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.

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 😀

My beef patty in my burger was red ROAR!! Waitress said it was the beetroot bleeding through the meat. Sorry it was ROAR!! and totally uncooked. No offer to replace or throw on the grill for a few minutes.
Chicken wings uncooked again with blood close to the bone.

Well decorated pub experience in the 60's, 70's style, and include such amusements as knitting and games. Great to use different chairs and sofa's from that era too. Good ambience and waiting staff are great, cheerful and helpful. Enjoyed our two Sunday evenings with the live music. Thanks.

Aunty Jack's is a local spot that offers great classic food, fun live music acts, and amazing snacks and cocktails. It's built to resemble a kitschy living room and the staff are so friendly you'll feel right at home. The burgers are really tasty and the shakes are super delicious. Every time I come here I have to get the peach cobbler for dessert - it is simply perfection with every bite. Thoroughly recommended!

I love the eclectic ambience at Aunty Jack’s plus the great free music on Sunday evenings. And the menu is great, the portion sizes generous and the retro drinks are great fun. It’s a great place to just kick back and chill, or have a dance when the music is right. And the service is fabulous too! Well done all!

Hi Digs, We're sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your experience, and again we apologise for accidentally leaving the burger on the bill. Our burgers are well cooked however the fresh meat and spices in our housemade patties will always remain pink even when cooked right through. Cheers, Aunty Jack's team.

Efficient and friendly staff! Fantastic live music for Slack-Off Sunday!
The ONLY shortcoming was the coffee...flat white contained more froth than a latte and the long black was expressed too long making the coffee bitter.
