Well, it was better that 2 weeks ago - I did not have to wait for a seat.

Food was good also, after waiting 30 minutes for it to arrive.

The food was delicious and the staff were so friendly and helpful. Price was a bit more than other local taverns but the quality of the food was worth it. We will be coming back.

My family, friends and I very much enjoyed our lunch at Panama Jacks Steak & Rib House. The Menu was ample and varied, and the prices fair. All the dishes we chose were generous serves, and delicious - the steak, the fish, the pizzas all went down well. The service was very good and friendly, from the entrance to the restaurant being checked in, to the table and bar service, and ordering counter. Our table was in what is called 'the open' - a lush garden area, and under cover. It was a beautiful ambience and very relaxing. I would certainly recommend Panama Jacks, and I look forward to a return visit one day soon.

Overall great. But the order of the steak. Think it was 40 dollar meal and the steak was over cooked and dry

Other than that was good and the service was great

I ordered the 600g T bone Steak, med - well done, with veges & chips.
35 minutes later (?), the T bone Steak arrived with beans & carrots - no chips.
T bone steak was med - rare, not cooked properly.
Disappointed with the restaurant, again.
If it happens again, on the third time, I will no longer have a feed there...

Me and my partner both had medium rare steak it looked and tasted as if it were boiled.
We also had pork ribs and it wasnt falling off the bone like other places i have eaten at.
Food came out just warm and waiting time was long

Went for the Tuesday night schnitzel. Absolutely fantastic as always, and how good it is to have a real chicken schnitzel presented on the plate and not one of those frozen ones. The meal was delicious well cooked and the service exceptional. Well done BRT if I could give u 10 stars I would.

BBQ ribs were boiled instead of Bbq'd with a bit of BBQ sauce on them. Steak was fatty. Overall the menu made the food sound better than it actually was. Really the food is just overpriced pub food. Would not go there again.

Customer service was excellent. My sons were constantly complaining about an irritating buzz sound. I could hear it at times but not as loudly as they did. The pizzas had little pineapple on them. I liked the layout of the tavern. I didn’t like sitting so close to other tables.

The staff were so friendly and the service we received was outstanding.
Our schnitzel we had was a decent size, so delicious and great value for money.
Always lots to choose from on the menu as well as a variety of specials offered. Highly recommended.

Great value food - pizza and wings night, my son in law loved the fact that he could choose sides on his meal and he doesn’t eat salad😂, also said the patty was delicious.

There were 2 of us and 1 person received their entree 20 mins after the other one with the main meal.
The entree was thai fish cakes that were bland and could only taste potato and the sauce didn't compliment it at all.
The seafood basket had 2x tiny pieces of fish, 2 prawns, 2 scallops, 2 tiny pieces of calamari, chips and a side salad for $32.
The pasta was only half cooked in the seafood pasta dish
A very ordinary and unpleasant meal.

We were very disappointed. We ordered STEAK Sandwiches minus the bread because you don't have Gluten Free Bread. We were given Roast Meat instead of steak and when they asked how the meal was and we told them they said Oh you should have told us earlier. If you don't have the product and you are substituting it is courtesy to advise people not just give them a second rate substitute. We usually eat there at least monthly and the food is fine, but this time you score a zero as it was not what we ordered - rather a cheap substitute.

Other than not having a seniors menu available, which is difficult when you have an elderly parent who can't eat big meals anymore, it was a good experience. I wanted to get grilled fish for my Mum whose diet is somewhat restricted but wasn't able to get it as apparently everything was pre-crumbed or battered, this is a shame because it made her dining experience less enjoyable.
