This Irish pub is located in central Surfers Paradise and a short walk from the Cavill Av GTram stop. I opted for their $4 rump where one must purchase at least one side for $3. I chose two sides which were chips and coleslaw. Pepper...gravy was $2 extra. Total cost of my meal was $12 which is great value. This special is available every day. I had one of their $5.50 xxxx dry schooners which was the beer special. Great value lunch. They also offer various other specials.More

Cheap meal. Partner and I both had the special on Tuesday night. Was nothing special compared to other places on the GC. No real service ie/ give you your meal and don’t come back to follow up whether the customer wants drinks, feedback on meal...etc. Meal was ok overall.More

How good can a $4 steak really be? Well, if I'm honest - pretty damn good! It's not the biggest steak you'll have, but it was well cooked to medium (as I ordered) and the compulsory $3 side (I had chips) and the optional $3...sauce (diane) were great. You can add as many sides as you want for $3 each, but you have to have at least one. So if you're worried - don't be. If you're still hungry after one, order another steak. The beers on tap ranged from the down and dirty XXXX Dry through to some more crafty options from the region. The place is text-book Irish pub, with an outdoor bit at the front, a range of tables inside, and plenty of TVs showing sport. For a Sunday recovery session, it's not bad. For a cheap feed, it was Excellent.More

Great $4 steaks on a Sunday. Thoroughly enjoyed the meal. It came out fresh and hot. We left nothing on our plates by the time we finished ✅

we went there for a long organised birthday for my girkfriends 21st when we arrived we were told that this woman who also was hosting her sons 21st there on the same day had moved all the barricades and taken over the majority of our...entitled space for her venue and the idea of them doing that to us was to prevent a bad review so heres my own bad review. we then went in for our time on the microphone to make speeches for my girlfriend within the first 30 seconds of her speech people that already stole our venue started yelling out abusive comments to the innocent girl on her 21st birthday which made her leave the venue balling her eyes out and the waxys security did nothing to prevent itMore

We went there for some dinner and few drinks for a relatives birthday, all was going fine until a bunch of drunken young louts who were celebrating a birthday as well decided to come and hate crash our birthday 🎉 and we ended up in...a all in brawl with then and security guards, well I must admit that is the quickest way to get drinks stopped and then a bunch of cops arrived to gate crash our party as well. It’s sounding like it’s the place to go for a bite and a fightMore

I called in for lunch to try a $4 steak. One needs to orders sides which cost $3 each. I added slaw, fries and pepper gravy which cost an additional $8. Meal was not on the large size but offered great value. Steak though was...not a premium steak although I did not expect it to be at that price. One can order additional steaks for $4. They had XXXX dry schooners for $5.50.More
