“Great location and food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

Like the title this place has great food, Sunday through Thursday there is a different special for dinner. We ate steak, salad and chips for $12.90. It was great.
There are different happy hour specials like 2 for 1 cocktails and a decent selection of tap beers. We were made to feel welcome both times we visited.
The toilets are clean which was nice in a pub for a change.
The outdoor tables give you plenty of opportunity to people watch as you sit and have a drink. We will defiantly be back again.

“Nice food, central location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013 via mobile

In the heart of surfers paradise - it is a nightclub by night, resturant by day and early evening.

We ate in the Resturant. The steak was really good - especially the red wine jus. The chicken dish was average, not bad, not great. Most mains are around the $30 mark.

Ok atmosphere and fast friendly service.

We ate here a couple of times and really enjoyed our meals although a little pricier than other restaurants in the vicinity but as I said we enjoyed our meals.

“Same service as the last time”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

Last review approx 8 months ago paid compliments to the food but the service was good when traveling as a couple but very cold when I returned as a bloke on my own.
Another trip last week showed that the service from the Kiwi girl has not improved and was even very cold, disinterested and bordering on plain rude evan as a couple.
Service from a Brazilian lady was very good, good humour

“Awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013 via mobile

My name is Lisa, my husband John and I plus our three kids have been coming to surfers for over ten years. The avenue is our favourite place to eat in surfers. We have come to know Michael who always makes a point of coming to say hello when we visit. The kids are always welcome and the food is great. Highly recommend for breakfast, lunch or dinner ! Five stars
