Husband and I went for a quick dinner on a Wednesday. Tables were so close together that it was hard not to knock elbows with the person nex door. Noise level was off the charts. It was impossible to have a conversation. Food was pretty average. Very disappointed as we had been told it was a great place to go.

Took family and friends to the Eating House for her birthday. We brought along the cake were advised there is a service charge of $5 per person for the cake. What a damn cheek and ripoff. Havew paid $5 at others but not person. Will not go there again. PS, the meals were OK.

Great place and busy on a Monday night. Although no logic with the following lack of customer service; Cashier happy for me to pay for my food with paywave. The others had cash. The problem was I had to leave before the rest of the table. There was no way he was going to let me pay wave when I... More

My daughter and I came at 6pm on Mother's Day without a booking, hoping to get a quick meal on our way home after a busy weekend. The gentleman that greeted us was super friendly and said I'll see what I can do and came back a minute or two later and said 'yes, I have a table, but it... More

I'm a regular at Eating House and any time I go it's extremely busy. I can see why as the meals are delicious, the service fast and the atmosphere is always great. I highly recommend you book a table though as you may be disappointed if you walk up during peak times.

As a local, been here many times. Breakfast is my favourite! Large group dinners are a bit lacking on service but food whether eating in or take away is great!

Busy Saturday night and the place was packed. Waited at the bar and had a drink while we waited for friend. Good beers. From that point on our experience was on the decline. Service took forever to get service, food took long too. Look promising but did not deliver. My steak was overcooked. Did not want to wait for another.

We have dined here several times. It has always been a pleasant experience. The food is always quite satisfying. We usually order a handful of entrees for the table to share. On this occasion, we decided to try out some different ones. Although delicious, the serving sizes were inconsistent. It is unfortunate that due to the busy nature of this... More
