Enjoyed a family meal here. Very well-priced tasty burgers (couldn't figure out if fries were included in the price, as it doesn't say on the menu), with quality house-made patties and yummy fillings. Calamari was delicious too. Great selection of beers on tap and better...than average wines. The live music is a bit intrusive, so book a table indoors if you want to avoid this. Overall we were really happy with the food and atmosphere and will be back.More

Booked a dinner out with the family for a special occasion at Porthouse. Turned up and they said they had no booking and questioned us like we were lying, Showed us their booking list and we weren't on it. So we showed them the call...log on our phone to prove we rang them. The person on the phone just didn't write anything in like she didn't care They just stood and just looked at us making us feel awkward and embarrassed. Did not offer drinks or a solution. She then went to what looked like the manager and right in front of us he just shrugged his shoulders and brushed it off like it was nothing. That's when I got pissed off and we walked out. Will let everyone I know hear about these guys.More

I've visited a few times in recent years - the pizzas are tasty, and there's a reasonable range of drink options. Plenty of tables inside and out.

Driving up from Auckland for the weekend - did a phone order as we drove up the Bynderwyns. Picked up the hamburgers on the way through. Happy with the result.

We got a voucher for the Porthouse for our wedding in 12th October 2019. I had my operation on the 6th November, as you are all aware, with a 10 week recovery. We did not know we had less than 7 weeks to use a...$160 meal voucher. Under the circumstances they would not accept it. The owner told us that they refused a voucher 2 days over last week. DONT GO TO THE PORTHOUSE EVER.....THEY ARE THIEFS.More
