Food was good. Service not bad... Too many kids in there considering it's a brewery. The schnitzel open sandwich for lunch was fantastic

I came with my family in December 2012 and chose this resto based on it's #3 rating in Cowes. Based on the reviews (and menu prices!) I was expecting a lot more than what we got. Everything was too salty and really expensive. I wouldn't recommend this place for dinner as each main is around $25-35 and you don't really get what you pay for. Can't knock the service though, they were nice.

We visited here for lunch before going to the Koala Conservation centre. On arrival all of the outside tables were occupied - but when we mentioned we had hoped to sit outside, they carried a table and 2 chairs from the restaurant out onto the decking especially. My husband tried and enjoyed a couple of their own beers. We both had open sandwiches which were delicious. The lunch was slightly marred by the arrival of a band of tipsy morris dancers who insisted on demonstrating their "skill" but we can blame the brewery for that!

This was a must on our list to do and we are so glad we did. Started with a beer tasting paddle..... a great range of beers. Food was a tasting plate with the yummiest homemade dips and condiments. The calamari is to die for and the mussel dish is superb. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place. Go and try for yourself. Open Wed-Sun.

Great location looking out over the gum trees (and the giant koala). Beer and sparkling wine paddles allow you to try a variety of drinks. Calamari Entree was huge - all of the meals are very generous. The beef pies are amazing - tender meat, rich gravy and beautiful pastry and the hand cut chips are really good too. Chef's salad yummy and a little different with beetroot and feta. Will definitely be back with the kids next time to eat on the front decking.
