“Great place for a cold one”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013 via mobile

Went to Mitchell's on a local recommendation and was not disappointed. They had some great ales on tap including my now favorite weis brau. Durlinger weis brau. My friend had an old wobbly. Im not a fan of smoking in bars but such is life. Great location and had a fun time. Would go back.

“Just ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

disappointed with service and atmosphere. Wanted to sit outside as it was beautiful. Sign posted said No Smoking. We sat down and they seated a party of four right in front of us; they proceeded to smoke. I have asthma so I could not sit by them. We moved to an undesirable table to get away from the smoke. Asked the waittress and she said the very outside tables could smoke. didn't make sense, so we had one drink and left.

“Great Beer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

I love the way you can sit outside and eat and drink. Hubby highly recommends their beer. Nice tasting snack baskets. Friendly waitrons. Great place for people watching.

“Top beers on offer!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

The waterfront is often pretty crowded but this place sometimes has a free seat or two as it is set back from the water front.

Friendly service and a typical pub atmosphere. It is easy to waste a Sunday arvo in the beer garden outside watching the world go by. Food was average, nothing special but at the same time not disappointing. Good value for money and the special of the day are cheaper still.

The beers are the winner here. Grab a tasting panel of the Mitchell's home brews and you wont be dissappointed.
