I visited this venue during happy hour where selected beers were $8. Happy hour runs from 4-6pm week days. It has gone up from $6 when I last visited in September. The outdoor seating is a great spot to sit.

Large meals, Nice menu. Awesome drinks menu. Night time can get very busy and noisy. Seems to be a very popular place for locals particularly on weekends. Lunch time is quieter and service is faster.

So expensive! $30 for 2 scooner sized beers! The interior is drab and reminds me of a beaten down pub you would find in a forgotten outback location. The tables were sticky, it was dark and grey and it just reaked of depression. The guy...serving behind the bar didn't want to be there but the waitresses were accomidating, vibrant and chatty. I'm glad we went across the road for a pizza.More

We loved this place... amazing cocktails and an array of beers. The food was fantastic and such a great place to catch up with friends for a few drinks and some nibbles. The share platters were awesome and perfect when you're just after a light...meal with a fancy cocktail. The staff were all fabulous helping me choose a drink that I'd like and you don't get that friendly service often anymore, so hats off to you guys. Highly recommend to everyone as they even do mocktails so even great for families 😁More

Stopped here for a quick drink and snack and ended up trying the beer paddle and having lunch. The food and service were both really good and the selection of beers was great.

Our server Jolee put together a great selection of beers for the beer paddle and was very knowledgeable on all of the items on the selection. We never felt like we were waiting for service as she would appear at our table any time a...glass was empty ready to offer help in deciding what to try next. The food and drink selection was incredible and we had a great time. Everything we tried was delicious and the presentation is out of this world!More

I called into this Orchard Rd venue during their happy hour where $5 drinks are offered. I had a few happy hour beers. The beers offered are two from Burleigh Heads Brewery range. For beer lovers this bar has many tap choices. Great atmosphere and...I love sitting on the tables located on the footpath for people watching.More

You need to try this place! We went on a Wednesday night at 630pm. 2 adults 3 kids. Straight away, the service was outstanding kind, attentive and all round great by all that we interacted with. Drinks- cocktails were delicious and well presented. Kids drinks...were huge and they enjoyed them! Dinner was very quick for a full house, our entree arrived quickly and was delicious. 5minutes after our mains arrived we demolished everything. Mac and cheese is amazing and the ribs! We were so happy with all aspects of this establishment and wanted to give a tip at the end but they didn’t have that option wish they did as we were extremely happy. Will be back when we visit Australia!More

After a hard day’s work… time to relax, so I came to this place for a meal and a couple of drinks. I liked it, but rather slow, on a busy night. POSITIVES: + Excellent atmosphere all around + Fantastic staff… really an asset to...this place + Décor is adequate for a type of beer brewery + Food was up to speck, so no complaints + Clean and pleasant + Pricing is very fair SO / SO: +/- I know the place was full, but I thought the service was slow. Very pleasant staff, but it took ages for the first drink to arrive, and much – MUCH more time for the food to arrive. Being alone, this is rather frustrating. +/- Bathroom (due to "pigs") was a little under speck for me. +/- I would say that the food quality is rather average. Nothing to write home about, just average. NEGATIVE: - Not really negative points, beside the so/so points mentioned above. SUMMING UP: Yes, I liked this place for the atmosphere, and for the price I paid, I was happy – but, YES… but the time I waited for the food, reduced my rating of this place.More

Went here for drinks with some friends, they took our order, then told us the bar was closing, it was 10pm. Website says they close at midnight. Staff then started packing up tables around us, lights came up…they were clearly shutting down…would have been nice...to be told on entry that they were closing instead of taking our money and expecting us to neck $20 cocktails in 5 minutes. Wouldn’t go back.More
