Been here for lunch on previous occasions so knew the food would be good, and it was. Good atmosphere, friendly staff plus entertainment, local knitters group and the greyhounds were running too, and of course the food which was good and plenty of it well cooked...too much to eat.

Excellent service, excellent food, great value for money. I went there with my Mum, Husband and 4 year old son and the staff were very accommodating. They bought out colouring in stuff to keep my son entertained while waiting for the food and when it came out, moved us to a bigger table so everything could fit and we could eat comfortably.
I would definitely go there again!!

The food was amazing, but it was the service that really shined at Spectators. They went above and beyond to make sure we had everything and that our drinks were always full. Thank you to the Event Manager who was a star in our eyes. We left the place one very happy family.

They were extremely busy due to a concert at the arena. The wait time was pretty good considering. My dining companion and I enjoyed our meals but thought the mains were a bit expensive.

We were greeted by the manager and it was easy going and welcoming.
Nothing seemed a bother.
As it was Sunday night " kids eat free he explained that it was one or the other and would work out best deal at the end....Nice!
We were served quickly and the kids were looked after.
Kids menu great.
Wife had tandoori burger and we got a large pizza.
The service was friendly and the food came quickly.
The kids loved the room outside... running around.
We had a couple of beersies
But then as we were leaving the manager was at our car window and stated we'd been over charged.
He handed over $40 and apologised for the error.
Nice.... good to see honestly still exists
Defo be returning.
Lovely setting pretty much like a club (RSA).
Kid friendly.
And nothing was a bother.
Thanks Spectators for a wonderful meal
Matt ;)

The food portion is huge. We had duck salad, and sole fillet with chips and salad. They were lovely presented and delicious. It is good value for money. We are definitely going back there with plenty of parking space and good friendly service.
