Sitting on the water's edge, this eatery and bar is all about seafood and BBQ.

Inspired by dishes from around the world, the menu offers small plates, large plates and a special selection for ‘group tasting’. Taste sublime seafood dishes like tuna poke with avocado, Asian prawn tacos or seared market fish. From the BBQ, tuck in to lamb ribs, 16-hour-smoked beef brisket and the awesome wagyu beef burger. Finding it too tricky to pick just one delicious dish? Opt for a few selections to share.

The Culpeper has a damn fine selection of craft beer, cocktails and other delicious tipples to boot. I t’s the perfect spot for a cocktail or two after five and a casual dinner with friends. The Culpeper is all about food, friends and making the most of every moment.

The atmosphere and service here were incredible, we will be back! My friends Tuna Poke was the best she'd ever had, my ribs didn't have much meat on and were very tough but she was happy. I did get eaten by bugs so make sure you take insect repellent but for the service we received it was worth it

It was a glorious Sunday evening and my sister and I had escaped our small children and headed out with our mum for an evening of good food and wine, as well as a trip to the theatre. We were given a warm and sunny table outside and, as we often do, pondered the menu for quite some time, the delicious sounding food on offer leaving us very undecided about which way to turn. The waiter was incredibly patient and helpful as he guided us through it. We decided on one large plate, a few small plates to share and some curly fries, along a glass of bubbles each, as we waited, and a glass of rose with our meal. The Smoked Pepper & Polenta Fried Chicken was crispy and delicious, the Alabama white BBQ sauce a perfect accompaniment to add a bit of zing. The Smoked Brisket Tacos were full of flavour and the BBQ Prawn Salad (with whole barbecued prawns) were refreshing and tasty. Our larger plate was the Boston Butt Pulled Pork which was superb and would’ve gone well in a potato bun, however, it was more than fine on its own, and the curly fries as our side, were more than enough. We were very impressed with the Culpeper and hope to return to try some more of their divine food.

We couldn't fault the Culpeper, the service was very attentive & friendly, an awesome location looking from the viaduct towards the Maritime Museum but best of all was the food. We had the ribs & the prawn salad for mains & both were more than we could eat but absolutely mouth watering. We will definitely be back...

We have gone to many restaurants using first table but Culpeper is the only one that we were compelled to return to after going there the first time a few months back. We knew we had to go back! We were not disappointed the second time either. The curly fries are the BEST and the steak is great too!!
Very prompt friendly service.
Would absolutely recommend!

We had a wonderful family celebration at The Culpeper on Friday night. Nine of us were all seated together at a lovely huge table. We loved being close to the water, the service was very quick and the food was delicious. It was a great finish to a very special day.

Service at The Culpeper was attentive, food was served quickly, and the quality and quantity of the meals are good. The restaurant is managed by the same folk who run Euro, so you know that you're in for quality dishes that are well prepared by experienced staff. The Mac-n-Cheese as a side is delicious, especially with the added crumb. Will definitely come back!

First time dining here for me, I loved the look and feel of the bar area, great colours! the restaurant is a causal set up with open view to the kitchen, also a great feel. All our food came in a timely manor and was great! I dined with friends so 4 of us in total, we all different meals which were great. I would defiantly go back to try some more dishes.

My best friend and I had my birthday brunch here, it was fantastic. We ended up getting 1 large plate - brisket and 2 small plates - Mac and cheese and the Asian prawn tacos. The brisket was delicious so juicy and the slaw was a great addition to it. We ordered a potato roll mainly because it sounded interesting but from what we saw it just looked like a regular bread roll - we ate it with the brisket and I must say it was a good choice regardless. The Mac and cheese exactly how I’ve always dreamed of making. So creamy it’s a great choice. The prawn tacos was a good balance to our meal - light and spicy, maybe a bit too much noodles for what I would want but that’s not a big deal. Our waiter was nice friendly and polite, he asked if we’d like dessert but they ran out of the key lime pie ! I definitely need to come back to try that :)

Fantastic experience at the Culpepper over labour weekend. We were seated quickly and ordered the brisket, pulled pork, ribs, chicken and a few sides to share between four. All of the large plates were delicious (especially the brisket) and the service was great. We will definitely be returning to the Culpepper again!

We all had an enjoyable time, nice place with great view. Service was top notch and the food was amazing! The prawn entry was scrumptious. Two of us had the salmon, it was delicious and cook to perfection, so is the cheese burger and steak. Love the apple pie and donut dessert, just delicious! Definitely will be coming back and trying your other menu. :)

Made our first booking through First table. Chose The culpepper due to them having a decent children’s menu

On arrival the seating was quick. Could choose between inside or out. The waitress was lovely and attentive, even stopping to tell miss 4 about how yum her lunch choice is which went a long way with her .

Was pleased to see healthy options on the side of children’s dishes.

Food was beautifully presented . First time using both First table and going to The culpepper. Would go back to The culpepper again and would use first table next time looking for a new place to try.

Highly recommended
