Undercooked chicken burgers and steak and I mean raw in the middle. When steak was redone it was so dry and burnt you couldn't eat it. This place was my fav on the Gold Coast with a great outdoor entertainment area, great for the whole family but since changing owners the food is terrible and my family and I won't... More

Holy crap, this was the worst two hours at a restaurant ever, ever. We met our family there to catch up as they were visiting the coast. They had a musical duo playing all during lunch doing karaoke, and it was SO loud you couldn't talk to each other. On top of that the two guys kept going over to... More

Service and food is complete garbage. Raw steak, then comes back 30mins later burnt. 2 x Chicken bacon burgers. Raw, cold ham not bacon, no sauce. Terrible service. No clearing of tables in 2 hours. When you serve Coronas, you don't even have the option or lime or lemon. What a blight on the face of this planet. Snazzy food... More

Could not even eat the food I was served. It was cold chips with cold ham and cold cheese and cold hard sauce on top. Disgusting and not what was described on the menu. Bad service too. Took about 15 mins to get a drink. Will never come back here.

I've worked in a busy pub located in surfers paradise for over 3 years now, and I must say the service and food provided at this establishment was very very poor. The staff here looked like they had no idea what they were doing, with food & drinks etc. We had a table of 20 people, I ordered food for... More

Everyone received their meal except my wife, who's meal arrived 20mins after everyone else's, and only after she went to the kitchen to make sure they hadn't missed her order. I ordered chips and veg with mine, got chips and salad. We've been here 3-4 times and the service always leaves a lot to be desired. But its under new... More

It's a recommended place to visit with family and friends, the crispy salmon was delicious!!! However, the steak wasn't good. I asked medium-rare with mash and veggies and they sent me with fries. They replaced the order but the stake was totally over-cooked. The kids were entertained with the jumping castle and face painting.

This used to be our regular until a few months back. The prices had increased significantly and the food was rubbish. We decided to give it another go, because the atmosphere is excellent and it's great for kids. This trip......great prices, great portion size, steaks cooked to perfection. Service was great. We are stoked to have our local 'go to... More

Seven of us went out for dinner and while the meals were really nice, they all came at different times-a long space of time so we could not all eat together. The meal for our 14 year old - a burger, was delivered to a different table who accepted the food and then she had to wait until everyone else... More

They have such an opportunity to make this great, however it was a waste of 2 hours. We walked in and stood near the wait to be seated sign, the lady in the white shirt and denim shorts looked at us twice, however never walked over so, I walked over to her, she had started a conversation with one of...
