“Lots of Variety, Lack of Flavors”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

The menu at Geckos is extensive. With a group of four, we found the food okay. The flavoring is left to the Customer, nothing special.

“Bad experience”
Reviewed July 14, 2013 via mobile

Food was fair, atmosphere was fair but had a very poor experience with the staff. We will not return. So many other places around that location that give better quality food a d especially give better service.

“Convenient and Local”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Geckos has been around for years. They have great burger and salad meals as well as more formal entrée selections. Game screens are on, full bar and even an outdoor sitting area. Good food at reasonable prices. Good family environment as well.

“Great value and good food.”
Reviewed June 20, 2013 via mobile

Ate here whilst staying at the hotel across the road. Two for one drinks all day proved great value. The food was good also, I had the burger and it was as good as anywhere. I would come back.

“$5.00 hamburger Monday's rule!”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

This is a great sports bar. The food is good, with lots of choices. You have to go on a Monday and enjoy their giant $5.00 hamburger. If you are adventurous, have the Gecko Burger. It costs more but what a meal. A huge hamburger topped with cheese, chilly and a fried onion ring, lettuce, tomato and sweet potato fries on the side. YUM!
