Something really different and has a special feel about it. It a BYO so grab a nibbles basket or a Ferg burger & hop down to the wharf for a bevy - mould wind at this time of year is a winner. Recommended.
PS beautiful rescue dog - big placid greyhound in attendance :)

Dear Mickaela Bo, this is exactly what was advertised. You definitely should have read the signs as it's just a bar on the water with BYO food

Stopped and had a couple of cocktails after realising the local pubs were a bit loud for us - perkys is a really beautiful spot and the manager was friendly and awesome. Definitely recommend for a cute and unique drink stop!

Unbelievably cheap ($20!) delicious burger fries and beverage combo in stunning unique environment on a moored 2 story launch on the lake. Great place to watch the sun setting over the Remarkables.
A local shop assistant recommend it for a drink and easy bite - I can see why.
Drinks are served on the boat and he orders in your burger and fries from a local place. Both our meals were delicious. Can upgrade your drink beyond the house drinks to mulled wine or other beers or wines for a small extra cost. Great service too. Will be back.
