“Great food”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

Have eaten hear a number of times and the food is always great. Big portions at decent prices, chilli wedges are to die for. Food is nicely presented aswell, Would be nicer to be able to eat in the restaurant as the bar area is more of a place for drinking in. The female waitress with the blonde hair could do with some proper training, she doesn't smile very much and doesn't like to make much conversation. I have been here with different friends and all agree that she makes you feel like you are putting her out by wanting to order. On one occasion when we were finished eating, our plates weren't cleared, and when my friend asked her for the dessert menu while she was passing the table, she didn't even make eye contact and just muttered something like "Ya, in a minute" and kept walking.. Other than that I would definately eat here again.

“Can't go wrong”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

We stumbled across this bar for lunch on a recent trip to Ballina. The place seemed popular to eat in so we thought we would chance it. The staff were extremely pleasant and efficient. There were daily specials that were read out to us from the chalk board. The menu is as you would expect for bar food; sandwiches, burgers, chicken wings etc. I had the steak sandwich which I would highly recommend. The steak was cooked to perfection and was delicious. It was served on ciabatta that had been lightly buttered with garlic butter. My mother had a toasted sandwich with chips and side salad. The portions were very generous and the quality of the food is very high.
If you are looking for a big feed at reasonable prices and of a high standard this is the place for you.

“Love it!!”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

We discovered this place on a visit to Ballina and its become a regular haunt ever since. The fact that the restaurant is always busy peaked our interest and once we sampled the culinary delights of the diverse menu we were hooked!! We have gone there both as a couple and with friends and on every occasion Bar Square has surpassed our expectations. The food is fab the atmosphere is warm and friendly but above all the staff are fantastic, they are friendly, efficient and could not be more helpful. This place is the biz!!
