurant is a bit small if you are with a group but overall nice food and friendly staff.

On the night we visited, they had lots of locals-just as I like it. Happy hour was from 6-10pm and at ten minutes before happy hour finishes, they pull in a bell! Great atmosphere, friendly people! I noticed there was pool table and if you go earlier, a buffet dinner. I can't comment on the dinner though as I didn't... More
