Everytime we come to the coast (which is often) we ALWAYS come to House of Brews. Value for money, lovely staff, the food is amazing. Weve recommended to all our friends and family who also now go when they stay nearby.

Everything was sticky! The toilet door to enter the facilities, and the mens room was disgusting! Noise level was a bit much also, disappointing really.

Food and service was good but won't be rushing back.

Cocktail menu looked amazing, but prices were very steep for what they were. Service was friendly but a bit slow at the start as we had to ask to order. We were wanting dinner but the food menu didn’t interest us at all so we went elsewhere. Everything was ok, but wasn’t as good as we had hoped.

Can’t wait to go back! Best to book online (due to Covid-19). The more people you have in your group, the more time you can stay. We were a table of 5 and we’re give 2.5hrs. We also had our 2 kids with us who enjoyed seeing the different types of cocktails Mum and Aunty had bought themselves haha. Hubby also enjoyed the 6 paddle beer. And the extra beer of his choice. Cannot wait to go back

The service behind the bar was ordinary. Only one barman seemed to be interested in serving people. We didn't eat however the food that others were ordering looked amazing. The stand out for us was the entertainment. The soloist that was playing was amazing.

We were lucky enough to get a booth for our Fathers Day Dinner, so was very comfortable and semi-private. Food was plentiful. The only gripe was the Mexican salad was a bit bland. Overall a good night. Cocktails were extravagant and tasted just as good as their presentation. We will definitely return again.

Great ambience and delicious cocktails! The cocktails are great value but the food is fairly ordinary bar food and a little overpriced. They played awesome music but our service could have been friendlier. Overall enjoyed our night here and all definitely return to try more cocktails!

I wouldn't go back to House of Brews for the food/meals, my parma was pretty tasteless. Also I asked for the coleslaw to be replaced with salad so it wouldn't cost extra and they brought out both which was just too much to eat and I had to pay the extra. The cocktail was delicious but for $20 could've been in a bigger jar than what seemed like a kids size. Only thing that was worth getting was our fairy floss tower - however I would only recommend ordering this if you have a large group; it was huge! The service was great otherwise, but can't say I'll return.

Drinks were a lot of fun and food was good. Service was slow and yet, every 5 minutes they were asking what else they could get us (even though our other orders hadn't arrived).

Another great night out at House of Brews. Always a favourite for us for a get together as there are so many awesome beers to try and the cocktails are truly fabulous. Our waitress was friendly and around most of the time when we wanted to order more drinks. Already looking forward to our next visit...

The food was good and the wait staff were very attentive, restaurant was very noisy. What let down the whole experience was the heat, the restaurant was so hot, we were all sweating. We ended up leaving as soon as we finished our meals.
