My family and I stayed in Surfers Paradise for 2 nights, and we went here for dinner both times! We love American style food and the Melbourne restaurant closed several years ago. The food and drinks were excellent both nights. Our toddler loved our table by the kitchen as he could see the chefs cooking. Downsides were it was super... More

The food is great, the cocktails are great, the drink selection is wonderful. However should you wish to eat after 2030-2100hrs on a weekend in a party town where it say open till late.... Well you're out of luck. I find it absolutely mental that not just your restaurant but most in surfers and the gold Coast do not serve... More

Friendly staff, great burgers, and kids meals, and awesome memorabilia on the walls, the only things that let them down were the booth table had no lighting so we couldn't read the menu at lunch on a bright sunny day, and the drinks service was slow. Our second drink order placed with the person who delivered the meals never came... More

It doesn't matter how many times we go here, its always a great atmosphere and great feed. The staff are very friendly. Its great to go to a restaurant that has hype/life going on and is not so serious! They have fun staff but I do worry about chips on those glasses, but its very entertaining watching their tricks.

Great atmosphere, great customer service and good value. Burgers to die for beating, hands down, anything else on offer in the immediate area.

I went there with a group of 20 girls from a conference I was attending. When we arrived we were told "no split bills", but saying that, after a discussion we were allowed to split the bills and pay separately. We ordered our food and I requested water at the same time. The water took FOREVER to arrive,and the food... More

Food was fantastic and served very quickly. Great to celebrate a special birthday. The overhead fans were inadequate for a hot night and the place was a bit noisy but great atmosphere

Give credit when credit is due, that hickory bacon cheese burger was perfect in every way. Don't know why people say expensive, my burger cost me $21 and I could even finish my fries. My friends had a parmie, plate went back empty. I can't comment on the cocktails, I enjoyed a cold blonde because it was so hot today.... More
