    Awesome day out. Nice lawn, plenty of room for kids to run around, enough shade cover, and of course the food and drinks are great value. It's an easy place for a group catch-up.

    Hi I'm not usually a Karen but I found the visit very confusing. I booked a table and I couldn't find a person to show me to it, or kick me off in attendance. You need a sign at the front door or something (I had to chase someone down to figure it out) Then to order there was no icecreams or pastrys left. So we orded some simple teas but it literally took 20min for the lady to make them 😑 I had two little ones... so standing around waiting for a few cups for 20mins wasn't ideal... perhaps you could implement as buzzer system so we could at least sit back down... or table waiting 💁🏽‍♀️ There was also heaps of people queuing up and the staff seemed quite unorganised and verry slow. (Even though they were very polite and trying their best)💞. Other than that the ambiance was great. (But I will mention we had to move to the grass hill as the music was wayy too loud to the point where we couldn't hear eachother speak 😆) we are young people by the way/ love loud music, but for a chilled sunday afternoon it was a little bit too much. Xx ok thanks for listening. We just really love this place and hope to see it possibly improve. It's come so far and it is super popular place, I guess you just have implement some structures that keep up with customer demand 👍👌🙌🏻 (which isn't a bad problem to have) xx Xx Big love Sar

    We went with family and friends who live locally to Murray’s. We queued for half an hour to purchase drinks (2 x staff in bar). The txt for good said it would be ready in 25mins. It took two hours and our ribs ($85) was cold. Great ambience! Music was great. We will come back again as we have been many times but this trip was disappointing. I appreciate it was very busy and staff may have been overwhelmed.

    The staff were rude and unhelpful. The poor woman at the cash register was being slammed. Our order took over an hour because we paid cash and they lost the docket, it was only that I went up to check on our order that they put it through again. It was not a great birthday lunch for my mum. Maybe if you went during a quieter time it might be enjoyable but we won't bother again.

    Drove an 2 hours to have the table we booked taken over by someone else. We froze, love Murrays but this experience was disappointing. When a persons name is on a table those people should be asked to relocate. I even rang ahead whilst travelling to check table ok.

    Quite an expensive day. Drinks very over priced... Daughter ask for 8 coffee martini's and it was truly an effort for them to make for her, than they inflated the cost. We had made an effort & went in the day before to discuss seating as we had children attending. one in a wheel chair & one in a pram plus 4 extra and 8 adults, we agreed on an area . When we arrived we had been moved to two separate tables & told we could not move to another table or move the tables together, this was a very big disappointment as we like to include all the children when dining together. On the plus side the grounds are very lovely and the shop has some wonderful merchandise on offer. Sorry to say we can't see ourselves rushing back to soon for an family gathering.

    Being put on a table directly in front of the singer in the full sum is not a way to encourage people. The noise was terrible and the hundreds of people standing in line to get drinks was also off putting. I know it was the Easter break but we had booked and we were seated on the deck with a tiny market umbrella for shade which couldn't be moved (we tried). We left. We didn't wait and we came back to Anna Bay where we had a very good meal in the shade and without the music blaring. I understand that the musician had to reach people way up on the grass but to sit people directly in front was ridiculous. One of the reasons we left was that we couldn't hear each other and the other was the fact that you can only order through a QF scanner. The eldest person in the group is 73 and he gave up, couldn't understand the directions and he's not stupid, he was a bank manager prior to retirement. When we booked we were not given the opportunity of where we were going to sit and we would have liked a description of the site to make a more informed decision. Unfortunately Murrays won't be seeing us again.

    We were very disappointed with our whole 'experience' at Murray's on the 27th of March 2022. The drinks are crazy expensive (2 beers for almost $28?!) - especially when it was a beer brewed inhouse. We certainly would have had more than 2 each if it was a little more reasonably priced. The items on the menu sounded good - but the menu itself was just stupid. The only preview photo they had was of nugget sand chips and something else on the kids menu. No other previews. Also, in the pizza range, every pizza started with ''Woodfired Gourmet Pizza cooked to..." and then you had to click the 'more' button to read what the pizza actually was! Seriously does no one proof this? And every single pizza's photo was a Murrays Brewing Company logo. Again - does no one check this? We ordered two Italian Sausage Pizza for $28 each. They were a 'reasonable' size, but saying the toppings were sparse would be a compliment. We had 3 tiny pieces of sausage mince on each slice. The pizza was tasty, but $28? No way. These are like the $15 ones you get at the markets on a Saturday night. This is the first time we've all been back since December 2018. Back then it was really hot and there was really no where to escape the heat. Lunch was miserable because it was so damn hot. This time it was pouring with rain. And we were very 'lucky' to be seated in the gazebo. But there were countless others under little table umbrellas braving the rain. For the price that's charged here, having a nice, undercover eating area should be a priority. I'm not sure why it was never done after the place burnt down. Would I come back? Probably not. I think there's better value in a lot of other places. Port Stephens always has this 'Bay Tax' that the local joke about, but it's a real thing. You pass through the round-a-bout to Lemon Tree Passage and a huge 'Bay Tax' is added to everything. It's a shame. You have so much potential.

    Great atmosphere , food was delicious and generous sizing . Was a humid day so quite hot sitting at the tables under the marquee area but once we ate we moved to the timber tables near the play area . Play area could do with a revamp. Was confused with purchasing of wine - purchased one bottle , went to get another only to be told they weren’t allowed to sell it ? It was on the menu as a bottle option . Drinks are on the expensive side . But overall it is a great venue with lots of options for dining and plenty of seating and shaded areas for kids . Will certainly go back .

    Food was good just a little pricey. A staff member was very rude to me. I had made a booking for 8 and I was seated at a table of 4. When I found a floor staff member she told me I should of arrived earlier (I was on time for my booking) she told me I should go sit up at the picnic tables. When my friend had originally organised her booking there were so many of us as it was for a farewell. That we needed to book separate tables. I was told to grab my friends and head to the picnic tables to free up tables on the deck. We were finally seated on the deck. The same lady was clearing our tables and was rude each time. I understand hospitality as I also work in the field. But there was no need for her rudeness

    So disappointing. It was the worst restaurant I have ever been in Australia. Food menu at 12.00 pm was reduced to basically nothing due to sold out items. Food was served in take away boxes with disposable cutlery. Drinks were served in plastic glasses apart of beer and don’t understand why. It was so embarrassing to bring my friends there. Absolutely shocking! I am so disappointed I gave my money to this business. Shame on you people!

    We did not stay for lunch. After paying $32 for two drinks (bourbons with coke, both of which just tasted like coke, so essentially we payed $32 for watered down coke!) we decided not to waste any more of our money. There wasn’t a great selection of food. Was hoping to be able to get a nice salad for lunch but there wasn’t any on the menu.
