A group of us went here for Friday evening drinks. Was difficult to get a table as it seems that when there are two people together, it's ok to take a double table up! Anyway, we managed to get a single and moved when there was one available. The tables were sticky and disgusting, in need of a good wash... More

We set ourselves up here on the patio overlooking the South Bank Parklands with some friends and a large group of kids. We were able to watch the kids, drink cold beer, and chat amongst ourselves while the kids ran back and forth between us and the beach. It was a great time. The food was pretty good. The kids...

The manager and function manager (Jane) was extremely accommodating with our large group. A great venue to showcase our city to our overseas visitors. Thank you for a wonderful afternoon.

Zero service at this place. Food is average mass produced pub grub. You go to the counter to order your meal and buy your drinks. Staff do eventually bring random plates of food to your table. The tables are wet and sticky - we went through about 40 serviettes mopping up water from the buckets of beer - what ever... More

Sitting in shade, enjoying a few Pale Ales, watching the many faces of Brisbanes population from the very nice to the very wrong. A great afternoon
