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.

Had a great time, it was for my mums birthday and normally she doesn't enjoy places like that. But she enjoyed every second of it. The food was amazing and so were the drinks.

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.

Overall it was good. We had a waiter behind us drop a tray of food and sauce went flying everywhere landing blobs on us and our clothes. We told the waiter and cleaned ourselves up with a napkins and had to grab more from the cashier counter . If I was running that place I would have offered a free drink for the awful mishap. It was like bird droppings had landed on us which wasn't very pleasant. Had this not happened I would have more than gladly rated this place with excellence. It could have been handled a bit better.

Great place to catch up with friends though live music a tad too loud. Service was fast (maybe a little rushed), friendly and efficient. All the food looked and tasted great. Great number of beers to choose from and amazing cocktails. Bit pricey (but you got a LOT of food) and a good time was had by all. The follow up text thanking us for coming was a nice touch : )

It’s hard to beat the quick, efficient and friendly service that House of Brews is known for. I’m a returning customer and have never felt more welcomed when entering and exiting a restaurant! My boyfriend and I loved the buffalo wings and our main meals left us with extremely full bellies! The portion sizes are great value and the overall experience was fantastic, definitely recommend it!

We had an excellent experience with friends visiting from New Zealand.The meals were large and compliments to the chef , food was wonderful.The table service was exceptional, nothing too much trouble.All staff very courteous and prompt.It goes without saying that the cocktails ,as always were amazing.We went to the Blanc Le Blanc show before dinner which was also fabulous.Thankyou to all the House of Brews crew for making our evening out such a memorable one.Hubby and I will be back again soon and I always recommend House of Brews to friends.Last Saturday was the best meal and ambience in a restaurant we have had in a longtime.
I must also compliment you on your after visit communication thanking us for our booking.We have never had that before from anywhere else.Customer engagement and follow up is very important and you guys ticked all the boxes.I am happy for you to use my review in any marketing.

The cocktail menu was 5/5 however the food quality was pretty average. Would recommend if you're looking to go out for a few drinks but head elsewhere for a meal. Very crowded, would be great with about 4 less tables just to give everyone a little more room to move throughout the resteraunt
