Like the atmosphere and the food is very good. We had the fish, I had mine grilled as I can't have gluten. Hake was the best I have every had. Hope to be back.

We went there for lunch with family. The food is what you would expect from a "Roadhouse", service was not too bad, although not the greatest. Burgers, chips, schnitzels etc.

The service we received form waiter Jurgens was great. The food however a completely different story. Everything was fried to death and had the same overly spicy taste. Will probably not be back. Such a waste of a great spot.

Really awesome venue, great views. Foods average and service is very slow. Pity because if they got it right it could be one of the best in PE.

Fish and chips were ordered. The fish was fresh and very tasty, but the chips were old, dry and stale. On complaining to the waiter, the youngster had an attitude which makes him unfit to serve the public.

They do serve breakfast daily from 8am to 11am with the exception of Mondays when they open at 11am. I have however not had breakfast there thus can not comment. I have loaded a photo of some of the breakfast items offered.

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.
