Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Disappointed. Thought we had finally found a coeliac safe place to eat for some tired travellers. Unfortunately the opening hours are incorrect on multiple places online and even on the main door. Not open for a late-ish lunch.

Quirky American diner style joint serving burgers, hot dogs and all day breakfasts. We really enjoyed our burger and breakfast and the chicken tenders were also super fresh tasting. Service was also on point, very happy. The only sticking point was that they don’t accept...Apple Pay which meant we had to go back to the hotel to grab a credit card. Not sure where on planet earth doesn’t accept Apple Pay in 2023 but whatever, a lovely meal nonetheless.More

Best breakfast in Christchurch hands down. Amazing service and huge portions..what a surprise stumbling on this today. I had the southern Benny with milk fried chicken..had mushrooms on the side..came with a massive crispy hash brown and coleslaw..chicken crispy but juicy inside..was sublime!! Hubby got...the veg omelette and it was perfectly cooked oozing with cheese and well cooked veggies. I'll definitely be back for lunch and dinner when I'm back in CHCH. The waitress was super efficient and nice..bill was ready when plates empty so no waiting. Hats off to the chef for the execution... everything cooked to perfection. Best breakfast I've ever had!!More

Restaurant was half full at 1100am. We were told there was no seating available. We noticed that less than half the tables had eaten, or were eating. Why bother going here?

We had an excellent meal here today..service was friendly and prompt and very accommodating when I asked for a slight variation to a burger. Nothing was a trouble. Drinks and food were served quickly. Delicious burger, and yummy well cooked fries at a reasonable cost....Very interesting and capturing decor. Good atmosphere. Nice and clean. We were definately happy with our experience.More

Our food was great and dessert was even better, caramel banana split. Service was slow, had to wait for order to be taken and for dessert order too.

It really isn’t acceptable to have no tuna for the menu. I can understand no ribs, no bacon and no eggs. Of 8 of us three had our orders rejected due to shortages. The staff were inattentive and had to be asked to serve us:...food really not good. Oh and tuna - it’s a cheap as chips, comes in a can, long shelf life … how can you run out?More

Service was friendly but flustered. Like many businesses this place needs more staff. Food ok, but filter coffee, only. Neat decor and concept, spoiled a little by staff shortages but very busy the weekend we were there.

Went with a mate and her 3 kids who absolutely enjoyed the fun sheet they were given upon arrival. Our server was very attentive and the food was tasty. I would definitely come back when I return to Christchurch

Looking for a quick breakfast. No booking so seated at the bar, in front of the sink. Asked to move to a less dirty area. The restaurant was clean btw, just didn't want to be near dirty dishes. Breakfast arrived & it was disappointing. It...was either cold, dried up or over cooked. Had to ask for my mushrooms, which were yum. Young team but worked hard. Maybe a smile might help. Probs won't go back.More

This American-style diner from the ‘50s is authentic and popular. We went for breakfast. The menu is full of American favourites and the booths are fun. The place is shiny and clean. We all enjoyed the food and the filter coffee is better than in...the US.More
