Drinks were a lot of fun and food was good. Service was slow and yet, every 5 minutes they were asking what else they could get us (even though our other orders hadn't arrived).

Another great night out at House of Brews. Always a favourite for us for a get together as there are so many awesome beers to try and the cocktails are truly fabulous. Our waitress was friendly and around most of the time when we wanted to order more drinks. Already looking forward to our next visit...

The food was good and the wait staff were very attentive, restaurant was very noisy. What let down the whole experience was the heat, the restaurant was so hot, we were all sweating. We ended up leaving as soon as we finished our meals.

House of Brews gave me fantastic service for my 40th birthday.

Drinks: Platform 9 & 3/4 for my partner and I had a Purple Haze.

The drinks were sensational. I love the artistic way that they were both presented. My partner is a huge Harry Potter fan (the reason why I chose HoB for my dinner). Purple Haze was a great fruity cocktail and I can clearly see why it won awards.

Food: Big BBQ Plate.

We ordered the BBQ plate to share for our mains.

When we got to the steak component of the meal I could only explain to my partner what I'd experienced living and working in the United States for years. Going out to formal dinners at steak houses is the thing to do for business meetings and/or hot dates. My favorite restaurant in the world is a steakhouse in Portland, Oregon. The steaks there are the best that I'd ever had. I don't know if we scored on a lucky night or if it's always this good (I expect the latter) but the steak genuinely compared favorably to my Portland, Oregon steakhouse. The fajitas, wings and sliders were all perfect as well.

Sadly, as a huge fan of ribs, I could have done without the ribs on this night. I found the sauce to be overpowering and the rib meat to be average at best. However, it is genuinely the only criticism that I have for what was a magical meal.

Gratitude also to the staff who were able to seat us early. I had originally booked for 7pm with the expectations that we'd be doing something else earlier. However, my feet (I have a disability) didn't really allow us to go out and do too much. So we turned up at about 6pm and asked if we could swap our reservation. The girl at the front of house spent a minute fixing it up on their computer and was more than agreeable to getting us seated earlier. It's little things like positive customer service that make or break an experience like that.

We've already booked for a 7-person table in April and look forward to it.

We'll be back #Terminator

Excellent night out on new year’s eve we more so went for the cocktails. Ordered poutine and my gosh this was probably the best poutine we’ve had other than in Canada usually it’s sloppy and just thrown together but not this Poutine wish we could have eaten more food. Cocktails are very cool very gimicky but that’s what makes them. Staff were lovely and it’s a very cool vibe. Will be back again on a future visit to the gold coast. Thanks House of Brews for an enjoyable new year’s eve.

We were in a booth at the back right where the speaker was and the music was so loud that you couldn’t have a conversation. There was also no air in that corner so it was very uncomfortable.
We had to chase up a staff member to get our bill.
The cocktails are an overpriced illusion.

Very expensive for average pub food. I ordered the vegan burger and all it had on it was bbq jackfruit, a thin spreading of avocado and a giant amount of raw cabbage. It wasn’t even slaw like it said on the menu. Quite disappointing as it could’ve been done really well.

It was a great experience, until we got the bill
And realised how expensive the drinks were. We would definitely come back, and recommend to friends but would warn them first that the alcohol is incredibly expensive when compared to other places we dined while staying on the Gold Coast.

Absolutely incredible food, we had the Wings and Sliders and waffle chips. Went out for our anniversary and my partner and I just had the best time. Loads of cocktails too! Purple haze is just incredible and Jordan the bar tender was just the coolest guy! Highly would recommend if you’re looking for an awesome night out, if you are happy to spend a decent amount of money.

Honestly the service was so amazing, our waitress was named Sophee and she gave us hands down the best service we have ever received. We tried to give her a tip but she politely declined, she helped us make decisions on drinks and was quick to notice when we were out and needed more. We loved our time at the house of brews and the food was spectacular thank you for making our night so good 💓

Fantastic service and food. A wide array of cocktails and beers. Very fun place to go for a night out. Only thing is recommend is to keep the souvenirs from their cocktails but only a slight negative. The other thing was space, very squishy if having full blown groups in the establishment. Would recommend having more room.

Love love the House of Brews . Staff were pleasant , obliging , informative and caring which just topped our experience.
I love everything about the House of Brews and have recommended it to everyone that will listen lol 😃 .
The beer , drinks , food and the added touch of the fairy floss tower just spectacular.
Easy to book online was a plus as well . They had selected a booth that just suited our group perfectly. Have been there two years now for my birthday celebration and another birthday . Plus the occasional Sat/Sun afternoon bike ride stop for a drink and light snack .
House of Brews caters for all needs .

We had to ask staff to take drink orders as no-one was coming to serve us. It was a long wait in between drink orders and the food was quiet a wait.

Had a pretty good time, except the drinks were extremely watered down. Ordered many shots, but all of them tasted like mainly water and a bit of alcohol..
