    Surprisingly suboptimal last night! The staff seemed more interested in preparing for guest still to arrive that paying attention to those already in the restaurant The food was not prepared to the usual standard & had to be sent back. It took an extraordinary amount of time to arrive when it didn’t seem that busy. We have had many meals at Panama Jacks & I have always wanted to come back but after last night - it’s going to be some time before I return. So disappointing!

    Schnitzel and Topper Night - Good Value. Food was fresh and delivered quickly to the table. A great place to meet friends for dinner. Plenty of room. Service was helpful and friendly.

    My partner and I ate here for the first time. We both ordered pizza. The pizza base was thick and on the hard side and the toppings on the BBQ Meat Lovers option were thick and chunky which did not really help as the few beef pieces were hard and chewy and the overall flavour of the pizza was not great. So a big disappointment. The tables were a good size and nicely spaced, but our table was next to the bar so you had groups our people waiting to order drinks standing near us to get to the bar, which did not help and made the place feel like a services club. Fake plants or a fake wooden hedge to separate us for the bar would help to feel like your personal space was being invaded. Drinks I found to be on the expensive side. So overall not good value for money for a restaurant in Bracken Ridge.

    I think they were just very busy and it seemed quite disorganised. Our food took quite a while and came out at different times. Most importantly though it was still quite yummy.

    Had not been here for a few years but our last visit was good. This visit was very good, from staff, service and food. The timing between our entrees and our mains were great and I can imagine that weekends could have longer wait times. We were here mid week so not overcrowded although still busy. Would not hesitate to come again.

    Disappointed about the Rump Steak - It took over 30 minutes for the meal to arrive, The steak was very chewy and full of fat, so I consumed half of it and left the other half on the plate - no happy about the meal itself.

    Current staff appear well educated on customer service, Emily in particular. She was very friendly and helpful, but Shania must also get a mention. Very pleasant staff tonight and as always , the Schnitzs are the best. Generous serve, as well as the sides.

    Very helpful staff etc and looked after us but food was really disappointing. Ordinary ribs with tasteless sauce, weird chowder, dry steaks. Don't give reviews much... Hope this is helpful rather than taken the wrong way.

    Overall the food was just passable, the sauces need some serious attention, the garlic sauce was a béchamel sauce with a bit of garlic mixed in and the pepper sauce not sure maybe packet mix .... the ribs were very underwhelming. The guy on the cash register taking orders need some training in customer service, not at all friendly service. better pub food options around . defiantly would not rush back

    Staff seemed annoyed when I asked if there was a kids menu and asked if he (my 7 year old son) needed one. The steak sandwich was delicious, but the kods cheeseburger wasn't nice at all, my son couldn't eat it.

    Our family went to Panama Jacks to celebrate my mothers 83rd Birthday. I requested somewhere quiet for seating when bing online. The seating was perfect and lovely and private. The food everyone ordered that day was just beautiful and fantastic portions! Every staff members encountered were just lovely and very accommodating. I would highly recommend Panama Jacks to everyone! ⭐️
