The food is good, the service is good. The price is reasonable for the type of food you are getting when compared to similar places around the city.
Meals are usually serviced in 5 -10 minutes.
They also have options for Gluten free as well which is not as common as one would think and a big plus.
Went here for dinner. I was quite excited by the comments I had seen below about this place, but for the open chicken sandwich and chunky chips got less excited by the visit I had. Chips just the normal. But sadly , I wasn’t very impressed with the chicken. For $20, I expected more than a cold chicken sandwich I received. ( served cold apparently). For dinner time I wanted it hot- so they took it back and it still came back warm. So definitely not worth the price if they can’t at least listen to their customers.. Staff were nice, helpful .Atmosphere of the place pretty good too. But, I don’t think I’l be going back in a hurry..
Went here for lunch with a friend and had a few beers!! The meal and beer was amazing , not a thing wrong with that but as for the service!!! We walked in and had to wait for the bar girl to stop talking, we then got givin food menus and went and sat down (outside) about 10 minutes latter the girl once again once she had finished talking to staff , then came out and took our order, all while clicking her pen!! It made us feel as if she wanted us to hurry or to bugger off!!! She was very helpful with helping us choose beer but as for the pen clicking VERY OFF PUTTING!!
Came here the other night and thoroughly enjoyed myself! Helpful and friendly staff plus a warm, relaxed atmosphere started the night off well. My partner ordered the venison pastry pie and loved it, while I had the Craic burger, gluten-free. Clued up staff knew to swap the default beer battered chips with shoestring, which I was happy about. The burger itself was so good! Great place, I really cannot fault it at all. Have recommended to my family already, and we will be going back at some point without a doubt.
Mussells were very well cooked but very small so would have expected more for the price. Tomato juice tasted like flavoured water so when I paid the bill I asked what sort it was- said that it was watery and was told ‘maybe I didn’t shake it enough’- for $7 a glass I think that a decent shake before pouring is a no-brainer. won’t be hurrying back anytime soon.
This was our first dining experience in Dunedin, and we were very satisfied.
Dunedin restaurants lack culture and personality. I think Craic has it right. I ordered Braised Hare. It was so tender, it melted in my mouth. My husband had Bangers n Mash, and was equally pleased with his order. This was also the place that offered our first (of many) taste of Magners cider.
It’s a small bar. But cosy, unique with excellent food. We will definitely be back for more.
My partner took me out here for my birthday dinner on Saturday night, he ordered the steak sandwich and I had the mussel pot as a main. The steak sandwich was huge, but unfortunately the mussel “pot” which was actually a bowl of mussels left me hungry, we asked if they accidentally sent out the entree size, we were told that an entree would only have consisted of 5-6 mussels. I’ve ordered mussel pots at other restaurants and they have been quite substantial 20-25 mussels, the craic serving size are substantially smaller (lucky if it were a dozen) – very odd considering the huge size of other meals. Went elsewhere for desert.
Had dinner at the Craic tonight. This is probably the fifth time I have eaten here now, and have never been disappointed. The food is very tasty, the servings very generous, the atmosphere is nice (though far removed from “fine dining”)and all at very acceptable prices. Great selection of beers and a good wine list as well.
I’ll be back…
I came here for lunch and really enjoyed the relaxed, comfortable atmosphere.
I had the pasta which was absolutely perfect! The staff were very friendly which I very much appreciated (it’s hard to come by these days)
I will definetly be back and recommend this place to other, thank you!
Awesome little bar with great staff and atmosphere! Love it, great music too when they have a band
