Recently visited this Roadhouse on two occasions . Food was very good-ribs/pizza/steak and burger. Service was very good and staff attentive. The view is beautiful and the atmosphere was electric.
We really enjoyed it and will definitely return later this year.

We are regular visitors to PE and have worked our way through most of the restaurants and were very interested to try out this phoenix of a roadhouse.

A lovely setting providing inside eating or covered outdoor eating or open outdorr eating - take your pick dependent on the wind.

Contrary to some other reviews we found the service to be spot on.

My meal choice was cajun calamari which was melt-in-the-mouth scrumptious.

My wife chose batter fried hake - a large portion, nicely cooked with a fresh and crisp batter.

Hake is served in most PE restaurants but this was definitely the best we've ever had.

The menu is nicely balanced between beachfront snacks and restaurant meals.

We have in mind a breakfast there shortly, on the deck overlooking the ocean.

Hats off to whoever brought this roadhouse back to life,

We had lunch at Something Good after spending the day on the beach. Its great that they let you in full of sand and dressed down especially with kids. The service was VERY slow although the place was packed so understandable. I had a the most tender calamari wrap, was divine. Other guests in our party had pizzas which looked great.

It was so good, we went back for dinner that night. The service was much better, live band playing so the ambience was great and the food was even better than lunch time!

Located just next to the parking at the beachfront, this is a great place to sit during the day and enjoy the weather. You can go to the beach before and after as it is just a few metres away. There is a good choice of food and I like that they offer different portions, for example you can have the chicken burger with 200g of meat, just 100g or in a small snack size. The burger I had was very nice, yummy sauce.
The only negative point is the service. I can understand that it gets busy at certain times but it really was Very slow the two times I was there.
