“More bark than bite”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2012 via mobile

This place is an institution, just off the UQ St Lucia campus grounds. Fare is typically greasy and not any better in value than other fish and chipperies in the area, and you won't stay longer than you have to, but it earns its keep as a meeting place, casual eatery and diversion from study.

“Quite a depressing experience”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2012 via mobile

Was a great cafe when first opened many years ago. All it is now is a depressing greasy experience not worthy of it's former glory.

“Pick Your Own”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2012

The thing I like about A Salt & Battery is you can build your own gourmet takeaway meal. Pick prawn skewers, scallops skeweres etc etc and they cook it up for youo with chips and salads. Just be aware the bill adds up quickly with out you realising it!

“Great value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2012

It's an eat-it-and-beat-it place but the food is excellent and it's great value, The staff is friendly too.
