We arrived and were told we would have a wait. So we ordered purchased a drink and got a table. The food came out much sooner than we expected and it was good wholesome food. The staff were excellent and even took the trouble to thank us for coming.

Had diner here with 6 friends, great meals with a good selection of choice, several local craft beers on tap well worth trying. Staff very friendly, great photos, trophies and memorabilia from days gone by capturing how good the waters around the bay of islands are. Well worth a visit.

We all had the pork Belly.....consensus was, it could have been cooked a wee bit longer, but overall a great meal. We didn't have any wine as we thought it quite over-priced.

It's not cheap but the fish and chips and stunning waterfront balcony dining make it worth it. There is a good wine list reasonably priced and very fast and friendly service.

Lovely friendly club with magnificent trophies hung around the place. Great bar service and, although we didn’t eat here the food looked very good.
