They have a reasonable range of beer, rather limited menu, but you can sit outside right across from the park which is nice on a sunny day. It's neither good nor bad, just a place to have a beer or two, although the decor is nice.

I love this pub.

Sure, it's essentially a showcase for Fosters 'craft' brands of beer. But:
- the Reno job is outstanding, even for Perth's 'de-renovation' venues.
- love that position on the corner. Love that outdoor area in the sun!
- exceptional whiskey selection.
AND , above average pub food.

A stop on my Freo pub crawl that always takes an hour or so longer than the other stops, this one.

I dont think much of the drinks choice , it is known as a whiskey so unless you drink whiskey there is limited choices of beer and wine . It is a great spot though to drop in for a drink . I go there just for the chilli popcorn, a must try.It has a relaxed atmosphere very enjoyable new bar menu though a little inconsistent with the quality of the food.For me the lack of beer and wine selection lets the place down for me.

Change the staff in the ball and chain!!! The bar girl there couldn't be more rude! She wouldn't even look at me when I arrived! When I go to a place to have fun I would like to find at least a nice person. .. a polite one. That was a Tuesday at 4:30 pm... do something about it. For a customer service and hospitality industry she doesn't belong there. I won't go back if she is the reflection on all the other staff.

I made the mistake of inviting friends from out of town to the Ball & Chain. Still charging boom prices.$14 for a pint of beer and they had the cheek to charge me a card surcharge without telling me about it first.
Usual poor service that we have grown accustomed to in WA.
Shame on you for wasting a good venue.

Wow! This place has a lot to offer all types of customers. A fantastic renovation including preservation of some of the original features. A great bar for locals and visitors alike. The music is varied and of a level to encourage conversation but still create a vibe. The biggest surprise was that you can get great tasty food for less than a $20!! Great taste - great service - great presentation!! This will now be on our "must take visitors too list". Thank you Aaron and staff - a totally pleasant surprise ... oh I forgot to mention the great range of seating and that you can watch the world go by on one of Freo main streets - added bonus !

Just passing by and went in for a quick drink. Awesome bar, very spacious and well designed. We landed up staying and ordering food which was excellent quality and value. The service matched the food and we were happy to have found the place.

Has got a good selection of Matilda Bay Brewery beers on tap. The atmosphere is relaxed and makes you feel like you're having a meal or a beer at your own place.
