Service is welcoming and efficient; the menu is wide and includes some local specials but mainly traditional favourites such as pasta and pizzas. Orders for food and drinks are paced at the separate food and drink counters and the service level is great. All is good value for money. Not haute cusinine by any means but good nevertheless. Worth stopping... More

A great meal. Beautifully cooked and served by warm and friendly staff. We really enjoyed the meal especially the ribs which are one of my husband's favourite meal. Really lovely

We went for drinks, and hoped for food as well, but the spit and sawdust style atmosphere put us off ordering food. The beer was warm, well certainly not ice cold as you'd normally expect in Australia. Not recommended.

As locals, when we eat out, which is regularly, quite often we end up at Mangrove Jacks when we can't decide. Sometimes there is a wait for a table and we have been told over the past few years that you can't book. The last time we went, however, we noticed a lot of reserved signs on tables. ????!!! They...

If you dont want to wait a while you should maybe try somewhere else. We arrived around 7.30 to be told that the waiting time for a meal would be 45 minutes. Every night we passed it was busy later in the evening, suggest to go before 6pm if you want a quick meal. We had the small pizzas which... More

Friendly staff. We went on a very busy evening. Unfortunately chef muddled my gf base and we had to have it cooked fresh. Well worth the wait in the end. A terrific pizza. Special thanks to Krystal for going the extra mile to sort out my order and for the credit voucher for another meal. Five star service and food.

My husband and I had a evening meal here while on holiday, we walked in off the street. While my husband was at the counter ordering a group of six young men came in for a meal and were told it would be 45 minute wait for meals, the fellas turned around & walked out. Our meals came after 35... More

I think I had the BEST Pizza I have ever eaten at this place, and I mean EVER eaten including those I have eaten overseas. It was very tasty, plenty of topping and flavored perfectly. If I owned that place, I'd double that guys wages as most there were raving about the Pizza. Staff in general were very friendly and... More

Having to follow a diet determined by my irritable digestive system, eating out for me means no onion or bread/dough foods which makes it difficult to order a lot of the time. The staff were fantastic and were more than accommodating. I had the chicken and brie pizza (without onion and without a base) and it was amazing! If you... More
