Enjoyed this place and had a great meal. Good service and food in nice surroundings. Like being by the water and close to town. Would be great outdoors on a nice day.

Visited here a couple of times for drinks and food. It's in prime position for morning and early afternoon sun, but is in the shade from about 4pm in the summer (although they do then extend their outside space further out). A good drinks selection, and decent value. Food is decent, with a nice range and variety. Service very friendly.

The menu in this brewbar is varied and the food is very good. Their preparation of usual bar foods was unique and delicious. The wait staff is very friendly and attentive. There is outdoor and indoor dining. If the weather is nice, sitting outdoors in the bistro type area is great for watching the activity on the wharf. This restaurant... More

Really enjoy this place, have visited on both our visits to Wellington. Good food, and really good beer in a terrific location on the waterfront.

Nice bar/restaurant on the waterfront, very busy but still excellent service and superb food. Dined here on our first night in Wellington and because of location and atmosphere decided to dine here again on our second night. Option to dine in the bar or attached restaurant and we opted for the latter, staff very friendly and helpful on both nights.

The Brewbar serves good food and has a great selection of draft beers. The waiting staff are friendly and helped us choose a selection of beers to make up a drinks flight that we shared between us. We had a very good meal at a reasonable price.

Busy bar with some tasty snack food. Has a good feel to it and nice atmosphere for what is quite a big bar. Some cosy booths to sit in and friendly staff too. Worth a visit
