Popped in for a glass of pinot and a serve of fries. Would have expected a bit more for a Hilton resort. The pub layout is all wrong. Should have been built with amazing views but you can't see hardly anything of the lake and mountains etc if you sit inside. Inside was warm and staff were friendly.

Nice pub. Stopped in for a quick bite to eat and a beer before going over to Queenstown. Staff is friendly and helpful. Drink selection is good. We had the pizza which was yummy! We did a half and half with seafood and lamb. It was great!

Good atmosphere at Stacks, it has a sports bar/pub vibe. The food is nice but could have a few more standard pub dishes on the menu. Desserts are very disappointing, I would not recommend ordering. I had the sticky date pudding with butterscotch sauce only the sauce was not butterscotch and tasted as though it came from a bottle. My... More

Stacks pub is part of the Hilton in Queenstown. We visited twice while staying over in kelvin heights. There is seriously not much about in the area. Handy place with decent food maybe a little on the pricey side but not unusual for a ski area. Service is very attentive and my steak was fantastic the first night. So good... More

We had a meal here. The staff were very friendly. I had the Friday night special which was beef schnitzel fries and salad for $18 which was very nice. We had 8 at the table and everyone was very pleased with their meals. I had the creme brûlée which was delicious and only $13 and it was served with 2... More

We chose to eat at the Stacks Pub which is in the Kawarau Hilton complex. The modern, rustic chic décor looked great and skis were skillfully and artistically used to enhance the add-on wall decorations. There was a choice of seating areas from tables for two, tables for larger groups and an area or families where they could watch kids... More

Good pub grub is how I would describe this place. Nothing fancy, but for 4 hungry businessmen it had cold beer and hot food. We went for the burgers, which were filling and tasty. Big serves of food make it great for ending a tough day on the road. Staff were good and environment is pretty cool. Location next to... More

We went to this place twice during our stay at Hilton Doubletree, mainly because choices are limited being quite a distance from downtown. We arrived at 6pm to be told that their daily special, roast of the day, was all sold out! The waiter told us that this happens regularly which makes you wonder how sincere they are about providing... More
