A short drive away from the CBD, the Thar and Feather turned out to be a great choice for our penultimate evening meal in Invercargill. For a Friday night (and Valentine's to boot) the place seemed not quite full, but this didn't reflect the yummy meals. The best seafood chowder I have ever had! That is NOT said lightly. Followed by delicious blue cod, my meal was very good, with the exception of an unidentifiable dressing on the salad - best left off in my opinion.
Service was good, polite, relaxed and pleasant. Pricing better than the central city.
I'd suggest management enlarge a bit on the hunting lodge theme - it seemed a bit bare in places and the table decorations were basic and not really in keeping with the theme, but we liked it and enjoyed our evening. I'd go again - just for the chowder!!

A group of 18 of us dined here tonight and what a fabulous time we had. Everybody commented on how lovely their food was and the generous portion sizes. The children's meals were also large in size.
Very reasonably priced compared to other restaurants in town.
Friendly service and the manager John was quite humorous lol.
Highly recommend going to this establishment. It's the 3rd time we've been and it's always been lovely.
Thanks for a great night again.

Lovely meal, large and we all thought it was reasonably priced compared to other places in Invercargill. The manager was very friendly, he definitely a keeper. Well done and we will be back for sure.

Had a nice time here when they first opened. Went back recently expecting the same good service and food, but what a let down. Steak was well over cooked, and everything was bland. Has the chef never heard of salt? Didn't think too much of the prices the first time, as we enjoyed ourselves. But with the food as bad as it was, it's very very pricey. A big let down. At least the waitress was pleasant and smiley.

Welcome a bit confusing, not sure if as casual dinners we were welcome initially but eventually seated. Wait staff friendly. This is not a sophisticated dining experience. But food came reasonably quickly. Basic drinks list. Reasonable range on menu and plenty of it. Well presented. For what it is, its very good. Certainly more reasonable than some other ILT establishments which are over priced.
