“Can't beat it!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

Just arrived in Townsville for a couple of days and wandered past The Brewery. What a magnificent old building which has been restored. It was rather hot and a cold ale sounded good, which indeed it was. The Brewery is very well decked out and the aircon is a welcome relief on a hot day. A large boutique beer is $6. We had just missed the lunch special so we decided to return the following day for lunch. It was filled with locals and quite understandably so. For $10 you get a large boutique beer as well as a huge steak sandwich and chips. The steak was very tender and certainly much better than I expected for the price. Pleasant surroundings which provide good food and beer.

“Excellence!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014 via mobile

I'm a chef with over 25 years experience, my partner (also a chef) & I dined at The Brewery last night....it was exceptional! A taste sensation, wonderful service & fresh menu listings. After 5 weeks on the road eating out every night this was an oasis in the long list of restaurants we have dined at. Well done, we will be back.

Went with a large group to the Malt Restaurant, the meal was very nice and the service also good. Our waitress was brilliant and gave recommendations and menu selections.

“Amazing spot with great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2014 via mobile

All I can say is I will be back. The staff were friendly and knew their menu well. The food was quick and amazing. A lot of it was twists on classics which turned them into great dishes. Even the garlic bread, with a dukkah twist, was scrumptious. Great find for a relaxing night out on a work trip.

“Good beer|”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 20, 2014

We ate there twice - once in the bar and once in the restaurant. Good basic food with beer from the brewery. The bar tended to be noisy and lively - great for a snack but not conducive to a relaxing meal. The restaurant had a better atmosphere for a relaxing meal following a day of sightseeing
