“With what is usually is a great experience wasn't so great last night!!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2013

Met up with a few friends last night for dinner. Usually a great meal, great service etc. Last nights experience was CRAP!

Firstly it took 45 minutes to get our meal no-one told us this is how long we would have to wait! My friend spoke to a guy who looked to be the owner & he went out & spoke to waiters. They soon come running out with the meals & then tryed blaming it on the fact they had a table of 19 to serve before us. The restaurant wasn't even full & they couldn't keep up!

After waiting so long, the meals were pretty ordinary.

Now we have relocated, hopefully the Coffs Harbour Hoggies will be as good as Forster one used to be!

“To food as Gloria jeans is to coffee”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2013 via mobile

Always solid, but never awesome. Service was fantastic, and food was as good as an RSL. Kids meals obviously ex-frozen in some cases, but that's what you expect. No complaints, just a flatline experience.
