My friends and I wanted to try something new and another friend recommended Dunedin. It was wonderfully different! I had a mint sangria and a NZ meat pie. Would definitely recommend giving this place a try. The noise level inside was a bit loud but, hey, it’s a younger crowd! They do have outdoor seating with heaters.

Our server was really fun and friendly! We were well taken care of and the ambiance was great. Decent tap list and a wide variety of menu items. Great for meat eaters and pescatarians.

Four of us split the monthly special and large skinny fries. Plenty of food for all of us. Good beer, good service. But the noise level was a little much sitting inside.

Dunedin is one our new favorites! We’ve come back a few times because their menu has too many good options to get in 1 sitting. I tried the pot pie recently and it tasted unlike any pot pie I’ve ever had, it was absolutely incredible. We also tried the friend chicken on one of our visits and that was amazing as well. Would highly recommend for a everyday dining!

Dunedin is one of our go to favorite neighborhood place. We brought friends with us from out of town and they had a great experience. Food was great, fire pit table was great and our server Jess was equally terrific.

I've been to Dunedin New Zealand 3 or 4 times and thought it was a decent restaurant. This time the service was a little slow, they got the order wrong, they served my husband first and I had to wait for my order then the burgers were so so. It used to be that the burgers of the month were free so the other person could try another entrée. This time it was buy one burger of the month and get one free. The burgers are better elsewhere. For $60 we got 2 burgers, 4 drinks, and an order of large fries. Otherwise it would have been over $78.

Love their grass fed burgers. Fries are a bit pricey but tasty. Wish they had the Bavarian pretzel vs just pretzel bites.

Our waitress seemed like she wanted us out but we didn't just get drinks. We got a lot of food and drinks. We would've spent more but she seemed to rush us and we ended up leaving earlier then we would've hope to. Overall, food was good, drinks were okay, and ambiance was nice.

The ambience was amazing here! Loved the outdoor seating and the indoor decorations were beautiful. I came in with a group of six and all of us loved our food (from burgers to salad)! The only downside was the service. Our waitress was not friendly and acted very annoyed when we asked for the heater to be put on (asked her three times, then asked another guy who finally turned it on). Once the food was delivered she never checked in to see how it was/see if she could get us anything else (too bad for her considering we wanted to order more drinks). Overall, great location and good food, but subpar service.

Great food, love the drinks selection. Fast becoming our favorite place! Important to note that while the menu is heavy on the burger, you can sub in an Impossible Patty, which is great for my non-meat eating friends. Dessert=yum.

A wonderful experience. My husband and I chose Dunedin to celebrate our anniversary and shared love of all things Kiwi and Aussie. We were not disappointed. The meat pies, chicken pie, chips, and lamb kebabs were all divine. The server was kind and accommodating. And the music was all of our favorite jams of the 2000s. So much fun! We will be back for sure!

After waiting 10 min at the bar, where sign said at front door to go for seating, I finally walked to the other end & told the people who were clearing dishes & pouring beer that we had a reservation. I was asked to wait “just a few min” and, again, waited 5 more while the guy who SEEMED to be overseeing things walked past me twice. Finally, We decided to go to another restaurant where we were warmly welcomed.

We were excited to eat at Dunedin, and I made a reservation for 7pm for 6 people about a week in advance. When we arrived the host told us both their table for 6 and table for 8 was occupied. We waited about 50 minutes to be seated. What was the point of a reservation?! We planned to leave as soon as we finished drinks near the bar, but a table finally opened. We were finally seated and enjoyed the food and drink, but when the time came to pay they gave us a hard time about paying separately because our group was “so large” (of course, they had nearly an hour of waiting time during which they could have informed us about special payment rules for large groups.) The server acted like he was doing us a huge favor by accepting our money, and gave us explicit instructions about how to organize the receipt slips since “we always lose the signature slips when we have groups this large.” If our group is too large for you to handle, why did you accept our reservation!? I was very disappointed in the service and will not be back.

Service was out of tune. They all seemed tired and overworked. The attentiveness was just lacking. I think staff was also frustrated with kitchen which was also having challenges. Busier than expected I presume. I felt there should have been better management assessing and making proper adjustments and accommodations for the lack of good service. Laid back and nice just a bit too passive and not proactive. Need busters so servers can properly serve. We bussed our own tables to the bar as it just wasn’t happening. Get it together because I like the food and concept. I expect way more now do to wait staff getting minimum wage plus tip. They served as if getting no tip. So maybe we should only be tipping 5% or less with the higher wage. Not sure what motivates wait staff but I think we should all start reducing our tips until they step up the service.
