Located on the Riverside Quay, close to the Eureka Skydeck 88. Very tasty steakburger with a couple of beers. Large terrace, friendly staff. A place to visit and to revisit.

I walked in tonight and asked the barman for the thickest, darkest most delicious black beer he had. He ran me through a bunch of choices and gave me taste tests of each. Great service and delicious

$11 for a pint on tap - nice enough selection but not great value in my mind. But others clearly don't agree as it was busy. I can't comment on the food.

My wife and I stopped here for a drink after a long day of sightseeing. This place is in a nice location and always seems to be busy. They have lots of outdoor seating some of which is in the shade which is what we wanted. Once you get your drinks and sit down it is a very relaxing experience.... More

Awesome experience from the moment we walked in. Staff are fabulous, the 3 of us polished off our meals, beer is nice (a little expensive), desert was great.

Saturday night in South Bank very busy walked one street back and found this very welcoming restaurant. The pate is made inhouse and worth it but the mussels are to die for. Please step one street back and enjoy this great place.

Had to have a quick lunch because we were going on a trip. The restaurant had an express lunch which was super quick. We both had the steak sandwich which was really good.

Headed here through a recommendation as we were looking for local craft beers. Came for drinks at 2pm odd & ended up staying for dinner till 8pm. Nice gastropub with both indoor & al fresco dining.
