“Great food, Great view, great service”
Reviewed January 22, 2013

Nothing to dislike here - friendly staff, delicious food, reasonable prices, great location. One of the high points of our stay. Would stay in Nelson Bay again just to experience this place again. Coldest beer in the Bay.

“Steaks are Better Than HBC!”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

Great location and atmosphere!

My boyfriend and I went here for dinner and had a lovely time. He was stoked that he actually got the medium-rare steak that he asked for! I had a chicken/couscous dish (can't remember the name) which was also lovely.

Meals took a little while to come out and I found it odd having to pay for extras like the sauce for your steak or a side of chips (which is usually included) but overall we had a lovely time.

Will definitely be back to try out the cocktail menu!

“Hit and Miss”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

I was expecting good quality food at this resturant and was disapointed. The seafood tasting plate was very nice and worth the price, the ceaser salad was terrible and the morney lobster was unfourtunatley not much better. This is a great spot for a beer and a snack maybe not dinner.

“Great cocktail but seafood platter a let down”
Reviewed January 4, 2013

My wife and I shared a seafood platter for two but it was disappointing. Platter was meant to include a selection of fruit but that was limited to 2 pieces of watermelon. The seafood itself was mostly from frozen and not sufficient for 2 people.
The cocktails on sale were excellent.
