This was great value to get a cheap dinner for the family. Absolutely nothing wrong with the food but you clearly get what you paid for...A $10 steak and chips is just that...A steak and chips...It needed sprucing up with mustard and salt. Lovely vibe at the venue. If you need a cheap way to feed arrive this works.

We had the $10 steak which costs $15 if you want veges and pepper sauce. The steak was good - nice and tender and cooked to order. A little small but you can't complain for the price. We paid extra for the veges which were a bit disappointing. A small bowl of plain steamed veges. Overall pretty good value and... More

Massive big meals, just so tender, very well presented, the prices are a plus, not expensive for meals, but so well presented, you definitely couldn't eat it all, amazing Chef... great security, felt safe, and the staff are so funny and friendly. Highly recommend.

Had a few pints and some nachos here whilst looking for somewhere (anywhere!) on the Gold Coast that was showing some rugby union. They were, so I watched (I was the only one not watching the Aussie rules games!) ate and drank.

Popped in for a beer and bite to eat with some workmates. The highlight was the steak I ordered which was perfectly cooked to order and used quality beef. Not sure how they manage that for the cheap price involved. Hats off to the chef!

My wife and I ate here on Australia day. We got a table outside, as we were assured by staff that no smoking was allowed. Interestingly, there are notices everywhere that there is a ‘Public Holiday surcharge’ of 15% on all food and drinks. This is applicable at all eating / drinking establishments. Both of us decided on the same... More

Great place to meet and enjoy a few quiet ales - except for the periodic song and dance carcophony from the clock tower chiming every hour. Would hate to live next door but a novelty when experienced first time. Food basic, friendly service. Steak was like shoe leather.
