    Not recommended

    I used to love this place, but I just ate there and it was not good. My burger was way overcooked and my wife' s food arrived cold--not even room temperature--but actually cold. They reheated her food (not giving her a new dish, just microwaved what she'd already bit into) but it was still not warm.

    The Perfect Bar

    Great staff and awesome food. Never get any attitude from staff and all patrons are so friendly. Enjoy not having to wait in line or deal with a place so crowded you can't breathe. Treated with lots of respect here and always a good time. The host is as down to earth and friendly as they come. Try it!

    Cheers-Aussie style

    This is my go-to place when I want 1) a fun place to watch a sporting event but don't want to be shoulder-to-shoulder with sweaty meatheads; 2) need to a Hibiscus Royale to wash away the week at a Friday happy hour ; or 3) can't shake my craving for Aussie-style chips, meat pies, or sticky prawns. An Aussie version of Cheers, if you come in once or twice, there's a good chance not just the bartenders and servers, but the Aussie owner himself will know your name! Either way, you'll want to come back for more.

    horrible food, burger overcooked and wok vegetables were mostly rice and carrot shavings. This is all after receiving a call 15 minutes after I ordered to tell me they didn't have what I had ordered. Sloppy

    The Yummy from Down Under

    Great superfriendly atmosphere! Amazing barsnacks and gastro-pub cuisine try the meatpies and sausage rolls at the bar and the Barramundi or steak salad in the back. My husband loves it for the Cricket, Australian Rules Football and Rugby, my daughter loves it for the good looking Australian blokes and I love it cause of the great wine night Wednesdays when I can kick back and enjoy a flight of amazing Aussie wines for only $12

    Fun and totally different

    I love this bar. Great food that's so out of the norm. Sticky prawns and the snapper cigars are my faves! And to be able to pick a fabulous beer OR a great glass of wine while I watch my favorite baseball team on satellite? Impossible elsewhere! I've never had trouble with the service unless they're absolutely slammed, so not sure why the previous reviewers had such difficulties. Oh, and they have fun and informative wine nights, too! All in all, a great addition to a neighborhood in need.

    I walked in and ordered takeout during lunch. the australian burger and some buffalo wings. bacon, fried egg and cheddar on a toasted bun with some wierd gray colored mystery meat. i was hungry and the bacon, cheese and egg covered up most of the taste but there was just a gross quality about the meat. i ordered it rare but it came completely gray and was strangely mushy, reminiscent of pate but not quite that texture. it took them a full 20 minutes for my order and i guess i was just expecting a lot better. i was debating whether or not to keep going after the first bite but this was already 24 bucks so i wasn't going to get another lunch. the fries were so -so as were the wings. I got it all back to my desk in under five minutes so timing wasn't a factor. All in all, overpriced and forgettable
