Had a lovely relaxed steak lunch, with salads and fries for only $10.00 in a setting overlooking a small park.

Well, there seemed to be a lot of very young people here, suppose that's why the (bad) music was so loud you could barely hear yourself think. The smoking room is a nice thought I guess but so packed you were literally smoking before you even lit up, yuk. More bearable after the third drink, but I would not be... More

Nowhere near as good as the first time we visited back in Feb 2016. Sat for 10mins and no one approached us so we walked out.

Terrible place! Wanted to go somewhere nice on New Years Eve for partying but people were so boring and no one didnt even want to party. Typical Surfers Paradise stuck up people. Very unfriendly people. I gave a bartender a 50$ bill for a regular drink and got back 6$. Hustling scamming bartenders!! Couldnt talk to them either about it... More

Hello, Thank you for your feedback. I must say I am quite perplexed as to why you have waited 7 weeks to approach us about an incorrect change issue, I would have thought if this happened you would ask to speak to a Manager on the night to have the problem rectified immediately? This way there would have been the... More

Attended there for my birthday. Room could easily hold 150pax and is set out perfectly for cocktail style. The staff were friendly and excellent and good for a joke with. for smokers you have your own outside area. the finger food was very good. I recommend this venue for a variety of functions. Congratulations to the staff and management.

If you want to go to a PUB. This is for you. It smells like a pub, Meal specials are like a pub (small) but there's a pretty good menu to choose from. Most importantly the beer is cold & there's plenty of different beers on tap to choose from.
