No better place in Sydney to unwind in the afternoon and have a few German beers while watching the Sunset. Always very friendly staff working especially Laura who's super friendly, genuine and prompt with the beer refill!! Amazing service. Keeps me coming back again and again.

We came here over the weekend and had beers and just some snacks notably the mac & cheese balls. The service was great and we had a nice table overlooking the water with a heater as well. Their variety of beers is unbeatable and the food was quite tasty. Will definetly be coming back regularly.

This restaurant was in a great location as we had just got off the ferry and were ready to eat.

Laura, our server, was the best! We are traveling with two kids, and the location was perfect. The adults sat and drank great beer while the kids played in the sand a few meters away. Decent prices for the area, great atmosphere, and the service was excellent!!

Husband ordered hot dog and chips and I mistakenly ordered chicken burger - my burger was so hot that I left most of it. Just couldn't eat it. I wasn't overly impressed with this place at all.

Good beer and food. What's not to like? Staff were all super efficient which makes a difference in a busy venue. Shout out to Joel (joellek) for a solid performance and made sure my beer glass was never empty.

Thank Peterahern
