We had a great meal here. Brilliant service, great food at an inexpensive price. My wife & I had hake which was delicious. I couldn't believe how cheap it was to eat here, we really enjoyed our evening.

Nothing better than enjoying your day at the beach and having a restuarant within walking distance to 're-fuel'. Mom and Dad can relax while kiddies play in the secluded outside play area.

We enjoy eating at Something Good because the food is great, so is the service. The grandchildren LOVE the icecreams.

Remember the old Something Good roadhouse which has been converted to a restaurant with great sea views. Selective menu and the Cajan Calamari was excellent. Good service.

Had a lovely relaxed afternoon. Food was great, I will definitely be back for more homemade lemonade & carrot cake. Don't dine here if you are in a hurry, service is very slow.

A friend and I enjoyed a very reasonable priced lunch there recently. The cost of the meal with a drink each was only R195. Being very open it was warm under the 'tent' but very enjoyable. The venue is very popular with students from the varsity and offers live music Thursday to Sunday evenings.

Everything you ant from a family restaurant. Kids play area away from other diners. Great live music on Thursdays ( maybe weekends too - not sure). On a good weather day sitting on the deck is unsurpassed. The menu is great.... a bit too extensive maybe making choice difficult, but there definitely is something for everyone- even protein shakes.

I really enjoyed the atmosphere here, on the few occasions I've been to Something good. The food has been really good! The only gripe I had was the slow service, waiting time for food was a little longer and the waiter didn't come around afterwards to check on us. It is quite busy most of the peak times and that's...

We had breakfast there several times and I was shocked how bad the service was the last time we were there. We sat down during the triathlon that is being held there most Saturdays. We waited 50 minutes for our breakfast, they said our food was delayed because of a big birthday group. I am also working in the hospitality... More

Something Good Roadhouse situated on the idyllic Pollock Beach in Port Elizabeth. Perfect stop before or after a stroll along PE's golden beaches. We serve breakfast, lunch and dinner with a large menu catering to all tastes. A popular family destination with fantastic kiddies attractions and live music most evenings. We also offer the original roadhouse option with waiters serving customers in their cars. Attached to the roadhouse you will find our speciality ice cream parlour that makes our famous milkshakes. We look forward to welcoming you to Something Good.
