Great beers, good ambience. Must visit the fridge loo! Small so get there early if there are a few of you. Best seats at the window for people watching and sipping in the sunshine

My wife and I visited Atlas on the recommendation of our Kiwi guide who said they had the best steak in town for $20. Less than the price of some burgers in pricey Queenstown! She was spot on - the steak, fries, and salad were all great and perfectly prepared. The menu and the number of tables are very limited,... More

Had the burger with mac and cheese, and a ginger beer. Was sooo yum! It's super central to everything with a great water view 👌🏼🙌🏼

This is predominantly a craft beer bar and seating is very limited. But dont be put off because you need to try this steak. A common rule there is to ask for it cooked one more than you usually like because of how thick it is i.e if you want rare, order medium rare and it should be cooked how... More

Tried the steak here. Very good choice and reasonably priced as well. Beer or coffee also available - dine inside or out.

Great local craft beers, small bar but plenty of room outside, covered if necessary. Plenty of local and guest craft beers, relaxed atmosphere, sunny area outside with views of lake and right next the the Earnslaw dock. Had breakfast another day, good food and price and cool place to relax

Besides arguably serving the best steak and fries in Queenstown, the wide range of beers, the excellent outside area and the friendly staff ensure this is the local's favourite. The value for money when you order their legendary steak and fries is unbeatable, and 'steak at Atlas' has become a byword for a great start to an epic evening. You... More

Small but nice pub near the water in queenstown. Many different varieties of tap beer which was great. Not so much variety in the dinner mains - only 4 dishes really - but plenty of tapas. Overall a very nice experience. Would definitely return.

Popular spot for locals, heard a lot of good opinions about their steak. I normally go there for breakfast and had bruschetta before which was really yumm! Wide range of beer, pretty pricey tho (but the pints are bigger than elsewhere) I love mochas and I have to say that the mocha i had at atlas is probably the best... More
