My wife and I had early supper at this historic place. The decor and atmosphere is very nice - a fireplace would be perfect. Nevertheless, i had a delicious quarter chicken with chips and enjoyed my meal. The waiter was professional and friendly. The place...More

Something Good is well known as a value-for-money roadhouse, but I was surprised to see that there are several tasty options for vegetarians too. The house-made veg burger (which can be ordered original or with cheese and mushroom sauce) is one of the best veg...More

Such a nice spot to enjoy the afternoon sun with a burger and a beer or late night music with fish and chips. Pizza was always good. Always seemed to be busy.

Lovely views and great food. Prices are reasonable and big portions you will want to go back for. We had the bunless chicken burger and pizza and it was very good. Very filling will go back soon.

Good vibes, sea views and a bit of Port Elizabeth history. The recently renovated Something Good Roadhouse is somewhat of a historical landmark. All local born-and-bred PE people have a childhood memory of getting ice-cream from the roadhouse, most likely on a windy Sunday afternoon....More

They do serve breakfast daily from 8am to 11am with the exception of Mondays when they open at 11am. I have however not had breakfast there thus can not comment. I have loaded a photo of some of the breakfast items offered.

Something Good Roadhouse situated on the idyllic Pollock Beach in Port Elizabeth. Perfect stop before or after a stroll along PE's golden beaches. We serve breakfast, lunch and dinner with a large menu catering to all tastes. A popular family destination with fantastic kiddies attractions and live music most evenings. We also offer the original roadhouse option with waiters serving customers in their cars. Attached to the roadhouse you will find our speciality ice cream parlour that makes our famous milkshakes. We look forward to welcoming you to Something Good.
