Went in for a quick bite after work. Sat at the bar but the place looks great for a dinner date. Gabi was behind the bar and was super helpful with some menu and drink recomendations. Had the dirty bird (big fan of fried chicken)...and it was delicious! Will definitely come back for some chicken and waffles for brunch sometime.More

We were excited to get out for the evening. There was a one-man band that was so loud we could not hear each other talk. My partner had chicken and waffles and it was good. I ordered the hot mess, it was a mess. The...coleslaw they topped it with was horribly bitter when I took that off of my brisket it really wasn't much of a sandwich. I ordered a non-alcoholic drink that came with alcohol in it. Someone else ordered french fries and they got french fries and gravy he didn't want gravy, he doesn't eat gravy. So one out of three people were happy.More

Try the burgers! They are so unique and delicious! The bartender was so kind to give us ideas on how to best enjoy Nelson. They have creative drinks and a nice selection of craft beer.

We stopped here for drinks after seeing all of the good reviews. My husband had the Smokey Old fashioned which he loved. Nice beer selection. I can’t comment on the food, but it smelled delicious. Our waitress was lovely and gave us a lot of...great recommendations for the Nelson area.More

Visited in November 2022 and again now in December 2023. Honestly this restaurant is phenomenal. I'm a big foodie who has eaten at top restaurants all over the world. The quality and flavour of the food at Broken Hill is 10 out of 10. Beef...Carpaccio is my go to starter, Broken Hill's Beef Carpaccio beats my favourite so far which was the Italian restaurant of a 5 star hotel in Abu Dhabi. The textures pleasing and the ingredients flood your mouth with flavour, but importantly, all complement, not over power the beef. - it's simply delicious. The memorable smoked ribs and delicious home made sauce from last year was a side this time round, set aside to try a new item on the menu, Smoked Duck leg. It was just sensational. We came back 5 days later to eat exactly the same meal all over again. I highly suggest this restaurant gets in touch with Michelin and looks at the process of achieving a Michelin Guide Recommendation. The food is most definitely to the standard required for such an accolade. I can't wait to visit Nelson and Broken Hill next year. Book your table, You won't be disappointed!More

Great food and really nice staff. The manager, who originates from the UK, checked on us often while we were eating. Our guests enjoyed the chicken and waffle dinner. Best burger I have ever eaten. It was cooked to perfection and served with beef au...jus. Burger is called SLAM DUNK BURGER.More

Best brunch in town! Been living here for 3 years and can’t believe I just had my first brunch here. Amazing beats and top end service by Anna. Chris and the kitchen staff created a masterpiece of a Caesar to kick off my Saturday. Something...about chicken and waffles at 11am hits different. 10/10 and highly recommend. Definitely a must for anyone visiting the area.More
