Like most places in nice locations, they don't need to try hard to get people in the door, and the average food is a testament to that. The burgers are fine, but nothing groundbreaking. Wouldn't come back unless I had to.

All the draft beers on sale and there were into double figures were all from Mac's brewery. We had a couple of light beers and they were very good.

Alright for a quick swallow. Macs is average compared with the rest of boutique beers available in Wellington. Waterfront location is a bonus but you get spoilt for choice. Barman was friendly and suggested a Sassy red which was appropo for the weather and season.Top...More

Great place to begin the night. Plenty of seating and friendly prompt service. Always good. Lots of beers on tap showcasing the Macs range.

The draft beer selection is very good and I tried a couple different ones. The service was horrible and each time I had to get up from the table and go to the bar for service.

We called in for lunch on Saturday and it was warm and cozy inside. We ordered from the bar menu and it arrived quickly. It was just bar food burgers, wedges etc but was hot and tasty. No complaints here.

They can't even get basic French Fries right. Half cooked potatoes. Even with feedback and specific instructions, more half cooked potatoes. Makes me wonder what sort of food poisoning risk the rest of the menu is if they can't cope with even the most simple...More

Definitely no reservation needed but if you want to make sure that you have a table you should send them an email. I hope that will help. Cheers
