“Dinning Experience”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2013 via mobile

The first time we visited this establishment the food was excellent - the steaks cooked too perfection & the Guinness refreshing.

Today's experience was an altogether different experience. With no more twenty customers the servers struggled. Admittedly, they had time to chat to each other rather focus on the paying dinners. So service was very slow.

The steaks were again excellent and served as ordered - thank you chef for your focus and attention to quality. Advice to management - make sure servers focus on customer service.

“Irish Bar .......not!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2013

A pint of Kilkeeny does not make an Irish bar and ANY bar that shuts at 9pm on a Tuesday night should be struck off any association with Ireland :)

“Good craich?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2013

Eat here very often when in Brisbane. Excellent Guinness and wide range of other beers. Surf and turf or reef and beef as they call it, always good. They do close rather early at times and I still cannot comprehend a surcharge for holidays.

“Good pub food and an excellent beer and ale selection”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2013

Ate here two years ago and the food and service have improved markedly. There ale and beer selections have greatly increased and the food was quite good. i had the grilled chicken ceasar wrap which was wonderful. The chips were especially tasty, and will have to make a return visit before leaving Brisbane
