“Staff who can't listen”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

Got my order completely wrong twice. After the first time despite telling them exactly what was wrong with it still got it wrong again. Terrible. Not planning to go back any time soon.

“worst food and service ever”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

2 years ago I would have given Breakers a great review but the last visit we went as a family for a quick dinner with the children and the food was horrible, it came out staggered so by the time one of us finished, food still hadn't arrived for others. The onion rings were oily and tasted foul, serving sizes were definitely smaller but more expensive and I won't be returning there which is sad because it usually would be somewhere we would go as a family but service and food has progressively worse.

“Great Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

The service that we received at Breakers was great! Even when one child spilt her ice cream, it was replaced without question. Thanks for a great hassle free meal out with children!
