“Best meal on the Coast!”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

Both met and went above our expectations. Great food, great service, great facilities....nothing to dislike! Perfect portion sizes, went the extra mile to ensure dietary needs could be met. One of the better Speights restaurants in the country we would have to agree. If ever back in Greymouth would only eat here.

“Clam chowder”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

We checked our bags at the Trans-Alpine train station and wandered around town. We enjoyed clam chowder for lunch with seats next to the oversized copper still.

“Great lamb pie”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

Stopped in for a quick bite whilst the Tranz Alpine turned around. Quick, efficient and friendly service, very good food, the lamb pie was fantastic, good beer and a quick turnaround. Highly recommend.

“Great Mussels, Steak, and atmosphere”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

We were ready for a great dinner and didn't go away disappointed. After hiking and driving a big chunk of the day, it was nice to sit back, enjoy an appetizer of Mussels in a cream curry sauce, and delicious entrees. I had the steak and it was done perfectly with lots and lots of freshly grated vegetables, etc. The menu choices are numerous so it was hard to settle on what to order but I enjoyed my choice and the local brews are nice too. Atmosphere is a large brew pub with lots of copper pipes, nice woods, etc. and the location is perfect as it is easy to access. The restaurant was very clean and service was prompt. Drove through downtown and most of it looked closed up at dinnertime so we were happy to find a place like this that was cheery, tasty and inviting!
