With some trepidation, after reading some bad reviews, we went to OBJ at Southport. What a pleasant surprise. The staff were fantastic, couldn't do enough for us and the food was éxtremely good. We had 3 children with us and they were looked after really well. I would go back in a heartbeat. Well done to all the staff for... More

Staff were nice, the steaks were quite average for the price. I had the large t-bone and it certainly was a large bone with minimum meat. The best part of this place is the kids room and the fact kids eat free on certain nights.

just the most horrible slow service everytime, i definitely understand when it is busy but it wasnt every time. Food was Luke warm and had to send back to the kitchen, even the waitress was quite surprised at the how cold the meal was. terrible terrible terrible service and they do not care about their customers at all.

I tried the "challenge" but sadly failed! A whole massive 1kg steak in under 30 mins although beautifully prepared and cooked my eyes were too big for my belly (although others would argue)! Dining on the deck either night or day is magnificent overlooking the river with the lights of surfers paradise as the backdrop - truly memorable. Great food... More

I visited the place on a quit mid-week evening, sitting outside, overlooking the river. Not such a common extra in this part of town that is still suffering under it's development. Maybe that's why I take the bit over-sauced but good tasting ribs as they were. Forget the chips, forget the salad, enjoy sitting outside with typical Aussie style ribs.... More

The children's entertainment area was great. The food was really nothing flash but Ok. The kids spag bol. needed more sauce. The kids calamari was just squid rings but there was plenty of food for all. The steak was cooked medium as requested and enjoyed.

Been a while since we went there but will never forget it - Sticky floors and tables - nothing worse. ewwwwww Food disappointing. We had ribs and Chicken parma. Our daughters lemonade tasted very strange. I think the whole place needs an overhaul.

I ordered the chicken schnitzel it came out with dry flavourless chips and no sauce or gravy. The chicken was dry. My husband and two guests got the Angus burgers and didn't finish them as they were dry and flavourless. We got the salt and pepper squid which tasted soft and microwaved. The kids got a microwaved pizza. Disappointing as... More

My steak was over-cooked and dry. The salad was soggy and unappealing. My husbands ribs were drowned in sauce which was over powering and he couldn't finish his meal. The high chair for my baby was very dirty and none of the clips worked to secure her in. May not be a huge issue to other people but for me... More
