Chicken Open Sandwiches have been on our menu forever and they are definitely one of the most popular dishes. Great to hear the service was good too, we will let the staff know :)

“Great food, perfect addition to the cricket”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

Perfect place for Saturday night tea, with huge screens to watch the cricket. Food was great, white bait omelette was delicious and girlfriend ordered the naki burger and it was huge and tasty. Staff were attentive and really friendly, we will definitely come back.

“Lunch for 7”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

3 of us had the ribs, 1 chicken pasta, 1 brekkie, 1 naki burger and I had the battered fish and chips. The ribs were OK, the pasta good, the brekkie better, the burger great BUT the fish and chips were EXCELLENT. The price really good for the amount of food. Only small prob was the cleaning of the tables. I recommend this place as a must visit if in New Plymouth.

Thank you for writing a review, it is always good to know the good and the bad. I will pass on to the Chefs what you thought of the meals, and have a word with our wait staff about making more of an effort in clearing tables. Cheers.

“Good service - Great meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

After being turned away from Garage Joe's because they were full we walked a few minutes away to a bar restaurant called Crowded house and all I can say is Im glad Garage Joe's was full.
The meal was top class, plentiful, reasonably priced AND the surroundings were ok. We had a better time and no doubt saved a few bucks.

“Enjoyable and relaxed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

Went after the movies so it was handy location, good variety on menu. Steak was cooked very nicely. Sat and watched sports while waiting for our meal, very relaxed atmosphere.
