“Was a huge favorite with the kids”
Reviewed 23 May 2012

The kids liked the food on the menu, we had a few good steaks in the past, but to let us pay full price for miniature golf after we all had a meal was a bit harsh.

“Waste of time”
Reviewed 26 January 2012

This used to be a great place to go but since being handed back to the ex wife it is hopeless. Service is poor to nonexistent, to the stage that shortly after we walked into the restaurant the only existing customer walked out as he had obviously given up all hope of ever getting his meal. Our breakfast took so long to arrive we nearly did the same and when it did arrive 1 meal was nearly cold. Obviously the CHEF? could only cook 1 meal at a time. Drive through to Manganui and get a real meal.

“Ribs”
Reviewed 12 January 2012

You go there just for the ribs, yummy. Well priced & plenty of other things if you dont enjoy ribs. they even sell the sauce to so you can make the ribs at home for yourself. Massive burgers too.
If you cant find something on theri menu to satisfy you then it would be hard pressed. Also outside dining on fine summer nights.

“Great Food! Excellent Service”
Reviewed 3 January 2012

My husband and I went to Janits on a wet and stormy "summer night" late December.
The staff made us feel welcome straight away, and the food we had was yummy; I had their chicken and mushroom pancakes with a lovely fresh salad, and my husband had their East Coaster, with a range of seafood including the best chowder he has had in a long time.
