Have been here a few times now and their food is consistently just above average or good. Have had their fish and chips, great portion size, the fish is amazingly crispy!!! Pork belly that my friend had was good once, but undercooked and chewy the other. Hit and miss. But I will go backfor the variety of beers and the terrace garden.

SMELLY FISH - Have been to Brew on Quay a for few times before and have never had any issues with them. Went there again with a group of colleagues for a work lunch and ordered Fish & Chips. I was truly disappointed by the food quality at that particular time. The fish was really fishy, and I could tell it had been marinated in some sort of alcohol (I guess they were trying to get rid of that fish smell, but acutally made it taste even worth), batter wasn't fully cooked, and chips tasted like those old chips just got heated in microwave. I couldn't even finish half of my food, and the waitress didn't even bother asking if everything is OK with my food or if I need to take away. When I was paying the bill at the counter, I noticed there was a lady on another table who ordered Fish & Chips as well, and she didn't touch her food much either. I didn't speak to the manager due to time constrain, but I do not think I will go back to that place ever again.

I was really appalled by the service that was provided to my colleag...ues and I this afternoon when we went out for lunch!!!!! I ordered fish of the day and received the smallest, piddly fish and was charged $25 for it! My colleagues and I were mortified and when I raised my concerns about it, the manager did nothing and snubbed me. We have sworn never to step foot in that joint ever again!!! MY WORST DINING EXPERIENCE EVER!!!!

We were at the Brew on Quay recently for an engagement party which was hosted upstairs.  Their platters were delicious but with over 50 partygoers, I really had to get on in there and managed to taste their empanadas and pork belly before they were gone :)  Yummy!  I was really impressed with the service, from their charming welsh bartender to the amazing bar staff and bouncers.  They were professional, efficient and attentive.  My sis & I later ordered the pulled pork sandwich and sticky date pudding.  The pulled pork sandwich that came with fries was okay, nothing to write home about.. but that sticky date pudding was absolutely delicious! I loved it and I'm craving it again as I type this.

The "Crispy Fried Squid" was so tender. Delicious herb salt, but not overly salty - just right for our tastes. Also, not greasy - quite a feat for a fried item! We loved it.
Also tasty were the arancini balls.
Washed down with yummy beer, and seated in a very cool historic wooden-partitioned room, with a view out to the port/water.

A very nice place for a bite to eat, a beer, and a feel-good catchup.

Also, a bonus feature of this place, are the very classy ladies loos, complete with carpeted powder room.

Friendly service and good beer.
However the snacks were underwhelming.
One (luke warm) bratwurst sausage was $11 and the buffalo wings were missing the "Louisiana hot butter sauce".

Not value for money.

Mr Lid and I popped in for a quick meal before a show at Vector a short walk down the road.
What a weird space.. Lots of odd rooms decorated kinda modern gothic with a minimalist twist reusing old ugly pub furniture and some nice new spaces. Lucky this is a food review not a interior design site!!
Service was very a tentative almost annoying with three different people asking for our order and checking on us constantly for our short stay- although it took two asks to get a water.
The menu is pub grub the fish and chips was fresh and light the side salad of lettuce and onion was boring. We also shared some mighty tasty chicken nibbles with blue cheese dip they were moist, plump and tasty.
This place would be awesome for a boys night with a huge selection of beers on tap and by the bottle.
I know Mr Lid is dying to go back and sample a few more tasty wares.

Loved coming here for a couple of casual drinks and some awesome snacks. The menu is quite extensive for a place like this. We had some delicious calamari and chicken nibbles which had a massive kick to them! Staff had good knowledge on the beers and picked a couple of great boutique ones for us to try. Lovely place for drinks and snacks

I had the $10 lunch - Beef and Guinness pie- which was good value, plus the selection of beers is very good - Black Sheep and Epic Zythos in bottles for me. Friendly and speedy staff, but do get in early on a Friday lunchtime if you want to get a soft seat on the sofa, as the bar gets busy!

Ate at the Brew bar last week. Had been eating in restaurants for two weeks straight and found the food at The Brew Bar better than most. I ordered the Pork Loin and really enjoyed it. Good value for money - Will recommend and be back !! Thanks
