“Great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2014 via mobile

Great location to sit and look out over the water . Haven't eaten here yet but food does look good. Can get very busy and I agree with other reviews on here that staff don't seem to know who is next , I watched a manager move a member of staff from one end of the bar to the other and back again meaning she had no idea who was next wherever she went and this annoyed those patiently queuing - like me !

“A great spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2014

We have been here a number of times now since moving to WA. It is such a fantastic spot, it has great food at a very reasonable prices and is situated in an absolutely fantastic spot over looking the swan. We were here last on Saturday and while the temps hit the 40's a gentle breeze from the river meant sitting outside was still comfortable.
It does get very busy (we have always been for lunch) but still the food arrives quick and consistently good.
We will continue to visit this great place and take our visiting friends.

“Great food, great location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2014

We dropped in for a drink mainly because of the quirky name. As we sat over the water enjoying the atmosphere we noticed a couple eating a huge seafood platter, so decided to return the next night to test it out. Next evening we arrived, Friday night, packed with holiday makers and post work drinkers. Luckily we found a table and decided to stay. The seafood platter for two cost $58.00, which is a pretty good price for Perth. It came out fairly promptly and was exceptional. There was a good range of seafoods, all excellently cooked, and some lovely salad as well. Well done Lucky Shag Bar!

“try and get rules & regulations a little like 2014”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2014

Arriving off a Swan Rv boat cruise which was great, we went for a drink at this bar with our new found Perth friends to round off the day. We were evicted even after we asked to put the offending wine bottle behind the bar, clearly we had no intention of being so rude as to drink the take home bottle of wine and not that served at the bar. This bar needs some competition at this premium Perth location. Very disappointing and very gruffly handled by staff.

“useless barstaff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2014

great pub, great atmosphere, great food at sensible prices, my only upset is with the bar staff, they haven't got a clue how to run a bar, and are incapable of knowing who is next to serve, they will argue that it is busy, but that is no excuse, a good bar person knows exactly who is next to serve.
