From the outside it seemed like any other restaurant but it was completely different when you walk through the entrance. It was inviting and have such a beautiful open space which you are greeted by a staff at the front counter. We loved the open kitchen concept where you can sit at the bar to see the chefs work their magic. The twist of the old-style booth siting spiced with modern simplicity had my children's approval as they comfy and spacious! As we explored, there were more seatings at the back with a full bar service. We really enjoyed the charcoal chicken, hot chips, pork katsu sando and slaw. We will be coming back for more for sure :)

Love it! Great for our family group of adults and kids. Service is brilliant, and there's something on the menu for everyone. The atmosphere is fun, and unique. We were the last ones to leave the restaurant!

This is the fourth time we have visited Joybird, and as always, it was fantastic. The food and service are consistently at a high level. And the changes in the menu give us an opportunity to try new things whilst still enjoying the classic favorites. It’s our new favorite. ☺️❤️

The experience was ‘average’ - music was so loud we couldn’t hear each other talk which kills any conversations. Second time we’ve had this experience- we won’t be back.

Has potential to be brilliant, just too hot with the open kitchen to be enjoyable. Quality of food good, however for the price would expect more attentive service and better quality crockery, cutlery and atmosphere.

Service and atmosphere were great. Very underwhelmed by the over priced food, the meals came out lukewarm, on the verge of cold, maybe we just got unlucky with the kitchen staff that day.

The food here is always amazing, the staff always friendly and attentive, you always feel satisfied when you leave and you can get a Chardonnay with your fried chicken. Really, what more could you want in life?!? If you’ve never been, give it run, you won’t regret it!

No air conditioning on a 40 degree day and when we asked if the air conditioning was on we got a dismissive answer like we were crazy, just over pretentious waitress that’s all

Little bit noisy and a bit cold, but the food was great and pretty good value. Moist and tasty chicken, crunchy chips, awesome gravy! Cant wait to have the stuffing and gravy butty next time when I'm feeling very skinny!!

We were met by such friendly and professional service staff that we knew we were in for a great dining experience. Having never eaten at Joybird before the service staff helped us navigate the menu, including advice on which cocktail I should choose. We were also impressed by how the chef came and talked through the dishes as he placed them in front of us. We couldn't believe how reasonably priced the dishes were. The music was great and the venue had such a good vibe. Have already recommended Joybird to friends and colleagues. Thank you for a great experience :)

Good food. Moderate sized portions, the char grilled cabbage with pesto and nuts was amazing. Fried chicken with curry sauce melt in mouth. Service was good and attentive just one suggestion maybe they should write orders down, us plus others have said they forgot food when memorizing orders. But would definitely go back.

Very disappointing, went with friends after reading positive reviews. Restaurant was busy and noisy from patrons & loud music. Waitress was busy & not very friendly. The food was also disappointing in that the pork skewers very quite spicy & tough (chewy) not succulent pork belly as we know it and with only a few slices of iceberg lettuce as an accompaniment was poor. One person out of the four of us got a really nice meal!

Unfortunately the experience was spoiled by kitchen staff shouting to each other very close to where people were dining. The food was excellent and the service was very good though.

On arrival, music in the restaurant was really loud & it was difficult to hear the person sitting next to you at the same table.
Food was overcooked.
Service was really average.

I’m sorry but the food wasn’t anything special and we took interstate guests on a recommendation. The toilets smelled, which is a huge negative in a restaurant. We were very disappointed

Overpriced. Underwhelming. Very expensive for a glorified chicken shop with little care and attention to the food. Fast food at mid range restaurant prices. Not worth it. Will not be back.
