I know! I know! But I just couldn’t resist talking about this place. I was greeted by a lady at the bar who won my heart immediately! I was thirsty with a mind for trying new things, so she tempted me with a refreshing full strength ginger beer. Then, whilst I waited for the bar staff to pour that with a little ice on the side, she asked me if I’d perused the menu. I had and with that she predicted that I would order the seafood tower. I’m on the coast and my life is a non stop travelling food adventure- of course I’m going to order the main seafood dish whilst I’m on the coast - pfft please.

​I also told her that I might be tempted by the chicken wings. With that she helped me get my drinks to the table and in that process I may have suggested who I was and what I was doing there.

Ok let’s confirm that table order for 106.

Entree

Southern fried chicken wing in Louisiana hot sauce blue cheese sauce and pickles - It’s no secret that the Wolfman loves his wings but hot damn ! Somebody got it right! Somebody definitely got it right.

These were quite possibly the best wings I have ever tried. Moist and tender with a sauce that was spicy enough to warm your lips , hot enough to loosen your sinuses but not so hot they blow the top of your head clean off. The balance of flavours here was spot on and that cheeky little pickle on my plate was certainly an added bonus. Blue cheese sauce is the perfect addition to these tasty, sticky little bliss bombs. I’ll say it again. Somebody got it right.

Mains.

Seafood BBQ, Grilled barramundi, prawns calamari chips salad Tartare sauce. The Barra was full of flavour, cooked perfectly straight off the grill.

The Seafood Tower, Chilled Prawns , Natural oysters , Calamari , battered barramundi, Balmain Bug , chips Salad and Sauce.

I’ve had so many variations of a seafood basket I got a little excited when I saw this on the menu because I was sick of seeing a plate full of deep fried crap being thrown onto a plate with a little salad for colour and a lemon for the sake of presentation. What I received at my table was really really good. The Barra was cooked well though I half expected it to be a little greasy. It wasn’t. I was really tasty though some say Barra can be a little underwhelming flavour wise. I got a piece of fish that was on point. The chips I have to say were a little underwhelming, but I really didn't care. There was enough on the plate to have me happily push them out of the way to get to the good stuff. The fresh seafood was tender and delicious, the calamari was again cooked perfectly, the selection of sauces had me dipping and munching my way through a really enjoyable feast. Happy camper over here boys and girls. Hats off.

Dessert

Sticky date pudding with ice cream and cream oh and Strawberries on top if you don’t mind. I love the addition of strawberries to a sweet dish because the acidity cuts through the sweetness. The pudding was plump, moist and delicious and that sauce was amazing. Again the strawberries helped that along because I’m not really a sweet tooth and I don’t do a lot of deserts. I would love to revisit this desert in the middle of winter with the addition of a fine cognac.

Really enjoyable guys and thanks again for your hospitality.
