“Average In Every Sense”
Reviewed 18 April 2014

Went here recently with a number of friends for dinner.
The service, like the prices and quality of most of the food wasn't terrible, but certainly wasn't worth 5 stars either.
The biggest downer of the night was when the wrong meal came out to our table, and when the correct meal was eventually brought out, the meat was rather over cooked, making the gesture of giving twice as much to make up for the initial mistake more of a burden than a treat.

“NICE”
Reviewed 21 January 2014

We go to breakers once a month, and although it is pricey with the amount of kids we take there, they enjoy it. the food is delicious, though I would recommend that if you order desserts then get it delivered with the meal otherwise youll be there for ages, not that the kids will mind

“The poorest service..”
Reviewed 19 January 2014

Went to Breakers Wanganui on the 29th of last mth.
We had rung them earlier in the day to book and let them know that there was 22 of us including 8 children.
Now being Breakers we did not expect to much but it does sell it self as a Family Restaurant.
What followed was just despicable Dropped drinks,staff swearing in front of us at each other,mixed up food orders and incorrect billing about sums it up.
Will never grace there doors again..

“Convenient and quite adequate”
Reviewed 25 September 2013

I ate breakfast and one dinner here while staying in the Grand Hotel to which this is attached. The free continental breakfast was basic but adequate, but the restaurant menu was all you need, with good variety and good value.

“Regular Spot”
Reviewed 11 May 2013

Meals may not be presented overly well but they certainly taste good. Large servings and a great selection. Also daily specials. Service can be a little slow on occasion, however, the food has always been excellent.
