Gather your friends and come on down to Joe’s Garage Five Mile, where good vibes and great bites are guaranteed.

This brand-new branch from the much-loved Kiwi brand is as laid back as the rest and with the same team as the original Queenstown central branch, you know you’re in safe hands.

Sit back, relax and get stuck into a straight-up menu of comfort classics that are big on flavour. Think exotic salads, juicy burgers, traditional-crust pizza and wholesome mains like the Cheeky Joe, a signature braised beef cheek hotpot. Don’t miss the house special, a killer Caesar salad finished with garlicky croutons and a runny egg.

Wash it all down with fresh juices, Kiwi craft beers and quality local wines.

Joe’s Garage is a Queenstown-born crowd-pleaser, that’s open ‘til late every day of the week.

Really impressed, great location and great food.
Staff were super friendly, couldn’t fault it. We couldn’t fit in dessert but we did have cocktails after dinner. They were yummy, well made.
Joe’s Garage is definitely worth a visit.

Really impressed, so nice to have more restaurant choices in Frankton. Great friendly service and food was the best. My pork meal was huge, complete with crackling, my husband had steak salad which was also a good size and wonderful flavours. Can't believe we actually had dessert as well, banana split & affigato, really yummy. The menu is excellent so hard to choose. Will definitively be going back

Jo's garage is a must do. We ordered kids pizzas which we thought were the size of adults and ordered a pizza off the main menu that was massive. We also ordered the roast vege salad. Everyone left full and satisfied and we took lots of left overs home too. We will be back again Jo's garage. Absolutely delish and value for money!!

..beyond my expectations! I have visited Joe's in town previously, and thought it good, but the Frankton location was exceptional! Bright, open, friendly...and most importantly: great food!!!

Lovely dining experience with friends.
We all had burgers and 2 of us had the gluten free buns which were really nice, polenta fries topped off our delicious burgers even though they came with fries. A couple of cocktails and a glass or two of wine completed our evening. Our young waiter was attentive and helpful throughout our dining experience. Thanks Joe's we will be back.

We were very happy with our gluten free pizza and burger. The salmon salad was also very nice and great portion size.
For cocktails I asked for frozen passion fruit margaritas and it was delicious!
We love going to Joe’s at five mile and also in town as we always had good experiences with the service and food, specially with delicious gluten free options.

The staff were great, the food was great and we had a nice quiet table where we could have a decent yarn. We couldnt fit dessert unfortunately but had a few drinks which were really reasonably priced. Will definitely eat there again. Great spot too at the 5 mile centre!

Great food, well priced, wonderful staff and cool atmosphere. We will be back

- dined at Joe's Garage Five Mile on

Food was good quality and more substantial than we were expecting (split the burger between us and took virtually a full pizza home). Fit out is great, the space is light and breezy and the views of the mountains were unexpected.

We dined at Joe’s Garage on a Friday night and enjoyed the experience. We would certainly go back. At 5 pm it was crowded with patrons in the bar area and was very noisy, however things quiet ended down closer to 6 pm. Service was excellent from Molly our waitress. The starter course - kumara wedges with aioli sauce was flavoursome but a little over cooked. The mains - pork belly with cole slaw was very good. The helping of pork belly was huge - about double the usual and absolutely tender but also with plenty of crackling. The salad was under the meat but would have been better on the side. There is a very good selection of wines and beers.

I ordered chicken with my Caesar salad but it came without chicken, which was dealt with really quickly so that was good! The salad came with too many anchovies for my taste and my partners steak had been ordered medium rare but it was more like medium to well done. The flatbread we ordered as a starter was a little burned as well. (We had to leave some black bits).
From the reviews I thought the food was going to be really good, but it was a little disappointing to be honest. The place is nice though and the staff was friendly. Prices are decent so might try again and hope for a better chef next time around.

Amazing looking place in an easy location, great clean environment with amazing staff. The food was pretty good! The flat bread had to much salt on it which made it almost unable to be eaten but apart from that it was great.

Great experience, loved the food, and really enjoyed the music coming through the sound system.

We were impressed with the dinner menu options and felt that they represented excellent value for money. The pork belly was an absolute winner!! Really great surroundings - fantastic view of the Remarks. Staff really friendly and accomodating. Will definitely return to again for an evening meal.

- dined at Joe's Garage Five Mile on

This is the forth time we have dined here and love the place. Great vibe, friendly helpful staff and the menu keeps me wanting to come back again.
Even loved the music they play!
Last night I had the steak with mushroom sauce - very tender, cooked to perfection and lots of yummy mushrooms. Baked New York Cheesecake with raspberries - devine!
Will certainly be back again...and again

Great yummy food. I had the Easy Tiger Salad with a side of chips and gravy. Both were delicious. There was a bit of an issue with the time it took to get our desserts but the staff were aware and gave us our drinks for free. Its how they ‘fix’ the situation that counts. So A+ for that.

Great surroundings and friendly efficient place. So nice to take kids anywhere where they are welcomed. Costs were very reasonable and using First Table even more so. We didn't order until 30 minutes past our reservation time and staff us just to wait until we were ready which was really appreciated.

Wil go back and next time we'll try the breakfast!

Joe’s Garage at 5 Mile bears no resemblance to the original concept in Queenstown by the creek when it really was a garage. Sadly, this version is just a large and noisy pub.
We enjoyed the service which was friendly and efficient but both felt our fish and pork belly meals were a tad dry and bland.
On the plus side, the prices are reasonable and I would return for a beer and chips/pizza on a sunny day.
