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 ❤️❤️

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.

Unfortunately we had a pretty average experience in the way of service. We arrived got seated & no drink were offered. 10 minutes later we got served, not sure if they do this all the time but our order wasn’t written down but we trusted that our order will be correct. We had a wait of 50 minutes from when we ordered to when our food arrived... and they had forgotten our sons meal. We were apologised too & got a round of drinks shouted as well as our dessert. Except for the service & wait time the food was perfect, and I’ll definitely be back for the food and maybe a better service experience. Could have just been an off night, but they made up for it with the free drinks & dessert and also a dining voucher. I would recommend for the food 100%!

Great to see a stonegrill option on the kids menu. One child chose 2 pieces of beef and the other chose 1 piece of chicken and 1 piece of beef (he said he used some of his dessert stomach to eat all the chicken it was that nice...). Kids meals also came with chips and coleslaw. In an ideal world would be nice to see some different option to coleslaw such as baked beans or raw carrot as kids don't like coleslaw, but all in all, huge hit with the kids.

I had the Ribeye Surf & Turf. Lots of chips with a steak on top (sin in my eyes as steak should just be placed on a plate). Steak really needed a sauce - it was cooked rare (as asked) but lacked that last omph. For $43.90 a sauce option would be great. The bacon overpowered the scallops. Would be nice to have option of kumera chips or potato gratin rather than a huge pile of chips. Rather have a smaller quality amount than quantity.

Husband had the 400g The Cut Stonegrill which was a a nice piece of steak with potatoes and salad. Again, lacked a sauce.

Would be nice to have a plate offered to stand the meat once it's cooked otherwise it is gets overcooked.

Would go back again as kids loved their stone grills but I wouldn't have the surf and turf again. Staff were friendly and welcoming. Would recommend.

Absolutely wonderful place. Service was outstanding from the minute we walked in, right up until we left. We had our Grandson with us who is 2 and a half. The young lady made sure he had crayons and something to colour as soon as we sat down. Food was absolutely beautiful, all of it. Thank you so much CBK for making our experience just perfect
