The food was excellent and great value. We and the couple travelling with us shared a meal each couple. It was huge and probably the best ribs I have ever eaten. Yum we will be back when we travel to the North Island again! Highly recommened

Great place to take the kids for great meal. The ribs are amazing as the meat just falls off the bone. The only thing I would say was it would be great if they had a veggie option (I know it's a rib restaurant).

Good value, fast service, friendly staff, great central location

Stopped in here for lunch feeling really famished after a morning of sea air on our Dolphin Cruise. Really delicious burgers and chips, in fact, possibly the best burgers around. Huge servings so make sure you’re really hungry.

Thankyou so much. I especially like our BBQ bacon burger not terribly healthy I know but good to eat on occasion with a beer.
Cheers Les

Great service, okish food, our ribs were a bit drowned in sauce... Great service though, and reasonable pricing.

Hi Thanks for your nice review. The amount of sauce is a problem some like heaps and some don't a fine balancing act im afraid.

Have eaten here a few times over the last couple of summers, food is always good and very generous servings. On our most recent visit our waitress was lovely, very friendly and made sure we were enjoying our meals and had plenty of drinks.
