Our booking was made for 7:45pm on arrival we were told we had to order before 8pm - there was no time to relax and take in the restaurant. If the kitchen closes at 8 bookings should not be made past 7:15pm

A little busy considering the current COVID climate, but the food was delicious and generous serves. Considering how full the restraint was it feels like more staff was needed.

Overall another great experience. Covid has affected the interaction staff, which is a bit sad, as they are always friendly. There was 8 of us eating and drinking and our table quickly became full of plates and empty glasses. We had to grab the waitress to assist in removing the empties so we had room, but otherwise it was a great lunch.

3 birthdays this year, 3 $13 burger nights here at longboards. This is an excellent value for money way to go out and spend as little as $20 on a top notch burger and a schooner of beer. Each time we go we seem to spend a little longer there enjoying the evening but on this occasion the 2100 closing time was a surprise for school holidays and there were still quite a few people still there.
However this won't stop us from going there again, we'll just have to get there earlier.
