Initially my expectation was low. But I was pleasantly surprised once the food arrived. Beef brisket burger was very flavourful. The medium steak wife had was great and those cookie and ice cream pans. Leave room for those. Doesn't matter which you choose they are both delicious. I prefer the peanut butter one. Bit of a drive if you are coming from Christchurch but worth it.

Friendly staff welcomed us on arrival and throughout. Food service was efficient and exactly as the menu described. I had the the steak which was cooked to perfection and others had various burgers which was also delicious. And that's not all... Bonus also selected happy hour drinks 4-6pm. Overall a great experience and we'll recommend.

Our 4th visit, the best Stonegrill in Christchurch. Exceptional food and service. A must have is the peanut skillet cookie, to die for. We will be back.

Great tasting food and fantastic service from Brittany and the rest of the staff.
400g steak stone bake was delicious and no issues swapping the salad for chips.
Be prepared for dessert as it's very easy to be talked into it.

Dined at the CBK Kaiapoi for my mums 80th birthday. The menu has something for everyone. We had starters which we shared of popcorn cauliflower, bacon stoppers and garlic bread. Beautifully presented, and a very unique way of presenting the garlic bread...see pics. For our mains we had stone grills, burgers and fish, very large portions, the salad with the stone grills was absolutely amazing, the best we had tasted in awhile..all side dishes, sauces, were amazing. The burger looked too good to eat. We couldn’t leave without trying the dessert menu..which didn’t disappoint either..served in skillets. Compliments to the chef.
When all done and we had paid, those with the stone grills got to spin the spinning wheel for a further prize to be used on our next visit. Great night had by all. Thank you.

Great food and service, a good range of reasonably priced craft beers on tap and bottled. I had the Surf and Turf-superb. Alongside the nicest side of onion rings I have had in a longtime. A nice atmosphere and an expensive fitout makes for a good looking bar. Will definitely be back. Plus they have an off license so can take home a nice beer

The food was amazing ! The pasta I had was one of the best pastas I’ve had in ages. Our waitress was good. Recommended that we didn’t leave without having their famous skillet cookie !! And I’m glad we did. It was the right size not too big and not too small. So good will definitely be coming back here first table or not ❤️❤️

Food was really quick out of the kitchen and beautifully presented! Meals were big - perfect size for a hungry person! Enjoyed our food whilst doing a taster of 6 of the on tap craft beers which were nice and polished off the evening with a famous skillet cookie! Wouldn’t think twice about coming again

Excellent all round. We had guests from the north island who were very impressed. Also got some free entertainment as it was quiz night. Pleasant and helpful staff and they even tweaked the menu slightly. 100% all round.

2 people had eggs on toast one with bacon on the side. 1 had the full breakfast and 1 had the pancakes which included banana and bacon. All was fairly good until w got to the bacon. Lovely flavour but tough as leather.

Great hospitality as always.
Ordered the waffles. Was delicious! If I could pick a small thing out that I would of preferred better, that would have been the waffles to be more toasted. That may be more of a personal thing though.
Thanks guys and will see you again soon.

Great food for the adults. The kids had the kuds chicken dish which were unexcuting and just out of the box nuggets and chips. I suggest more quality chicken for the kids like tenders and a bit of salad or carrot sticks as colour etc

Had a lovely evening thanks to the kind and friendly staff. The stone grill was a little bit intimidating when it first came out but the meat turned out brilliantly. The skillet cookie was fantastic and all the portion sizes were respectable. Worth a shot in my opinion.

We are regulars here as we live local and always have such a great experience. Service by Hamish is wonderful and always friendly. Drinks and food are served promptly and very delicious. We will continue coming back! Also loved the table by the fire for lunch on a cold winters day. Thanks again :)

The flinstone grill is a fun experience. And the fried crispy chicken was very tasty. However, the regular fish and chips were soggy with too much oil. Varies ranges of beverages to warm up the chilly nights as well- as this place is known for its bar. Good service too.
