“NOT value for money!!!”
Reviewed 31 October 2013 via mobile

Decided on nachos and seafood basket to take away. Nachos $18! They were not prepared to swap sole fish for another type in the seafood basket even though would've paid more. Lady was quite abrupt when we asked... was it really THAT difficult I think not! Having paid $18 for nachos was expecting a decent amount and more than just beans, chips and cheese but no. So all in all very disappointed with food and service.

“Yummy spicy wedges”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

The log cabin is a piece of Hanmer history. For a quick takeaway bite or sour cream and wedges after the pool, it's a great spot. Don't expect flash, just functional.

“Underwhelmed”
Reviewed 11 August 2013

Ordered a burger here along with some chicken nuggets and onion rings. The counter lady was not very friendly, which was a bit of a surprise since most of the people in the area had smiles on their faces.

Burger was fine but the chicken nuggets were pretty small and the onion rings were even smaller.

The food was OK but it's probably worth looking around a bit although there may not be a lot of choices.
