“Good food, on discount nights”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

I work in the area, and a few of us from work go here for the $10.00 burger and beer nights on Tuesdays. The burgers are usually approx $20.00 each, so its a great saving. The service can be a bit sloppy, as it seems like they are all Uni students who know each other. They can sometimes forget things are they are too busy socialising amongst themselves. The food is great, and I have always enjoyed my times there.

“Ok food , bad service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

Told to sit down rudely and then left at table for 45 minutes without a menu or drink while waitresses chatted to their friends. After 45 minutes they finally came after we got up and called them over and they gave us a menu but didn't tell us the specials or give us a drink despite asking for one. They also didn't return to get our orders so we went up to them and ordered. Food was average - definitely over priced and only get business due to location!

“Good food let down by sloppy service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

The food was delicious - oyster special and baby clamari salad in particular were memorable. Unfortunately the chefs were let down by poor service on the floor. Plates not cleared between starters and main course, nor at the end of main course! No offer of a nother glass of wine or dessert or more water. In fact, mostly ignored once order was taken. What a shame as the food was worth a return visit - the service was not. Sloppiness isn't 'cool'.

“Salmon to die for”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2013

Fantastic food. My friend and I had Cajun salmon with prawns on a bed of spinach and chorizo. Yum, so tasty. Catered for gluten and dairy free issue. Ambience was warm and lighting just right, log fire. Service was fantastic, our waiter was great.

“Great pizzas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

Myself and my family all had pizzas here and each one was fantastic. Great to have pizzas with topping that are a bit more interesting than the standard take away pizza. We had great service as well. Would go back if I lived in Hobart.
