Cuisine: A La Carte, Cafe, New Zealand
Price Point: Mains from $15 - $30

The original outpost of New Zealand’s much loved Joe’s Garage franchise is still as convivial and charismatic as when it opened its doors all the way back in 2000.

Bring the family for dinner, your mates for a drink or that special someone to enjoy Kiwi-comfort food in an al fresco courtyard with an atmosphere that’s so relaxed it’s practically horizontal.

All the classic Joe’s flavours are still there: burgers, rolls, steaks and hot chips, as well as decadent new flavours such as oriental-style beef salad and Moroccan lamb patty with grilled halloumi.

Estrella Damm and a selection of local craft beers, Kiwi wines and cocktails keep the good vibes rolling while little ones will go wild for the thick, frothy milkshakes and fresh fruit smoothies.

There’s a reason Joe’s Garage has been a favourite with locals for nearly 20 years and probably will be for the next 20. This is the sort of place where old friends make new memories and families bond over delicious home cooking. Book a table and see for yourself!

Im in love of this place, always go for coffee which is the best in town and the staff are super nice but the burger was delicious, and the fries are for sure the best in town! Thanks for the service and lovely food

Great service and yummy food. We went there with 2 kids. There were toys & colouring paper to keep them occupied. Ordered steak, beef salad and kids meal fish n chips & chicken burger, we're all happy with our meal. Our favourite drink was the raspberry thick shake.

Myself and two friends dined here on 05/04/19 both friends had varying dietary requirements (celiac & vegan). The guy (who's name I don't know) was excellent in catering to their needs, he understood the difference between gluten intolerant and celiacs and knew enough about the menu to swap out certain ingredients on the vegetarian menu to tailor make it to a vegan diet. The service was amazing from start to finish and that alone is enough for me to return! I ordered the steak which was cooked to perfection (Med rear) it was lacking in flavor but nothing a bit of salt and pepper couldn't fix.

The manager on duty was very accommodating with our seating time, it meant for a nice night out with our family. Great for kids and the food is good homecooked style. We will always be back to Joes!

Great restaurant down Searle Lane. Pretty disappointing they didn’t have any tap beer when we were there, nor any chicken dishes. Apart from the lack of options, Joes Garage was great. Nice place and even better service!

Joe's Garage is quirky and has a warm and welcoming atmosphere. We dined as a family with two children and there is no children's menu available.....the milkshakes went down a treat. The polenta first are amazing and the best we've had, but the schnitzel, chicken ciabatta main and steak main were small portions and very basic. Not a place for the hungry.

A nice and secluded J’s Garage, cozy and intimate inside. My partner loved every bit of his Joker roll and the crispy Kumara fries, but if you like lamb you’ll enjoy their El Morocco as much as I did!
