Absolutely shocking service had to wait 20min just to see waitress they where so understaffed which is just silly for a public holiday when a cruise ship is in.

Food very unexiting To call it a craft bar when it serves main stream beer is a joke Service poor Owners sitting outside smoking Not a good look Overall awful Would not go back

Wow, we didn't excite you did we! We take immense pride in our new menu and our extensive range of 15 ales on tap - perhaps you didn't notice the range of Black Dog Brewing Co. craft beers available, nor the Monteith's Brewer's Series which are of excellent "craft beer" quality. More

Given it was early evening and out of season, this place was a real find. cosy and friendly. At first I was a little disappointed that my first 2 choices were sold out, so I ordered the steak. It was far and away the best steak that I have ever had. It was cooked perfectly to my taste, it was... More

We were walking around the Octagon looking for a place to eat... When we saw the Sunday special, pork roast for $14. What a bargain! Delicious tender pork roast with gravy and baked apple, hasselback potato with sour cream, baby carrots and broccoli. Nothing beats this except having it with a icy cold cider. We added the apple and boysenberry... More

Lovely to sit in the heart of the city with a refreshing ale and watch the world go by, inside by the fire or outside under heat strips, food also available although we didn't partake in this option on this occaision what we saw looked delicious

I experienced a rare thing indeed when we visited this place for dinner - an interesting and tasty salad!!!! I didn't think a salad could taste so good! I think it was called the Very Vegetarian - an Asian inspired salad with tofu and a sesame dressing with a bit of a kick. I felt compelled to write a review... More

We bought a grab one voucher for Craft Bar on our visit to Dundedin. The waitress was friendly and helpful but despite the bar being very lowly occupied the service was incredibly slow. The food however once it arrived was tasty and well presented. The neighbouring table all sent their meals back as they were cold. Whist the food was... More
