Great tasting burgers. Service was good and it is in a good location, right on the main drag of Cairns, The Esplanade.

I came into grill'd after a bad day at work and the staff couldn't have been more accommodating. Great service, listened to my little rant and then served us great burgers even at closing time.

We loved this spot. I got the sliders which was a nice choice as you try a few different types of burgers at once. They didn't have coke though, only Pepsi.

They were busy at dinner time on a Saturday and it showed in their service - rushed and sending out hastily prepared food. We ordered the Simply Grill's burger and it came looking smaller than the one I had in South Australia. The chicken, pomegranate and goat's cheese salad was delicious. However the most disappointing was the zucchini chips. It... More

Me and my fiancee dined here and it was pretty good, the meat on the burger was soft and juicy and cooked all the way through, the sourdough bun was cripsy on the outside and soft on the inside... the herb mayo sauce was pretty good too. And fiancee said the salad was tasty and she loved the bread they... More

We ate at Grill'd today, we had the Moroccan Lamb Burger and the Chicken burger. We also ordered chips which had rosemary salt. The chips were not to my taste. Food was good for the value but probably won't go back.

The standard has always been good. Good burgers at reasonable price. The ale was very nice too. Very conveniently located in esplanade. Will certainly visit again. The only thing that I didn't like was one of the waitress hinted for a tip. Aussies do not want that Part of Americanisation.

We visited here and some of our party have food restrictions so it was really lovely to have a huge juicy burger where everyone could eat! Food was lovely, staff were cheerful and helpful. Location is right opposite the esplanade and having eaten at other branches of Grill'd elsewhere in Australia we were not disappointed!

These burgers are to die for. Its a chain obviously, but still. Since you order on the counter there is not a lot of service going on. We went with a group of like 15 people and there was a big table to sit on. Was clean and once again, AMAZING burgers!
