Situated on the busy and bustling Cuba Street in one of the more eclectic areas of Wellington - Grill Meats Beer was a wonderful hidden gem with a great selection of legendary craft beers to suitably live up to it's name!

We started with the Japanese Fried Chicken (absolute must!) and Bacon & Mozzarella Loaded Potato Puffs with paired beers as suggested by our well-informed and knowledgeable waitress. Both dishes were a good size and were the perfect warm up for our main affair. I opted for the Nashville Hot Chicken Burger (no bun) and my partner chose the Guest Burger of the Week, which was none other than a GMB take on the legendary Philly Cheese steak sandwich. Definitely did not disappoint, portion was great and just what we needed for a Friday dinner! Unfortunately had no room for dessert on this occasion, but eager for our next visit to try the S'Mores Sundae - looked incredible!

Thanks for a great first night to our weekend away in Wellington - look forward to returning :)

I really like the vibes here. the setting is cosy and comfortable. We had the mussels for starters which were so damn good, we will back for these! the sauce it's cooked in, was divine, garlicky and sea-like. We found to be near full after our starters alone. when the burgers arrived we really needed a breather to tuck in! really enjoyed burgers, salad and brioche bun is heavenly and sizing was spot on although we couldn't finish chips and no way could we even think about desert! overall a great experience with fantastic friendly service. Will be back for sure!

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.

Burgers are always on point. Never had a bad burger here and the burgers of the week are truly special. Safe are helpful and alway there if you need them.

Took my Swedish friend there for her last dinner in New Zealand. I think you guys made her really happy with the food which I hope she will remember for a long time to come.

This place has lost its mojo...there is no service from the staff, no front of house and the food is just ho hum- had the chicken burger which was burnt black and dry as...the steak was okay but had not been seasoned so ad no flavour...no surprise it is now on First Table...

Delicious food and the service was good.

We had a rare opportunity to go out as a family for some lunch (2 adults and a 3 month old). Seating was comfortable and the service was excellent. Very relaxed. Great selection of beers including some tasty low strength options which compliment a burger. We over ordered, as you do but made a stellar effort to clear the table. The brisket burger was tasty and tender - not too heavy so you could get through the sides. Definitely a winner! Also tried a beef burger with bacon and hot zombie sauce. A bit messy to eat but real juicy with the right amount of kick.

Great food and ambience. The mussels are a must and so are the buffalo wings. We will definitely be back.

The food here is first rate. The burgers are huge and full of flavour and the spicy chicken wings we had to start were awesome. Add to that a massive selection of quality craft beers, its hard to fault Grill Meats Beer. A great experience.

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.

Friendly staff. Great food. The steak was very tender and the pork ribs and coleslaw were lovely. My son enjoyed the burger. We would dine here again and recommend it. Thanks very much.

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.

- dined at Grill Meats Beer on

Such a nice atmosphere, would be great place for a date or a group get-together. Food was absolutely amazing, many options and the service was prompt and helpful.

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.
