“Best Casual Food on the Sunshine Coast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

When I used to live at Alex, we'd eat here all the time. Now that I only come back as a visitor it is the only 'MUST DO' thing on our list when in town.

The owners are so friendly and whilst it's a very local crowd, it's a welcoming spot.

The food is basic grill fare, but delicious. The ribs & wings are nothing short of amazing. They have destroyed the ribs & wings experience at every other Australian restaurant for me, because nobody else in the this country seems to be able to do it as well. (apart from maybe Blue Smoke in Brisbane)

If you are looking for a casual meal, you can't go past the grill. And their specials are great value too.

“Where the locals live!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013 via mobile

Wicked atmosphere, great music and fantastic Yankee food - the wings and ribs are the best I've ever tasted!
Staff are friendly, fun and professional, the owner makes you feel likes its your local!
For a cold beer, great steak and a view to match, head here.
Thanks AB&G x

“If you want a great meal with the best view...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

Fantastic meals at a very reasonable price. Best view on the Sunshine Coast without a doubt! Owners are friendly and welcoming and the staff efficient. The food comes quickly and is ample on the plate! Very relaxed atmosphere and not a loud, TV blaring, music thumping sports bar. Perfect for anyone; romantic couples overlooking the beach, singles (you'll always find someone to talk to!) and family friendly too...

Great place, great food. Lovely friendly owners too. Recommend ribs and chicken wings, yummo!! Good deals through the week and great location right opposite the lovely Alex beach. Child friendly too.
