Staff were friendly, knowledgeable and very accommodating.
Food was amazing - highly recommend the shared BBQ Platter.
Birthday notice on the TV screen was a nice surprise.
Thanks to all for a great night !

Really great place to eat. The cocktails were just as expensive as the main meals which was annoying. The food portions were huge and could only eat a small amount. The overall vibe of the place was good, sometimes a little too loud because speaker was right next to us.

The table next to us removed the heater from the centre of the room and put it right next to them, asked two different waitresses to move it back as it was freezing cold and we were on the rooftop never happened. Given it’s the middle of winter there should have been a heater at the end of each table. The food was bland and sloppy. The wine was given in a glass that couldn’t even be held with one hand you needed two hands to pick it up awkward and uncoventional. Toilet upstairs was terrible. The girls on the bar service were nice and friendly.

Drawn in by one of their specialty cocktails (Platform 9 & 3/4s) and knowing they offered hearty meals, we celebrated my husband's birthday with dinner at 5pm on a Saturday evening. Wonderful service, impressive selection of drinks on offer and hearty portion sized meals. All of us from our 12 year old daughter through to the 'birthday boy' thoroughly enjoyed our visit. Doubt it would be suitable for a romantic date due to close tables and busy atmosphere but definitely worth a visit when on the Gold Coast!

I really love going to House of Brews in Surfers Paradise
We really love the House of Brews Lager.
We continue to go back , It was such a perfect setting upstairs on the roof for my partners Birthday get together , away from the noise that's downstairs which is why I planned to sit outside and also the decorating they had set up was absolutely stunning.
It was a bit cold obviously up stairs which is normal for this time of year but I would probably suggest having more portable gas heathers.
Can't wait to go back there again.

Overall we had a pretty great night! Cocktails and beer are delicious. Did have a little accident with the hot faijitas plate, granted it was my error and I was warned the plate was hot from the waitress. However I do suggest doing what other restaurants seem to do with hot plates and have them more centred on the tray(or dining plate) away from the edges. :)

This was my absolute favourite place to come most weekends when you guys had a specific gluten free menu. As I have celiac disease I could come to you guys for a meal and feel safe eating your food. But the night I came for my birthday dinner, the waitress told me you have gotten rid of the gluten free menu and changed the kitchen around so you guys can't assure me the foods safe anymore.. very upsetting 😞 I was a very regular customer but now can't feel safe eating there anymore..

Super impressed with the detailed and creative cocktails! Don’t forget to book! The menu is almost overwhelming with all of the options too- this is never a bad thing! It is easy to spend big here and stay for many hours as we all did...would highly suggest taking a group of 4 or more and get almost one of everything of the menu and share! Great night out and would love to come again :)

Unfortunately the food wasn't that nice. The Jalapeno poppers batter was too thick and not tasty. The hot wings were ok. The dipping sauces were nice but shame about the food. The beer was great though.
