Really rude male staff member not helpful at all. Asked simple questions about what's on the menu which was met with rude sarcastic remarks. The female waitress came to assist who was lovely and helpful.

Got a grab one voucher for 2 burgers and 2 sides. Turned up and the place didn't look like much from the outside, but went in and was pleasantly surprised! They had the fire going and it was so cosy and the staff were welcoming, the drinks selection was good. Our meals came out quickly and it was so tasty... More

Superb time..my little one played the arcade machine for free, local guy played guitar for a bit, and then the food came. Huge portions handmade burgers and onion rings, squid salad and kids Fish n chip all at great prices!... More

We just popped in for a few drinks; great selection of craft beers and ciders both on top and bottled. Nice atmosphere, and a nice outdoor seating area.

Just happened upon this place, it looked interesting so we gave it a try. We were only going to have a beer here, then we found a craft beer we really liked so we stayed for another and ate here too. The food was good but the beer was better!

Great atmosphere, very friendly and helpful staff, excellent selection of craft beers and other beverages, main menu never disappoints and their daily specials are always delicious and exciting. Happy hour prices for drinks can't be beat! Live local entertainment most nights definitely makes Thirty30 one place I recommend to anyone visiting the Bay of Islands, you will not be disappointed!
