Hi Taylah, Thanks for the 5 stars! Hope to see you back soon :)
been here a few time, like the place because its a good food/cool bar environment with alot of staff always. only complaint is i usually come here for dinner and when you book a table they don't seem to reserve a spot as such. so last time i got stuck at a tiny little table with stalls with barely enough room for two plates and getting shoved from the table behind us and then all the people walking past
Hi TimE, Thanks for the review. I can assure you we do reserve tables for our dinner bookings. Friday & Saturday are our busiest nights and we do our best to accommodate everyone. Next time you make a booking please make a note on where you would like to sit or let our friendly wait staff know if you need to move tables. We do our best to oblige all request.
Food arrived 50mins after ordering. Good thing we weren't starving to begin with.
Hi Jill, Thanks' for the review, I see you visited us on Valentine's Day which is one of the busiest day's of the year for us. I'm sorry there was a delay on food and hope to see you back in the venue soon.
Great cocktails and attentive staff
Dear Anonymous, Thanks for this awesome review!
Can’t fault anything. Loved everything - fast food, quality and tasty food and loved being able to order and pay for everything at the table without waiting for anyone to come to us! Awesome all round
Hi ChloeE, Thanks for this lovely review. Hope to see you back in the venue soon :)
My main review is due to the booking itself, I was extremely annoyed, I booked two weeks in advance for a bday dinner for 12 people and we arrived to being separated to two tables, then I complained (because why would I be happy about being separated I booked for 12 together for a reason!) we were then squashed onto those two tables pushed together.
There were lovely bench seat tables at the back plus a few other long tables available that we could all see.
This was very frustrating considering how long in advance I booked.
As for the food, four people in our group ordered ribs and they were all warm close to cold, we did get offered a free round of drinks but for some reason they only took 2 of those drink orders.
It was hard to get the attention of the staff to ask why so we just left it.
The staff were not particularly friendly only one of the male staff whom took our order did however seem friendly and helpful.
I would recommend this place to others for drinks perhaps, but for food I would try again just to give the place a second chance.
Hi Sammid, Thank you for your feedback we will definitely take it on board and use it to improve. I see you visited our venue on the 6th of Feb which was an extremely busy night for us & we had been fully booked for a number of weeks in advance. I know it's frustrating when you see larger tables empty but I can assure you they were booked and waiting for their groups to arrive.
Definitely a place to go for a great meal and great cocktails loved it there
Hi Erin, Thanks for the lovely 5 stars! Hope to see you back in the venue soon :)
Food was great. Ordered the ribs and calamari salad which were so nice. Bit noisy but understandable for Sat night. Bit frustrated that servers missed the drinks orders waited until food came out and needed to remind the staff about the drinks orders. However she apologised and served straight away which made up their mistake. Overall nice and will definitely visit again.
Hi SunP, Thanks for the review. We're not perfect here at Steampunk but when mistakes are made we do our best to make up for them. Glad you enjoyed your meals, hope to see you back in the venue soon :)
Great service and atmosphere.
Staff were really lovely and the place is next level.
Food was really ordinary, we were quite disappointed.
Hi StaceyE, I'm sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your meal here at Steampunk. We do our best to offer delicious, high quality meals at competitive prices and usually get great feedback. If you are ever dissatisfied with your food here at Steampunk please notify one of our friendly team members and we'll do everything within our power to rectify the situation.
The vibe was great, as was the food. The service is friendly and food/drinks ordered by your phone which is both great and not so great.
It’s great because you can order & pay without leaving your seat. It’s not so great, because if you have questions or requests, you have to flag down a passing server (that are already on another mission), and you can’t make request by the online system. Also, it’s quite antisocial for one person to have their face in their phone, doing the order, meanwhile everyone also around you does the socializing.
The booth seating was also quite hot and stuffy, especially considering that it is full of diners. Some fans/ventilation would be a good addition.
Overall, it is a fun modern place, with great food. I’d go again, but I’d avoid the booths. The ordering system is what it is... it’s ok if there’s just a couple of you, but with a bigger group, it’s not the best.
Hi AdamM, Thanks for the review and I'm glad you enjoyed your food, service and vibe :) We are always happy to seat guests wherever they prefer, maybe try the deck next time to feel that cool summer breeze through your hair. Our waitstaff are always to happy to take your order 'old school' so please feel free to let your hostess know when you're seated. Thanks for the 4 stars!
Nice place to eat or drink with anyone and to chill. Good not to loud music 🙂 food and service were great!
Felt like a big rip off with the food, prices way to high for what we got. Left there unsatisfy and disappointed. Will not be going back.
Hi Joshp, I'm sorry to hear to didn't enjoy your dining experience. We do our best to offer delicious and competitively priced meals here at Steampunk. We also offer heaps of great specials including lunch specials, Wing Deals and 50% off locals night to name a few. If anything most of our diners comment our serving sizes are too large!
Great party / social venue. Not ideal for families. Food was really nice and fresh. Music was great but a bit too loud to talk over. Security guy at entrance was unwelcoming and super official. We almost didn’t want to stay because of this. Felt like we were being herded and roped off like animals. All other Steampunk staff were pleasant and efficient.
Hi Regga, Thanks for this review. We love families here at Steampunk and do our best to accommodate them, please let our team know when booking and we can place you in a quieter section of the restaurant. Sorry to hear the security wasn't as welcoming as you would like. He does have an extra stressful role at the moment making sure everyone is signed in for maximum COVID safety and seated in a prompt and timely manner. I will definitely pass your feedback on.
Service was amazing with friendly staff ensuring that everything was ok and our drinks were flowing. Great atmosphere. Food was great and drinks reasonably priced. A place to go whilst in Surfers
Hi NicoleO, Thanks for the 5 stars glad you enjoyed your visit :)
Really great food and atmosphere as per usual. The live singer was brilliant too!
Hi Anonymous, Thanks for this awesome review glad you enjoyed the live music :)
Good food, good drink, reasonably priced. A great spot to go before you’re out on the town
Quick service, discount deal on Thursday for locals. Good steak ! Thank you
Service was great and fast, food was eh. Group of 5, 2 got the chicken schnitzel to which it was still a little pink in the middle in spots, beef burger was average, and calamari was ok. All felt a little sick a few hours after however.
Hi Sjas, I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your lunch here at Steampunk. Our lunch parmi's often contain thigh meat which has a more pinkish tinge but I can assure you all our food is cooked and prepared to the highest possible standard. Please notify our team if you're ever unhappy with your meal as we will always do our best to remedy the situation. Glad you enjoyed the service and thanks for the review.
Absolutely love steampunk! $10 espressos, always a great atmosphere and an awesome range of food and cocktails. Will definitely be back again
Hi BrownieB, Thanks for this awesome review!
Fantastic service and meals very big in size, great value for money. Drinks were spectacular
Was a nice meal with good music. Service was quick but it was very quiet at the time. Lots of staff standing around with not a lot to do until someone ordered something.
We booked the table on the mistaken idea that this was going to be a cool steampunk bar. This was not the case. Yes, there was a scattering of steampunk accoutrements inside. Unfortunately what ruined it were the TV's with sport playing. So, we had found ourselves in a sports bar in reality being promoted as something else. Very disappointed.
In saying that, the cocktails were fun and the haloumi fries were also nice. The cheese pizza was bland and would not recommend ordering it.
Hi DottyJ, We definitely ARE a Steampunk themed bar from our décor & styling to our steamy themed cocktails. That being said we are also a functioning venue that host's numerous events and caters to many different groups. Our TV screens often play steampunk themed multi media displays but we also cater to sports fans, run slide shows for events and much more. We're always more than happy to seat diners away from the screens upon request. Thanks for the review.
Great food , fun atmosphere, staff were good once you got their attention. Will defintely return and recommend this place.
Really friendly service and the fishbowls were delicious! Incredible value on a Friday. The shooters were also yum and really fun to choose.
Hi Anonymous, Thanks and glad to hear you enjoys our Fishbowls! See you next Friday?
The food was fantastic, we had chicken wings and the butter chicken pizza. Staff were very friendly and the atmosphere was lovely. Will definitely be back
Hi ChereenA Thanks for the great review! Looking forward to seeing you back in the venue soon :)
Unfortunately we had a long wait for drinks and food as it was a busy night. Staff should have come to our table to let us know of the wait rather than us have to ask. Due to the contactless way of ordering and paying for food their really isn't any service now. We like to go out to have a chat we staff and be looked after and have the full experience and unfortunately that was lost
Hi MeganT, I'm sorry to hear staff were not as attentive as you'd like. I'll definitely pass this feedback on to our team. I can assure you we love chatting to our customers too and love to have a yarn when it isn't too busy.
Delicious food and amazing service. Love this place!
My first time experience at Steampunk was not good compared to other dinning experience around the area.
Meals , Cajun Chicken Breast was dry, BBQ Pork Ribs nothing to write home about, Smokey BBQ Beef Burger wasn't very Smokey and under cooked chips, when I asked the waitress for tomato source for my fries and was told it would be $3 extra I said your kidding me.(didn't get the source) Now the drinks 1 glass gold beer and 1 jug of coke 1.25lt all $22 HWY robbery in my books. Never going back thanks and I am a surfer paradise local with many interstate visitors.
Hi WayneF, I'm sorry the hear you didn't enjoy your experience here at Steampunk. We'll definitely take your feedback on board and appreciate your honest review.
Music/Live act was too loud.
Food is good. Easy to order. Nice service. Great drinks
Hi VigithaM, We're sorry to hear you didn't enjoy our live music. Our staff are always happy to move customers who find the music too loud. Glad to see you enjoyed the food service and drinks :)
Ribs, calamari & loaded fries were incredible and drinks were delicious but definitely order two drinks each to start with as it took about 30 mins for our drinks
Hi JazmynM, Thanks for this lovely review. Sorry about your wait on drinks, sometimes during the busy period and due to the elaborate nature of our cocktails it can occasionally slow down service in this area. Hope to see you back in the venue soon.
This is the second time we have eaten here and it was amazing both times
Hi Nickya, Thanks for this amazing review!
Food was not as delicious as before.
Drinks as well, my friend order a coke but it tasted like water. Asked the waiter to change one to us but still the same.
Overall the food quality was a disappointment. But service is good even though it’s very busy.
Hi Mary, I'm sorry our food was not as delicious as your previous visit. New Years Eve is extremely busy for us and I believe the post mix syrup may of run out leading to your coke tasting watery. Hopefully you give us another shot as we really appreciate your support. Happy New Year!
Food was dry && cold. Milk shake was nice, service was poor too.
Hi LanaW, I'm sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your visit to our venue. Obviously New Years Eve is the busiest night of the year for us which can sometimes lead to longer than usual wait times. I'd love for you to contact us directly so we can hear more about your experience.
Hi Lanz, Thanks for the lovely review :)
Sitting in a booth was crowded which dampened the atmosphere. It would have been good for a couple but not a group. Staff were great.
Hi KristinT, Thanks for the review and I'm sorry you didn't enjoy your booth seating. We are more than happy for guests to swap to different seating options upon request. We appreciate your support.
Had to use an online app to order be prepared to pay a hidden venue charge of 2% as well as a credit card charge and then 50c a container if you want to take your left over food. Food was good.
Hi NikkiC, Yes we provide an online app for ordering but are also more than happy to take orders over the bar or through a waitress. We try and provide many different ordering options to suit everybody.
