Great bar staff. Well priced. Not too crowded. All the 'kids' must be at the clubs, this venue was primarily an over 35's spot. Live music. Clean bathrooms.

Good food, good cocktails and amazing service. Thanks Britney for awesome service, getting us a front row seat to the game. Food was awesome, steak well cooked and best cocktails in Queenstown.

Ordered the seafood chowder. It wasn’t like a nice creamy chowder with heaps of flavour. It was more like a flavourless purée. For $28 I was super disappointed. My boyfriend had the bangers and mash which he enjoyed.

The place was packed as the rugby final was on. The meals were great and my husband had a tasting plate of wines and enjoyed them all. The garlic bread was so so so delicious

We arrived at The Ballarat when the band was in full throttle, and we had an awesome night. The manager even let the band play an extra hour because the place was jumping.

Called in and had a drink, for us this was our most expensive beer in Queenstown. $22 for just over 2 half pints of beer.

Quaint setting, welcoming and lively atmosphere. I had the burger with beer fries and jalapeños - it was a huge serving and very tasty. If I lived in Queenstown this would be one of my regular places to go.
