We arrived just after 12, didn't seem too busy then but were told they had run out of mash. I found this very surprising when you consider there was a Coles supermarket 5 mins away so they could have restocked but that aside the meal was very good. Two of our party had the Salmon beautifully cooked but no sauce which was a bit diappointing. The steak sandwich was a battle for the teenager to finish while the calamari and chicken breast on couscous was delicious. The Game Tasting Plate, which was a special of the day, was just that - a taste - although juicy and beautifully cooked it was tiny - I had to steal everyones chips to fill up !!! Would I eat there again? Definately

Mavericks is right on the waterfront. Prices for drinks are reasonable and the staff are very friendly

Newish bar/restaurant on the bay. Stylish for Nelson Bay, great cocktails and funky music. The food was ok, nothing out of the box, but nice. The staff friendly and knowledgeable ... certainly will be busy in peak periods, but during the week it was comfortable.

Great Harbour side bar to have a beer / wine and a counter lunch. Check out the very expensive Boats in the marina
