Very slow for food to arrive.2 of the meals were cold and had to send back.
Had to get drinks from bar due to lack of staff.
It appeared management had not taken into account that a show was on at city hall.
This rating should not affect the staff who were overworked.

We found the noise level with a solo singer quite loud that we couldn't hear each other across the table but they did turn this down once we asked them to. We also ordered food which took nearly an hour to deliver and were asked if we were all finished and happy with our meals before we were even served them. Our meals came out at different times and after people who had ordered after us. We had to cancel one meal as others at the table were nearly finished before there was any sight of our last meal for the table. The food was very expensive for what it was - $30 for 2 small pieces of chicken with a few vegies - value for money was not really what you were paying for - more the location which was convenient for us.

The service was terrible . Waiting over 45mins just to receive the food is not acceptable. When we got there , there was not many people so not sure why it took that long. You need to have quicker service during the lunch time period.

Booked table for 6 for 5pm but our order took nearly 1 hour for main. Other tables who ordered way after got their food. Clearly forgot about us. Left us 10mins to throw our food down. Food was beautiful but 10min to eat a $42 steak is a disgrace. No discount or sincere apology.

Waited 30 mins for drinks and 50 mins for over priced and cold undercooked calamari and nachos which had hardly any toppings on it. Was there for my daughters school ball and sadly soured by a poor dining experience

Dry, tasteless, expensive pre-cooked food. One waitress was friendly and great the other was rude, somber and awful. I think even the burger was pre-cooked it was that bad.

we all ordered the big breakfast because of the bubble & squeak that was on it. Very disappointed as it was only tiny frozen patty like a hash brown and was soggy. Lots of bacon, but unfortunately it was swimming in fat. yuk. A very average meal for the $21.00 pricetag.

It was a very busy night with a Rugby Wallabies vs Ireland match on. I would like to commend the staff on how friendly and helpful they were in such an environment. I really appreciated the guidance and communication on when best to take our orders and keeping things rolling so we made the game on time. Service was great. Thank you!!!

The venue was very busy and our food order was impacted taking the best part of 50 minutes from order to delivery. I could not fault the staff they were under the pump and were doing their best. The food was tasty and overall we enjoyed the visit.

It was our Staff Christmas Party. Staff were friendly and attentive. Despite it being pretty busy the food came out pretty quickly. Everyone enjoyed their meals. It was good quality, plenty of it and reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend it. Would have it there again. Thanks Pig N' Whistle - King George Square. :)

My friend and I ordered fish and chips. Forty minutes later the meals hadn't arrived. We were told they'd be ready in ten minutes. They weren't. After an hour waiting we cancelled our order, went to the 7/11, and bought sausage rolls.
Good sausage rolls.

The service was bissmal - the waitress first hounded us for our orders and then asked us to repeat it 4 times then got it wrong!
I sent my steak back as it was overdone.
I won't be returning anytime soon.

Booking was smooth and table was ready when we arrived. NO problems with the service or food. The curry and chicken parma get a thumbs up. The steak was huge.
Not the cheapest place in town but pleasant and the open air feeling is perfect for Brisbane.
