Several choices so opt for Pizza, good value, not too long to wait for the food to arrive given that it was a large group.

We went twice during and after happy hour. Drinks and delicious dinner were great value with a solo artist thrown in both nights. Would go back anytime.

We visited during our stay and were here for happy hour and dinner. The staff could be a little bit friendlier, felt like I was interrupting their socialising a little. Food was ok but not great for the price charged. Also went to get takeaway coffee the next morning and was told at 10:30am that they could not serve me... More

Pizzas ok . Tried natchos, terrible no meat. Service was good and location very good. Flies are major problem when dining. Happy hour very good.

Ordered a pizza, it came out not described as on menu so sent it back. Next day tried again and there was a storm so couldn't order food as the tills were not working so it couldn't communicate with the kitchen! What's wrong with a pen and piece of paper?? Funnily enough they could still take your money for beer!... More

Have been going to Hawks Nest all my life and often visited the old HN lodge, but this place was nothing like the old. A good choice of beers and wines and good pub level food. The coffee was not as good, the flat white I ordered on my first visit was average at best and the iced coffee on... More

Is one street back from the beach. Happy hour is a must between 5 & 6pm along with the bar snacks. Good choice of craft beers along with the usual. Pizzas are good to finish off happy hour whilst sitting back and watching the world go by.

Had a couple of lunches here, both times the food was excellent from fish and chips to pasta, everyone I was with enjoyed their food. Service is good quite quick in fact. Just read the drinks list because I could of had a jug of coke for 10 dollars were I was buying them by a glass at 3:50 dollars.

On a very hot day we stopped here for lunch in the cool sea breeze and a relaxed environment. A very busy place but supper meals , we had a very yummy bruscheta pizza and a salad. Would not hesitate to eat here again.

Alarm bells were ringing when we saw it was nearly empty at 10am on a Saturday in the school holidays, but we were starving so we risked it. The girl at the counter was lovely, very friendly and welcoming and that's where the positives end. Our waitress looked like she not only didn't want to be there but didn't want... More
