Came here for just a beer tasting flight a few months ago. Their good service encouraged me to come back for their food, and the decision proved worth the effort (and $). Very good food and good service.

The $20 lunch and drink is amazing, especially the ribs. Have been back plenty of times, such a great place. The covered deck is also now really great

The only reason to write this review was that, its services were really professional, not just by one staff, but all 4 we encountered. In today's Auckland service industry, that's a gem! We already had big dinner but just wanted to have a drink. I...More
