Easy booking and immediate confirmation. We had 2<5 years olds with us and staff were wonderful with them - very engaging and made their night. Food was great and served quickly. Music was very appropriate for the venue and loud enough to cover the twins. A great place to take the family out to dinner - this was for Fathers Day

We were Aunty Ed's for the first time to have a special celebration dinner as a family and we all loved it. Food was lovely and meal sizes were great. My Husband and I also really loved the blast from the past. We had a Great Night and staff were fantastic.
Thanks

The food was warm and hearty, the waitresses were always checking up on us to make sure we were comfortable and they had a friendly competition between each other with serving us. It was a lovely atmosphere for a date with my other half

An excellent Australian restaurant. Great easy to eat menu with a bit of a throw back to the 70’s and 80’s. Similarly the fit out is very 70’s Australia but loved it. A special shout out to the excellent standard of service from the staff.

We enjoyed the evening. Andy Nelson was great. I suppose as a group we talked about how he was a bit background whereas we had come to see him and the food was background... that's not really a criticism just different to what we thought..

We hadnt realised the dinner menu wasnt being served but we were REALLY grateful for the BANGERS and MASH cause it was a freezing cold night.

Your wait staff were AWESOME. A few friends commented that it had been a while since they had been so looked after by waiters. They were chatty and friendly and super attentive and really made it a good night as well as the music and the food.

We had a wonderful dinner at Aunty Jack's! It was Sunday night so there was some great live music. The menu had something for our kids, parents, and grandparents. Our server was so nice and attentive. Highly recommend visiting if you're ever in Katoomba!

Outstanding professional service as always at Aunty Jack’s, the staff are very friendly and attentive. Delicious hearty food and the hot cider is absolutely to die for. Cosy atmosphere and regular live music. Will definitely go again and recommend highly for a meal or great atmosphere even just for drinks and entertainment.

This place was fantastically retro! I loved the ambience of this place. Lots of gf options. We has gf chips, burgers, eaton mess and a fancy gf spider drink. Kids loved it! My only complaint it the riduculous length of time it took for my son's drink to arrive! 3 of us were served drinks (spider, coffee, hot choc), son still waiting, then 10 min later our food arrived, son still waiting on drink, so I asked for the second time 're my son's drink and FINALLY another 10 min later the simple take from the fridge creamy soda arrived after a total of waiting about 30 min. Despite this I'd go back and eat there again as the atmosphere was just lovely.

This was our first visit to Aunty Jacks and it lived up to out expectations. The service was excellent, friendly and efficient. One of our diners had a potential issue with an allergy, and the staff were very helpful and accommodating to select a suitable menu choice. The food was nice, as were the drinks. The atmosphere was informal and relaxing and despite being in a fairly open plan space, the noise level felt quite low. Overall, we would recommend a visit.

We had an absolute blast! Awesome atmosphere, catered very well to everyone’s dietary needs. Our waiter is definitely a stand up comedian as well, the food was delish, the cocktails were on point and the live music was amazing! Thanks guys, see you next year.

We went on a Sunday night - 6 of us including 2 four year olds. Aunty Jacks was a perfect choice. A booth which ‘contained’ the twins, great music - louder than they were. A menu to suit all of us - one a vegetarian and child sized Spider drinks. Amazing staff who were so good with the twins. We had a great, relaxed night out. The 1950’s+ decor creates a great atmosphere and fun to spot “We had that”

What a great space and the service absolutely fabulous, however I have to say the food lets Aunty Jack's down badly. I would recommend this restaurant to friends, but only for drinks and snacks.

We found the service was great (although I think we had a nervous new person who could have smiled more) and there was a very knowledgeable person who chatted to us about the beer selection which was helpful. The live music was nice and the ambience was lovely. The burgers were not great and did not look like the pictures on the website. Little bit expensive for what you got, but I would come and try again another time.

I loved it!
Beautiful atmosphere and simple yet delicious burgers!
The waiters were all kind, the place was full of vintage furniture and decorations. You feel as if you step back in time once you enter the restaurant.
We went on Sunday night and there was live music. It was fantastic and a really joyful environment!
I strongly recommend this place if you are in for a special occasion! And book a table because it's busy!

We came as a family to watch family play at Aunty Jacks. We'd requested a table near the stage and were not disappointed. THANK YOU. We enjoyed some great food and drinks and of course the music. A very enjoyable night for us all.
