“disappointed about our place”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

having bought a $20 voucher for our place, my husband and i decided to go there for a platter. having had one of their platters before, i was looking forward to it as the first one we had was great. so i booked a table - when we arrived we were shown to a table right by the door. probably the worst table in the place. this should not be the table you get when you have actually done the right thing and made a booking - the table was so close to the door, that you could hardly even get in and out - so we asked to move tables as there were still heaps of better tables available. when i ordered my drink, i asked for no ice - thinking that even though no ice was in the drink, the beverage would still be chilled in the fridge - big disappointment when my drink arrived and its warm - yuk! then as we read the menu we noticed that the platters had changed from our last visit - very disappointing as the selection on the platters was not as good as it used to be. so we ordered the mixed platter. not impressed - the best thing on it was the roast potatoes which was very tasty. the steak tasted burnt and the pork belly was so fatty that it made me feel sick. the menu stated there was mixed prawn and scallop kebabs wrapped in bacon so we got 3 of these on the platter, so we thought each kebab would have a mixture of both scallpos and prawns on easch kebab. but we ended up with 2 scallop only kebabs and 1 prawn kebab. as they were wrapped in bacon, you didnt know what you were eating and it was disappointing as my husband unknowingly ate the only prawn kebab and left the 2 scallop kebabs. why not do a mixture of both on each kebab. as the platters are pre-chosen, the items do not suit everyone - so why not give people a choice to make their own platter by being able to choose their own items?? overall a disappointing experience and we will not be going back!

“Great platters”
Reviewed July 25, 2012

Great place to stop for a drink or some food. Their platters are huge and excellent value for money at $40 each. They easily fed two of us for dinner. Good range of top beers and an interesting vibe, with families present in the early hours and regular people enjoying the night life after 8. Definitely worth a visit and grab a platter while your there. I recommend the meat one!

“Nice place for a drink. Not crazy about the food.”
Reviewed July 21, 2012

Decent atmosphere. Nice outdoor space. Nothing special, but there are limited options in town.
