Each of the meat dishes were perfectly seasoned and cooked just right - moist and flavorful. The sides were all tasty as well. We did take away, but the cozy setting made us yearn for a return visit.

Service was top notch which was a nice change. Very attentive and friendly. Decor is a bit ho hum and feels like a cheap bistro in a pub. Food was tasty but nothing outstanding. Good portion sizes. It was quite expensive for what was essentially a good pub style meal.

The pulled pork was soaked in juices and not eatable, the owner advised its supposed to be that way. Crispy pork was nice but 4 thin slices for $29 is expensive. The place was a cafe style and was on a TV food show thus why we went. I wouldn't recommend nor go again. A big disappointment and thumbs down.

Went for lunch so no need to book and get a table easily. Had CeeGars for starter - mistake. The flavour and spice was ok but it didn't seem to be crispy pastry and just seemed pretty ordinary. Shared Big Rib Combo with hubby. We were cautious after the starter. It there was no need. This was excellent. We had... More

We were on the hunt for great ribs in Brisbane, this place did not disappoint! We had pork and lamb ribs, both were succulent and delicious! To start we also had some hot wings. Highly recommend! Corona Beergharitas are the ultimate man cocktail! Where have they been all my life??
