It's busy on a Friday night: Went there for the 1/2 price deal for pizzas and had probably a food orgasm (delicious sweet patatoe pizza for 9 AUD). Great! The atmosphere was good, too. Lots of locals, live music and very tasty beer!

The brewery makes great craft brews. You can get a taste paddle that has most the beers to try. Good atmosphere with comfy lounge chairs or a deck for when the weather is nice.

We went on a Thursday night to celebrate my wife's birthday. It was very quiet which was perfect for us but have tried to visit here on a Friday and Saturday night and it's standing room only and no walk-ins without reservations. On our visit, the food was very good with all our steaks cooked to perfection. Sides were sufficient... More

Saturday night dining and the signature dish is not available! Arrived with a table of 10 looking forward to a dry aged steak and there were now available which I believe if you have a signature dish it should be readly available.

My partner had his birthday at The Brewery in December and it was a wonderful night. All our family and friends were well looked after, the food was delicious, live music was great and the drinks were spot on too. It was very impressive! Everyone had such a good time and we really appreciated all the extra efforts from the... More

Dining at the The Brewery's restaurant was an delightful experience. My husband and I were taken out for dinner by his brother and sister-in-law, as a farewell dinner after visiting Townsville for five weeks. We first tried a beer tasting paddle with each of us choosing a preferred beer. We were then shown the dining room and the ambiance was... More

Second time to malt restaurant at the brewery. All meals were perfect again. I mean this place offers 5 star dining in a great location with great service and for very reasonable prices. We had desert this time and were very impressed. The coconut panna cotta is freaking awesome. Can't recommend this place enough.

We decided to have a meal out -- different from our normal cheap and cheerful. Hearing that Malt Bistro had won awards, I rang to see if they had a booking available. The helpful manager told me that since there were only 2 of us, there was no need to book on a weeknight. We arrived at Malt at about... More

The food at this place is to die for. We were actually in the restaurant part of the pub which is called "Malt" and it had a really nice atmosphere. I ordered the pork belly and it was melt in your mouth. My partner got the sirloin and said it was the best steak he had had in a while.... More

Nice ambiance and awesome selection of craft brews. I tried the paddle selection of beers and really liked the golden ale and the irish red ale.
