Aunty Jack's is Katoomba's hottest new casual space for sharing plates and good times! The restaurant is fully licensed offering a great selection of local tinnies, regional wines and old-school cocktails. The kids will be kept happy with a range of milkshakes and spiders that can be upgraded to a 'big kids' version with any choice of spirit or liqueur.

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 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”

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!

Aunty Jack’s has taken a subterranean diner and made it into a funky club room with great lighting, an awesome menu of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, and a delicious range of southern American-inspired meals, from finger food to proper dinners. Vegetarians are extremely well catered for and the veggie burger is one of the best I have ever had. Their “slack off Sundays” present talented musicians and the staff are super-friendly and switched on. We love Aunty Jack’s!

I love Aunty Jack's. It has the eclectic mix of people that is typical of the mountains. The ambience is great and so is the music. 2 hours of free music on Sundays plus great food and excellent service in a funky 50's style cafe/bar - what more could you want?

3rd time for a slack off Sunday event seeing Rachel Brady and the Moonshine Special. Band as always was great. The staff, their service and venue are great but the limited food menu on Sunday nights is a little poor. Quality of the burgers is ok but not enough to want to pay +$20 for them.

Underground gem. Greeted at the door by friendly staff..a helpful discussion about drinks, then settled into booth. Burgers & chips came quickly..delicious.Caesar salad proved to have the perfect amount of tasty dressing although I'd prefer my egg less chopped.
Music & dancing to Raechel Brady. Fabulous!

Fantastic service, great hearty food. Tasty cocktails and good wine list. And oh my gosh so dietary friendly. Even though theres really only one dish that can be done without onions, its tasty and the staff remembered my dietary needs everytime Ive come in. No need to explain my whole dietary life story dozens of times which is a relief 😀
