I just had a pint of the black stuff and a Guinness pie on St. Paddy's Day. The pie was great served with mixed veggies and spuds. The waitresses and waiters were great , the bartender does a good pull of a pint and they even had a complementary ride (in the rain) back to my motel. The only drawback... More

We had a team dinner here recently and it was great. Really good food. Decent service. Quick and no fuss. Priced ok. And venue was good for the beach. Looked nice for a family dinner too on the quieter side of the restaurant.

Friday evening busy popular pub. Order at counter OK table service. No light beer on tap in restaurant seemed a bit strange. Food was OK for pub grub. Atmosphere at our table near the order desk and service entrance from kitchen not the best. We ate quickly and left. Might be better over near the windows.

After driving from Sydney we were relieved to get a great table on the outside deck as the sun was setting. Our waitresses were friendly and helpful and we enjoyed lovely steaks cooked to our liking. Inside was less inviting as uncontrolled children were racing around in one section and in the other bar the music was deafening. It could... More

We accidentally ended up here after the 16's lunch hours weren't convenient to us and we are so glad it worked out that way! The food here was delicious, we ordered bread, chicken wings, burgers, seafood and steak and every one of us was happy with our meals! This is a little hidden gem we didn't know about, but we...

Good pub food ... bit over priced but the staff are friendly and helpful, and it's lovely to sit on the balcony and watch the sun set ...

Ordered a blue steak and it came out med, would have sent it back but trying to get the attention of the staff was useless, clearly untrained staff. Wont be going back in a hurry, They can't even cook a basic steak.

The Gunyah Hotel has recently re-opened after a huge fire almost destroyed the premises. We have eaten at the Gunyah Hotel Restaurant/Bistro many times in the past prior to the fire so we're keen to try again after re-opening. The Hotel's restaurant has a fantastic view of Lake Macquarie but faces west so on a hot summer twilight with a... More
