Food was better than it used to be when it was last here. Good to see Cobb and Co back again and doing well. I was a chef at one many years ago and was sad when the quality went downhill but its back and with some of the old favorites still on the menu. Not cheap for a family restaurant as was over $100 for 2 of us but would be a great option for children to enjoy.

Was very good, but did take quite a long time to get meals, we did get a garlic bread for free as it did take ages which was nice.

We enjoyed the meal but was disappointed in the table could have given us a better table away from children the noise level was very high. Next time we will ask for a table away from children’s area

Great service, although food was average and kids were a bit disappointed that the advertised Cobb n co crunchies weren’t supplied.

The service was fantastic, food came out fast and everyone was very friendly and efficient. However, the quality of the food was pretty disappointing and didn’t taste fresh. I won’t rush back there.

Thput it was a bit poor booked for sons 12 birthday and arrived to nothing pther tables clearly had party hat for bday child. We had to ask the waitress. Also wasnt impressed when pepper corns spilt everywhere because top was missing off pepper shaker. Lastly it was first time at cob n co and likely wouldnt return. Felt for a family restaurant way over priced. We will stick to harewood tavern for our famy dining.

We waited a long time for our meals.
But were given a complimentary garlic bread .
Unfortunately when our meals arrived my Cobb snitzel was raw in the middle and i chose not to eat it.
We were not charged for my meal, and staff were very apologetic about this.

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

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

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.
