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.

Excellent service, delicious food and a great drinks range. We had the ribs and the Wagu steak - both cooked to perfection. The garlic bread and creamy slaw were also delicious, as well as the beer and cocktails. Very enjoyable and highly recommended!

Perfect way to spend a late Sunday afternoon - our waiter found the perfect balance of attentive, but not coming over too much when we were his only patrons. The food was delicious and fast. The beer range is amazing!

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...

Great experience, this was a place we usually go anyway. And while 4pm is a little early for dinner, it was well worth it for the price.

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.

Really enjoyed our time at Grill Meats Beer. Tasty food, although we wish the menu was a bit more varied. The Piggy Mcpigface lived up to the hype.

The food was great! My husband had a burger. I had a steak. I would avoid the sundae though as it was mostly marshmallows.

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.

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!

My husband and myself went for dinner on a Sunday evening. We sat there for around four hours with some amazing craft beers, Starters and yummy burgers. We had Nashville Chicken and Beef burger of the week which we felt was one of the unique and best burgers in Wellington. Also loved the cheese sauce. Had a great time.

Awesome people and great food! Customer service was on point, because I’m a picky critic, I do have a few things that if we’re avoided would have been a 10/10. My ribs were yum, but had some bits that were dry. We ordered a burger as a main, had been given the rest of our food but had to ask the waiter if it was coming and they hadn’t taken it down, which was disappointing. However, he whipped it up within 10 mins and one of the people at the table said it was the best burger they ever had so we did not mind the wait at all. We had the Wagu steak the smaller portion was a lot more enjoyable then the bigger portion? It may have been a little bit over done. All the entrees were great. Will definitely return. Thanks!
