Hi Erika, as far as I know they don't. It's a bar with nibbles but you can take your own food.

Hi, we are located right in the centre of town on the water. If you head down to the lake in the downtown area it will become obvious to you. We are on the Million Dollar Cruise Jetty out the front of Absolute Backpackers... More

Queenstown & New Zealand's only floating bar and coffee shop. Enjoy a hot or cold drink on the water with stunning views with fantastic friendly service. Our vessel is immaculate with plenty of indoor and outdoor seating. So regardless of what the weather you will be very comfortable. Come down and see for yourself, I guarantee you will love it as much I do.
