“Looking for tasty steak washed down with a good beer”
Reviewed February 8, 2014

This Brewery bar had a nice outside area where you could also eat if preferred. It had nice spacious bar and quiet restaurant to eat in. Good selection on the menu and friendly waiting staff. To be recommended

“Don't get the steak special, menu food better!”
Reviewed February 7, 2014 via mobile

Stopped here for dinner on our way up the coast. Both my husband and I ordered the steak special with beer for $20. We both wished we hadn't as the steak was very chewy, and very large. We have had dinner here previously a few years ago and had better memories of the food. Very family friendly although our 9 month old was too small for their high chair. There is also a change table in the disabled toilet which is a bonus. Good selection of beers.

“Great night”
Reviewed January 7, 2014 via mobile

Although a rather limited menu, the food was great. Service was excellent. Good wine list. Only down side was the cigarette smell wafting in from outside smoking area.

“Friendly staff, fast service”
Reviewed December 27, 2013 via mobile

Pleasantly surprised to see this come up on Trip Advisor as a restaurant close to us when we visited Paraparaumu.

Greeted by a friendly bar man as soon as we entered the bar. Gave us a choice of seating; bar or restaurant. We chose the restaurant like most other people. There were three other groups already seated.

Small but simple menu. Great prices. Didn't see anything over $22. You could get a steak meal for that which was great. I had Cesar salad and my partner had the calamari. Had apple juice as well which came to $31, so not a bad deal. They also had a good selection of beers but we didn't have any.

Nice, light atmosphere with music playing in the back ground.

Friendly bar man from New York bid us farewell with a smile and wished us a good day. I hope more people rate this bar/restaurant as it's a great place with friendly staff and could do with more reviews on Trip Advisor.

We would definitely go back.
