It's a grill house so has your typical grilled foods but doesn't do some of the standard complements (e.g. Poached Eggs). Prices for the mains are reasonable, though the sides are a little on the expensive side. Food was well prepared and delivered swiftly, though they did mix up my swap outs. Restaurant was warm and had good 70/80s music... More

My partner and I went to Joe's Garage for brunch right in the middle of a rush on a Sunday morning. As we were seated we were told there would be about a 30 -35 minute wait on food and would that be ok? We weren't in a rush so we didn't mind at all. Food order was taken in... More

Slow service as the place was busy with 2 very big groups in. The service was good, staff made a mistake with coffee order but gave us another coffee for free. Good sized meals.

A favourite eating spot, close to home, the atmosphere is always great, and so is the food, and the staff are friendly and helpful (especially when reading glasses are still at home). I normally go for my regular fav feed, though, easy on the old feller when ordering, going here also saves me a job, that of having to prepare... More

I'd heard many good things about this restaurant and was keen to see if it lived up to its good reputation. Yes, it certainly does! The special of the day was bruschetta which was beautifully cooked as an entree, and would love to see this become a regular entree on their menu. My friend and I both had the autobahn... More

Came here for breakfast. Pretty much standard breakfast fare without any twists. Service was good and husbands mochaccino was lovely. Breakfast was in my view disappointing but solid.

With food being a sport for me, I make sure I eat with company that enhances my sporting goals. Having a work meeting during spare time with clients sometimes means a working lunch. This place was a very good place to mix conversation and food. We were given a table away from the main area and had easily two different... More

We came here with a group of ten clients for a Xmas meal. We found the initial bar man that served us to not really be a people person, was coming across as if he was doing us a favour, not the other way round. Some of our party ordered entrees which unfortunately came out with the mains, but the... More
