We visited on a Thursday evening and were able to enjoy $13 burgers and cocktails! We all really enjoyed our burgers and the cocktails were delicious.

Booked for a group of 7 last minute and was glad we got a table. The hangover platter was awesome value and was more than enough for 3 of us for dinner as we were not that hungry after having a big lunch. Food was nice. Service was fast and staff were friendly. The fans were great at keeping us cool too. Would come here again when we visit GC next time.

Food was amazing and the waitress who seated us was fantastic.
The only issue we had was our drink order was placed before our food order and arrived after we had eaten our meals.

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.
