Took some old friends here for dinner and catch up. Location is good down on the waterfront where all the action is, but the place is pretty noisy and not the best place to hold a conversation. The place is not cheap, but when I asked if I could get the green beans instead of the spinach with my steak,... More

My partner & i had brunch at Jack Tar over Easter and were very impressed. They have a great setting with a lot of outdoor tables right on the old wharf and the atmosphere indoors is excellent as well. The menu covered most of the bases required for brunch and the food was superb. The meals were fairly large, which... More

We ate at this restaurant both nights we were in Auckland. It's in a very trendy part of the city and great to sit outside and watch the world go by. The food was excellent and we had very good service. I'd definitely recommend Jack Tar.

Dinner for five on Saturday night - like most gastro pubs the noise levels were a bit high as the place was packed, The menu was good and we all enjoyed our selections.. Service was good, prices were good - overall a very good night out. Parking in the area on Saturday can only be described as tragic - you... More

Great service, but cold and windy even inside with all doors open. Where there a little early so had to wait from 5:10pm to 5:30 before they would let us order dinner before then only bar snacks available (from 3:00-5:30). Nice enough for drinks perhaps but won't rush back for a family dinner.

From the extensive menu selection, this seemed like the perfect spot for lunch at the North Wharf. Our hamburgers were tasty, and were served with well-prepared fries, but because of the popularity of the restaurant, we had to sit inside at tables with no views. It was difficult to get the attention of our server and we had to track... More

We had lunch here recently as we didn't want anything too fancy and the prices looked reasonable and it was busy. I had the fish and chips in beer batter. The batter was crisp and fish nicely cooked. Chips and salad were average. My partner had the pork belly in hoisin sauce on a mash, It was tasty but the... More

There is a lot of eating choices on the North Wharf strip but we picked Jack Tar's because we wanted burgers and beer and this place looked fun. It is a big space with both outdoor and warehouse eating space. Service was good and the prices quite reasonable....and there was free WiFi too.

Thank Jane S
