Meals weren't value for money. Schnitzel was over cooked as was kids chicken. No meat on the ribs. Very disappointed in food overall.

Everything was fine except they forgot the children’s Cobb crunches.
All else was good.

Food was tasty, but so was the KFC we had after dining at Cobb n Co. We ordered a cob loaf and a main each. Food to be fair was tasty, just not enough of it and sadly we left hungry. For the price we paid - $90 for a cob loaf, a pork and fish main, 1 alcoholic and one soft drink ( so quite pricey ), the Lonestar offers similar menus and prices with near double the quantity.
Sorry to say we won't be back

Music too loud and made conversation difficult.
The crumbed schnitzel was over cooked. The lemon tart had little lemon taste. The crunches were hard and dry.
Service was good, he kept checking.

Ordered lambs fry and bacon and was very disappointed Was not like anything I remember and just gravy seemed to be the main dish. Also the price was very expensive for a senior meal and sorry this is just not like the old Cobb and Co I remember

I liked my drink I ordered. It was huge and really nice. Was really surprised when my drink came out as a slushy in it instead of normal juice but all good. Another person on my table ordered a Traffic Light drink and didn't know it was a slushy drink she thought it was normal juice. So does all the juices have slushy in it?
Overall the meals were huge and really nice.

The Staff were quite pleasant, the place was FREEZING. My Friend and I went for the Lambs Fry and bacon on the Gold Card menu. It was slopped on the plate and looked and tasted most unappetising. My Friends meal had blood in her lambs fry and it was seeping into the “gravy. The Lady on Reception gave us $20 worth of vouchers each which wasvery kind of her, but we will not return .

Hi Brian! Sorry to read about your experience mate. We have since fixed our heating system so the restaurant should be nice and warm again. It sucks Brain, as that lamb's fry is such a good dish when prepared to out strict quality specifications. I'm glad to hear the team provided some vouchers for ya, and hope you will come and give us another crack in the future.

Expensive for what it is. Meal had no flavor, chicken was over cooked and pasta was under cooked. Disappointing

Hey Jaz! The quality of the products we use and the systems we have in place to prepare and cook from fresh each day is what has set our prices to what they are, and when meals are cooked to the strict quality specifications we have in place, our teams couldn't be prouder to place our meals in front of our guests. It sucks we didn't deliver this to you that day and we apologise we didn't meet your expectations. If you are ever back our way Jaz, we hope to nail it for you then.

Great place for a family dinner. A little pricy but the food and service was outstanding.

Our waitress Jordyn was amazing!

The music was a little loud but that’s a personal thing, the selection of music was really good.

I was excited to eat at Cobb seafood chowder and roast pork, and lambs fry and bacon and chocolate sundae. The service was really friendly and prompt just a shame the food wasn’t great for 3/5 of our party.

Food was miserable, cold, undercooked and the price is high compared to a lot of places.
Wemt back after a year before when we had a similar experience. Got a $50 voucher as compensation then. Only went back before the voucher expired, shouldn't have bothered. Wouldn't recommend
