Is there anything more joyous and summery than a BBQ? We think not and that's why Cleaver & Co never fails to deliver good times, laughter and, most importantly, the most succulent, sizzling, smoky meat you're likely to taste.

How do they achieve such an incredible depth of flavour? You have the Pit Master to thank for that - an inspiring and talented individual who cooks all the meat on their signature Southern Pride smoker which is lovingly named Bertie. And whilst all that meaty goodness is being smoked, scorched and sauteed, all you need to do is sit back in their open and friendly dining room, a craft beer in hand and watch the game on the big screen.

Over at Cleaver & Co, they're not in the habit of holding back. All their BBQ creations come with a mountain of chips and slaw to make it the feast you deserve! With that in mind, consider the sticky St Louis pork ribs, the Angus brisket and maple and black pepper pork belly. Hungry yet?

And you can't have a BBQ without some juicy burgers! The Classic Cleaver is loaded with bacon, cheese, pickles and their own burger sauce, while the hot chicken burger is crispy and tender. And with household names like Macs, Panhead and Steinlager on tap, there's nothing left to do but raise a glass to Bertie!

Reviews

Had a great experience for dinner for our wedding anniversary. Very friendly staff and loved how they were willing to have a genuine conversation with us while maintaining professionalism.
Food was amazing! Great selection of drinks from our home city. Also nice atmosphere.
Would definitely come back and recommend to others.

We had a great evening here, we over-ordered as the choice was so good, the calamari was cooked to perfection, the shared platter beat the men, we brought some home! The burger was huge, and plenty of pork belly served up. Service was good and attentive. We will return but making sure we are very hungry!

What an awesome experience we had at Cleaver & Co Mount Maunganui.
We were welcomed and looked after amazingly well by the super friendly staff and while we sat outside enjoying our beautiful dinner the vibe was even better with the live music that they have playing in the courtyard area.
We will definitely be back and all the food is amazing but we would highly recommend the Pitmaster Platter to share, the Banoffee Cream Pie and the Warm Chocolate Brownie. Thanks so much guys and see you again soon!! :)

Lovely service, great food and very little wait time. The table was set and ready to go and everything was cruisy. The first table discount also took some of the pressure off as well, which gave us the opportunity to try meals that may have been stretching our budget otherwise. Our evening at Cleaver and Co was Great. I can’t recommend them and first table highly enough for anyone wanting a night out without the constant worry about the budget

As soon as you walk in Cleaver and Co you're overcome with that smoky goodness from their kitchen. We had the calimari and chicken wings for starters, a caesar salad, the ribs, pork belly and a burger for mains (there were four of us, not just me lol) Delicious food and excellent, friendly service despite it being a very busy time. Next time I'll try and leave room for dessert because they looked very nice but we were too full, with no complaints. I'd recommend you visit this place

Great waitstaff service. Somewhat limited menu, but meat was so tender, ribs were falling off the bone. The platter was fantastic. We would visit again.

- dined at Cleaver & Co - The Mount on

Great welcome shown to our table promptly. A large variety of alcoholic & non alcoholic drinks available to suit all tastes. Menu had a very good choice but it is predominately a Meat restaurant ( albeit cooked slowly over 14 hours) absolutely worth going there just for the experience. i must admit the Ribs & Brisket were my favourites served with chips & coleslaw with an arrangement of sauces. overall a fantastic experience. would highly recommend

Would definitely go back for me its the best food off first table I've had so far the only down side for me was the wait for desert was beyond a joke

Ribs were awesome, neat how the kids could play outside games while waiting for dessert

- dined at Cleaver & Co - The Mount on

We didn't really know what to expect except that the advertising pics looked pretty yummy. Service was great and when we asked about the platter to share we were told about the larger non-menu platter that was perfect for our two adults and two kids. In fact we were so full we couldn't fit in dessert! The meat (especially the brisket ... and the chicken wings ... oh and the bean & brisket ... actually all of it) was just yummy! We'd recommend a platter (large or small) to get a good sample of what's available.

First time at cleaver and co and we were not disappointed. Great space, nice vibe with live music in the courtyard out front and friendly service.

Great meal out, definitely recommend.

It was my first time. When I went to the restaurant with the first table, I was so happy that there was a reserved seat under my name. The food was excellent. It's got a nice I think it's the best for beer lovers.

Great Food with even better service!

- dined at Cleaver & Co - The Mount on

The service was prompt and friendly. The wait staff took time to explain how the meat was cooked. We chose the sharing plate so we could sample different smoked meats. It was great. We recommend this. We will definitely return. Thanks.
