Have been going to sweatshop for years, but never really for food until I saw it on first table. This is my second time in the last month going for dinner and the food is great! The new layout is so good and the decor is always cool, but even cooler with all the flags in support of RWC19! Lovely waitress from Argentina was so good at her job!

What an awesome way to spend a Thursday! Also, such a cool concept and also having a 2 hour time slot meant that I was still able to get home at a reasonable hour which is a bonus!

Rainy day yesterday and all I need was comfort food. What I mean by this is...FEAST TIME!

Did my last minute booking through First Table (my fav)

We got the Mega Smokehouse Platter coz smoked meat is Sweat Shop Brew Kitchen"s signature item!

Well...here I go listing whats in the platter:
//48hr smoked beef brisket - super juicy and for some reason it tasted like corned beef!
//½ rack pork ribs - Mannnn...you can pull the meat apart easily! My boyfriend usually dislike eating ribs but he said it was his favourite in the platter!
//pork belly - the menu said pulled pork but we got pork belly instead which I prefer too! Just a ted overcooked but the layer of fat did its justice.
//smoked chicken - very smoky and soft
//beer mustard, onion jam, blue cheese mayo - three variety of sauces
//house slaw - thank goodness it wasnt a mayo slaw! The slaw used vinagarette dressing and it defintiely helped me with digesting the food
//hoppy flatbreads - a thin slice of bread where I can put ma meat and vege on

I would definitely recommend you to try this place and order their smokehouse meat with a few beers!

The service here was second to none - seated immediately and made to feel welcome from the moment we arrived. You might think that's a weird thing to point out but we had been a place the day before that did none of those things so it was noted. The food options were plentiful for our group (we had a vegetarian and pescatarian in the party) and delicious! We tried a number of options and they did not disappoint. If you are in 2 minds about whether to try I say give it and a go and am pretty sure you won't be disappointed!

Sweat Shop taste bud heaven!!!
The food is delicious!!! We tried almost all of the peckish plates and loved every single bite. The range of sauces that came with our plates were all divine!
Full, happy tummies all round!
We also ordered cocktails- YUM. When mine arrived it appeared small but my gosh it packed a punch and it was yummy, yummy, yummy!
Service was top notch as well.
Highly recommend!
Just what we needed for our anniversary celebration :)

The atmosphere here is amazing. The setup is pretty cool with the outdoor area, bar area, brewery, barber and dining area.
Customer service upon arrival and throughout our dining experience was good.
The food was very yummy but surprisingly we had to order more than normal as we found the food we ordered wasn't fulling. Cocktails were pretty yummy as well!
We would definitely come back but potentially order a different range of food items.

The entrée fried belly nibs (or something) are amazing! The pizza is less than memorable, the burger is great. Friendly and helpful staff, always there when we needed them. :)

The food was excellent, however the service was extremely poor.

When we walked into the bar, we had to wait for half a minute at the front door and get the attention of one of the multiple staff members so we could find out where we were seated.

Our server spoke to us once to take our order, and never spoke to us after that - although every other table at the time that we were there regularly had someone going to their table - we were never asked how our experience was going.

After the wonderful food we had, the service and treatment of us as patrons left a bitter taste in our mouths. We felt we were treated as lesser than the other patrons due to us using First Table. We would not return because of this experience, it was such a shame to have the great food complemented by poor service.

The food was good and the proportions were generous but the service wasnt very good. We never received cutlery or napkins and had to get the attention of the servers to get any additional drinks. The restaurant wasnt even very busy.the food runner was friendly and gave good service.

We absolutely enjoyed the atmosphere the food and the service.

Being previously, lunch time is a lot more relaxed and quieter making the atmosphere more enjoyable. It did however take a significantly long time for the food to come out once ordered! When it did arrive it was delicious.

Definitely will be back again to try more menu items and beers!

Laura Lindsay

What an amazing venue, the place is huge! It was quiet when we arrived with only a few other diners. Loved the booths (and the heaters!!). Staff and service was good, we weren't pressured to order.

Overall the food wasn't bad (large meat platter and szechwan squid), but unfortunately no stand out dish (apart from the mustard that packed a good punch).

Worth a visit through FirstTable but probably wouldn't go back and pay full price.

- dined at Sweat Shop Brew Kitchen on

Absolutely lovely as usual, thank you

Cool place, really great service, and the food was tasty. Got the big meat platter to share, and was more than enough for two people - great value!

We really enjoyed the setting at Sweatshop. Nice vibe, great location, lots of different spaces to hang out in. Food was good but service was non existent. The server took our initial food and drink order, brought the food and drinks and we literally didn't see him again until we left and paid.

Very bar food style! Which of course was expected. Service was ok however did enjoy ourselves there. Great atmosphere in there
