Had a lazy lunch on a Saturday with a friend and had the burger (which was delicious). However, I ordered a schooner of Heineken and was given a schooner of Furphy Lager and told it was “similar”, which it wasn’t even close, nor was it likely the same price. Service was ordinary for the day and despite only being allocated a 90-minute sitting had not been able to order 20 minutes in, and we had to get the attention of a waiter to simply order our first drink and food. Food was quick to come and my friends dietary requirement was handled well. We wanted a second drink and had to flag down a waiter again to order again, despite us both finishing our drinks and food for nearly 20 mins beforehand. Second drinks arrived and the waiter did not clear the table. Table was cleared almost 90 mins on the minute. The sanitizer station at the front didn’t seem to work either.

Overall I’d expect a waterfront establishment that charges $24 for a burger and chips to have more attentive service. Atmosphere was good overall, and I’d probably give it another go.

Service was great and the food excellent. Unfortunately, it was a cold day and the staff would not close the front door when we asked as we were sitting near there. So we ate and left. Would have stayed longer but just too cold.

Took a long time to take our first drinks order. Then waited for over 40 minutes to put a second drinks order in after we finished our meal. Someone came over to us twice but they were unable to take the order. In the end we just got up and left without ordering.

21st birthday for our daughter. The occasion was slightly awkward due to the restrictions but the team tried really hard to make the night enjoyable. In particular the guy who was the host for the night was excellent with a great manner and humour. The food was good and served in a timely manner and the drinks were enjoyable and served promptly.

Made the booking but came in and no table was reserved for us. Showed the booking number etc. was given a great table but was told we had to leave before the booking at the table we were given showed up.... wasn’t our stuff up, shouldn’t have been told we had to leave by a particular time. Entrees were amazing, mains not so much.

Food was good, tasty and well presented....service was overwhelmingly friendly and prompt....the main issue was the length of time between the main meals being delivered to our table....there was only 5 of us and firstly 2 x mains arrived, 5 minutes later the other 3 mains came and 5 minutes after that a bowl of chips was delivered..

I ordered the Calamari which came soggy at the bottom of a salad overpowered by sesame oil. Ordered the kids chicken for my daughter which had a sharp shredded piece of clear plastic in it. When I told the waitress about it she didn’t even apologise just asked at what point during the meal I found the plastic and what I wanted her to do about it. I suspect she thought I was fishing for a refund when I just wanted to make them aware so someone else didn’t get a sharp piece of plastic lodged in their throat. She was just plain rude. My salad was inedible, the boys had burgers which they liked but I won’t be going back.

Yes I would recommend the Edge. It was extremely busy when we went (thank goodness we booked!) however they were staffed adequately and we did not have to wait too long for food or drinks. I thought it was priced quite well. We will return for sure. Thank you for the opportunity to review the Edge.

We have been to Edge before hence returning. However our dinner on Friday was revolting. My gnocchi dish was watery as if it had been defrosted and the gnocchi itself was quite hard.
My husband has the Parma which he found to be really dry and the sauce tasted like nothing but a salty passata.
We're easily pleased diners, but this outing just turned out to be expensive and disappointing for us.
