Took family member visiting from overseas for a special lunch occasion and were very underwhelmed by the poor service and overpriced steak and vegetable plate I could have cooked and prepared better at home. Only mild consolation was the location overlooking the beach, not enough to return ever again though.

We dined here on a weeknight with family including small children. The service we received was outstanding and nothing was a problem for the staff. Meals came out together and were hot, the children were catered for easily and all requests were met happily. Had a great night!

Ate in here several times while being in Terrigal for 3 weeks. Food was lovely, fair sized portions. Good value for money! Would recommend for families.

We dined here with high expectations as it is a popular chain of restaurants. The service was good, the young waiter went out of his way to make us comfortable and keep the kids entertained. The food, however, was not good! Steak over done, chicken dried out and the salad was border line mouldy. The one star is for the... More

We visited with family whilst on a short break in Terrigal - what a mistake! On walking up the stairs from the street and being shown to a table, I made a quick glance towards the kitchen and back of house area and saw food and dirt all over the floor - not a good start On sitting down at... More

Went here with friends, just look under the reception counter, has not been cleaned for months if not years, the kitchen door was ajar and we saw the same - so bad we could not even eat the food offered. The food was very basic and those who did date to eat said it was tasteless and never ever would... More

My partner and I came here for dinner last week on Monday the 2/12 2013. The food was absolutely Horrendous. We are frequent diners at Tuggerah and have no idea how they manage to stuff up a steak and veggies. My girlfriend had the Garlic Prawn Steak and I had the Natural and they were cold and not cooked to... More

I dined at this restaurant with my father in law, father and uncle in law. We all love had steak. Service - was quick professional and excellent Food - the steak had a lot of fat still left on the meat. Fat does help with the flavor however not too much. We all were cutting off the fat as there... More

I honestly can't believe how much trouble this place has caused. We called up at 7pm to check their kitchen closing time on a Tuesday night. The girl on the phone said 8:30. We were ready and driving there at 7:15 and called to make a reservation for 3 at 7:30. The girl then stated that they would be closing... More

Great location on the beach, my brother in law is a cregular diner, so took my wife and i there with our daughter while visiting them. the restaurant was about 2/3 full. We had booked and were seated by a lovely waitress. We were then ignored. Some people across the aisle were seated just after us and received their menus... More
