Fantastic service through and through, very lovely and comfortable people who made us feel welcome and attended to throughout! The starters were so so nice, mozarella and jalapeno hush puppies were a personal fav, their hidden away under the sides not the starters so don't miss out on them! Burgers were nice, we had the smokin hash and the nashville hot chicken (chicken was our fav) and the smore's sundae for dessert was so so so nice!!! All around was a really lovely dinner (:

I indulged in the WOAP winning burger Piggy McPigface. The first bite was bursting with delicious flavors. The best burger ever, washed down with Parrotdog Bitter Bitch beer. My friend had the Nashville Hot Chicken burger and couldn't put it down. Brilliant.

Our party of 3 had an absolute stellar time eating and drinking here! There was something for all of us: with the craft beer snob happily delving into the quality tap beer range (special shoutout to the Funk Estate Threeway Pale Ale); the discerning foodie salivating over such delights as the Wagyu Steak, the bacon relish (in the miss piggy burger), and the Pohutukawa smoked icecream; and myself, the easiest to please, blown away by everything but especially into the natural wood wall in the ladies bathroom which gave the space an incredible scent of pine. In summation a really special meal here, improved by the lovely servers, and something which we will definitely be repeating.

If I could rate it higher than a 5, I would. The food was divine, best meal I've eaten in a long while. Staff were informative, attentive and friendly without being intrusive. The pohutakawa peach icecream was a highlight, as was the melt-in-your-mouth steak. Can't stop thinking about Grill Meats Beer!

Great experience, Japanese fried chicken was absolutely delicious for entree, mains were great too. Our waitress was lovely, absolutely rushed off her feet being the only one there at the time and they were super busy but we still got as much attention as we needed. Excellent experience overall.

Our visit centred around catching up with a friend. We shared the popcorn market fish which was nice. For mains we had a Nashville hot Chicken burger which delivered on heat and flavour. A guest burger of the week which was an ok burger but didn't deliver the heat it promised. The other main was the wagyu which was great. Deep fried ice cream was good to finish but the s'mores sundae was a bit heavy and sweet.
The service was great, attentive but not intrusive.
Overall a nice meal and a nice place to catch up with friends.

As a regular diner at GMB, this booking did not disappoint. The food was a good as ever and the beer choices were excellent.
Although this was a First Table booking, we could choose where to sit and taking a position that overlooked the kitchen was a great way to see the chefs at work.
The service was not obtrusive, but was friendly.
Overall another enjoyable casual Burger and Beer night.

Totally yummy food and incredibly friendly wait staff. We all had different meals - burger, fish curry, steak and popcorn chicken - and it was all really tasty. If you like donuts, the fried ice cream is also a winner! Wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

Food came out quickly and restaurant was nice and chilled and not too busy. Shared the japanese chicken and mussel starters (both amazing!) and then I had the wagyu steak and partner had the ribs. Steak was very nice but portion wise was happy I was paying 50%. Ribs were good and very big portion size - but starters did surpass the mains.

We got there early and a friendly and bubbly waitress told us we could sit anywhere (place want busy yet, it was 4pm) so we chose a nice table and got comfortable.
Straight away we had water brought to the table, which was nice. Wait staff was happy to answer questions and told us about the day’s special.

I’ll cut straight to the food - I got the spicy chicken burger and my partner got the classic beef burger. Both came out at a perfect time (wait wasn’t too long, and not suspiciously short either).
The burgers were juicy. Meat was great, the buns were soft (brioche I think?) and all burgers come with fries and dip. At first I thought the frie serving was a bit small, but it turned out to be just right. Quality over quantity!
We were both full and happy by the end of it. 10/10 would recommend if you’re wanting to satisfy your burger cravings.

Food is pretty average. Buffalo wings was soaked in a pool of oil. Their classic burger was pretty bland and dry. Wagyu steak was good and fries were what you’d expect fries to be.

We had a fantastic time at Grill Meets Beer, with exceptional service and fried chicken to die for. Speaking of, we couldn’t move after our huge meals but that’s the way we like it. Food coma for the win! Wish we had room for dessert, but rest assured we will be back...

Sooooooo goooood! We came here during a weekend away for from our home town Gisborne for lunch on a Sunday.. The food was amazing, tasty and presented nicely. Staff were friendly and attentive. I so loved the crispy Japanese chicken and the poutine curly fries. Mmmm. Also had the peri peri chicken which had a good spicey kick but not too much so was perfect. The potato salad that went with that was delicious. Other meals eaten at our table were the fish and the ribs which got high praise also. For a drink we ordered the home made lemonade which we all enjoyed.

Would definitely come back here and recommend to family and friends to try it out. Everything was so tasty. Just wish I had room in my stomach to try the deep fried icecream desert. There’s a baby taking up space in there too though so it wasn’t going to happen. Lol.

Nice meal, we had some tasting plates to share. Curly cheesy fries and Gravy were delicious. Buffalo wings were really spicy, we ended up playing a who dares to eat one more as they were really tasty but boy they were hot!. Would recommend to others as a place to go.

Food was fantastic - the bavette steak was beautifully rare with a tasty, warm mustard and the chicken burger and chilli chips went down a treat Brilliant, attentive service that paid attention but did not hover around. Plastic water glasses were a bit odd but that did not detract from the tastiness of the food and the great service.
