    Great atmosphere but I’m just not a fan of ordering on an app. Ruins the vibe of service. But food was great, good music, fun atmosphere.

    Great burger place on the coast with good vibe. Little bit pricey for burgers, and most don't come with chips, but very tasty

    This was the second time I have dined at longboards for lunch and unfortunately the experience was not great. There was 3 or us, we ordered 3 drinks, 3 burgers and chips - everything came out a different times and the burgers were cold. The restaurant was not busy, otherwise I would have understood the mismatched timing. Disappointing, we won’t be back.

    3/10 average service and food…. App driven service… surcharges on everything…. Food came out lukewarm… although favours where good…. Staff running backwards and forwards to and back to the kitchen… not knowing which table to take the food to…. Food sitting to long under food lamps before being delivered to the customer’s

    Great night out, happy with food and drinks in general. A little disappointed that everything on the menu was not showing available via the me&u app, however the options we did go with were tasty & generous. Word of warning - the ring burner chicken burger IS HOT (not a complaint, I loved it!)

    Booked for a group of 7 last minute and was glad we got a table. The hangover platter was awesome value and was more than enough for 3 of us for dinner as we were not that hungry after having a big lunch. Food was nice. Service was fast and staff were friendly. The fans were great at keeping us cool too. Would come here again when we visit GC next time.
