Love eating at your restaurant but Monday nights food was not worth talking about!
Rib/steak combo
Ribs were dry, small amount of sauce under ribs.
Chips cooked several times, didn't eat any!
Corn cut to small, use to be juicy
No onion rings on top!
Disappointed
Chicken Parmy
Very thin, very dry and chips were the same
It was a special night for us, 24th wedding Anniversary, food was a let down.

Both the food and the service is fabulous - either eat in or take away/delivery. I will certainly go back again. Thanks BRT & Panama Jacks !!

Go to Panama Jacks often...it's our "go to" when we need to eat out.
Enjoy the food and that it is open all afternoon.
Also enjoy the staff who are very helpful and courteous.
It is just a pleasant eating experience.

My local food place. Good quality food, but the portion size has decreased and the price increased. Not sure what happened to my bacon bits in the Oyster Kilpatrick. A tablespoon of mash and 12 chips seems a bit light too.

Once the entree was done the mains came out straight away. A bit of a break would be good.

Service was good otherwise.

Was really disappointed in the food, the menu has changed and over priced.
Not a good experience as I have eaten there in the past many times.

The lasagne was very dry, the mince should have been a lot tastier. The fish had been frozen and was over cooked. I think it will be a long time before we are back at the BRT.

As a Coeliac, it is hard to find a place to eat with Gluten Free options, that taste fantastic and look appealing. I have had 3 meals at Panama Jacks and each time they were lovely, tasty and good value for money.

Waitress was very informative regarding specials, she had a very friendly & professional manner. Food was great & wait time was perfect for a sip & chat. Area was clean & another waiter passing by checked to see how our meal was going. Cannot fault service we experienced.

Probably one of the worst pub meals, we have had. 80% of our meals where terrible. Value was cheap for lunch meal, but frozen fish, small size, over cooked everything. Don't think I will ever go back, or our friends.

Was no one there to greet when I arrived, my table I had reserved had people in it, staff was unhelpful had to seat myself & family, found & booked dinner online as I suffer from alapecia hair loss so I made sure dress code was casual via online. Once seated I ordered $90 later the manager (Hayley) told me I was not allowed a hat & my son wasn’t aloud his singlet on hes 9 only woman where aloud singlets. Dinner came out & was incorrect my plate & my partners we were then made to feel like it was our fault. Throughout the remainder of the night my partner & I were made to feel very uncomfortable. We will not be dinning there again & neither will our friends & family .

Hi Troy, I'm sorry you were made to feel this way. No hats in our restaurant is a company dress code that has always stood, one that you will find in many other restaurants. We have this in place for security reasons. Had you mentioned something about having Alapecia we would have made an exception, the same as we do for patrons that are undertaking Chemotherapy. Thanks for taking the time to leave us some feedback. All the best, Hayley Lee Operations Manager
