The staff are friendly, the food is satisfying and the Beer selection awesome. This little bar/foody spot is always a fun welcoming venue. The open mic nights, the fresh and on their way up acts this place gets is a great way to spend a night out when your going solo. Everyone is laid back, chilled and love to share... More

Called into the Pier with friends from Melbourne for pre-dinner drinks. Four drinks cost almost a small mortgage! Only one couple was there apart from ourselves which is somewhat saying something, until the younger crowd with more money than sense turn up later in the night to part with their week's wages. I wouldn't bother going there again. There are... More

Poor Service and felt rushed. Food was cold when we got it. Perhaps they where having a bad day the day we were there

I have visited this small bar a couple of times with friends but doubt I'll be back again. They still can't provide a wine list to choose from and instead make you tell them what wine you want and then go and get it from out the back, pour it and only show you the label when you ask them.... More

I believe this establishment has been renovated, for the better. Possibly the best fish I have ever eaten, grilled Barra, a big call but genuinely sincere. The meals are reasonably priced, chilled out atmosphere, will return.

My partner and I enjoyed a drink or 6 from the great little bar with friendly service, plenty of selection of beer and a cool band. Place gets nice a full on a Saturday.

Went there with a pregnant wife for some pub grub. Food was ordinary, sour cream on the nachos was an off white colour - didn't even resemble or taste like sour cream. The bacon on the works burger was diced, not fresh and was hardly even cooked. The lettuce was off and not washed. Very poor quality food. The staff... More

We came here with kids for dinner. Burger was 5/10. Fish was 4/10. Pizza was 2/10. It seems more like a place to go for drinking rather than food. Would not go back for food.
