Wished we stayed home. Pizza and nachos were terrible. What Can I say pizza base half cooked and no flavour, nachos were cold paid extra for pulled beef hardly there and again no flavour and so dry.

I've had awesome food and average food, the serving sizes are generally not reflected in what you pay. I've paid plenty and got little, I've paid little and got plenty, it really is the mixed bag, great location and great service.

Inviting spot for families. Cheap drinks as you would expect from an RSL and the meal prices are reasonable compared to one or two other options in the area. Nice views of the estuary so its a good choice for a relaxing and laid back lunch.

Great value for food, nice view and the staff are very friendly. Another bonus was that they run a shuttle bus and it will pick you up from your hotel and take you home.

Had dinner with a large group of cyclists riding through the region. Nice food, reasonably priced but on Saturday nights you'll be waiting more than 30 minutes for your mains because the place is soooo busy. But that's a good thing if patronage is high because it's a vote in favour of the establishment.
