    We had a wonderful table in the beer garden section, we ordered garlic bread, Saganaki , a chicken Parma and the American bbq platter. The brisket was amazing ! The Parma was perfection ! I had a strawberry and lime spritz which was great 😊 a lovely evening and a second time visiting for us. We had a vegetarian guest also who had plenty of options - an egg plant Parma was the chosen meal and it was a generous serving ! We had a great night and the staff were very attentive also.

    Meats not smoked at all, brisket tasted like it was cooked in an oven, not tender. Chicken breast tasted like poached and no smoke flavour. Ribs were ridiculously tough, and tasted as if they had been frozen and reheated, slight taste of freezer burn. No smoke ring or bark on any of the food. Coleslaw had a crazy amount of sauce it. Beers were good but would not come here for the meat trays

    This is our second time dining at here and we just love the food and service. The chairs are super comfy too as we hate sitting on uncomfortable timber chairs. The ambience is a great vibe, not too noisy and it feel cosy. We will definitely keep coming. Oh my Mum has eaten many chicken parmas over the years and she said it was the best one she’s ever eaten as loved the flavour of the sauce. We had porterhouse steaks they were generous size, tender and mouthwatering to eat. Overall we love this place.

    We were greeted with a great smile and once we were seated the waiter came and took our order we mentioned about the Bottomless lunch apparently didn’t even know about it? After we decided to go with the bottomless option we were informed that the bottomless is the Taphouse platter but it’s $129. Not saying there’s anything wrong with it but it’s the fact that they advertising it on TikTok and everywhere but their stuff doesn’t even acknowledge it, it’s a bit weird to me. The platter itself was ok the meat was definitely on the dried side but their bbq sauce is definitely amazing!

    Lovely attentive staff. Busy spot, full of atmosphere! Delicious meals, unfortunately my steak was over cooked but still very tasty so I did not complain.

    The whole experience was extremely disappointing. We made a booking, which was confirmed, however upon turning up to the venue, there were signs stating the venue was closed due to private function. After trying to flag down a staff member, we finally spoke to a girl who seated us in a back corner. The communication was disjointed - we tried ordering a number of items which were all unavailable. We then wanted to order a beer (being it is a Tap House, and there was a large number of beers being promoted). However the beers aren't listed on the menu, and we weren't able to go to the bar to choose due to the private function. We had to just guess what beer we wanted based on a photo the waitress took of the bar. The food came out very dry and cold (as if it had been sitting waiting for someone to bring it out to us.). The staff spent more time fussing over the private event, rather than even asking us how our meal was, or if we would like anything else. Spoke to the owner or manager on departure and advised that we were unhappy. They kept blaming lack of staff on the situation - there were ample amounts of staff walking around as the function had only just commenced, with no more than 20 people in attendance when we left. Just really disappointing experience, followed by even more poorly handled communication.
