Best fish n chips I've ever had, delicious!
Linda Bellman
Prompt service, meals were delicious, hot & quick, & the waitress was terrific! Apart from the dated & unusual layout of the bistro which will shortly be undergoing refurbishment, we were extremely impressed with our experience here!
Irene Rich
Ordered fish n chips for dinner. Didn't taste very fresh. Half a handful of chips. That's just plain rude. Service could've been a little faster, it's not like the joint was packed. Meals are tiny and for the price that's ridiculous. We thought we were receiving an entree.
We decided to go out and eat ,it was getting late, around 830pm most places the kitchens were closing I called Jokers on Ryrie at 830pm asked if they were still open for dinner, which they were they advised us that the kitchen closes at 9pm .
We made our way there 840pm to our surprise we were still offered the full menu which was amazing as kitchen closes in 20min,
We appreciated the service from the young lady who took our order and waitered on our table.
The food was amazing.
W had beef sliders as an entree and steak meals with surf & turf ,crumbed lamb cutlets ,we also ordered 2 of the bread puddings, which were so good.

The vibe and atmosphere were on point, nice chilled dining in the outside area.

what we also noticed and appreciated were the No smoking and No E cigarettes in the outdoor area.

Overall, I recommend checking out Jokers on Ryrie if you're visiting Geelong.
Andrew Stephenson
Great meal once again after completing the festival of Sails at Geelong yacht club, plenty of ice cold beers to go around.
John Spencer
Great place, the guy that looked after us was awesome, even help us with parking, thank you.
Only complaint with the rooms is there is no coffee making facilities. Now this is a serious situation as coffee is a vital life starter in the mornings. For $125 we would have expected that.
Jo Therese
Really enjoyed the experience overall. Food was delicious and such good value. Service was fantastic, served quickly and food came out in respectable time. Definately dine here again.

Had a going away party at Jokers on the wknd, my daughter is going to Europe so was a big deal. Location is perfect, relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff but meals were very average. Going through them:
Beef cheek risotto - pretty good
Mushroom risotto- had potential but under seasoned.
Texan Parma - very nice
Traditional Parma - average
Carbonara - nice
Calamari main - frozen, rubbery rings w chips & salad.
Fisherman's Platter - all cheap, frozen seafood on chips w salad. This was my meal and a complete let down as I paid $38 and not one single item was fresh. Would not recommend at all and unsure how you can justify such an exorbitant price! Very misleading & disappointing meal experience as family members travelled from far & wide to be there.

Garlic bread & arancini balls for entrees were the highlight.
David Mcconachy
Best Parma I have personally had for a long time my wife's veg lasagne and salad excellent and the service was exceptional .Thank you for making our night

Tim Hancock
Service is good, but the food is very over cooked and the fries are cool when arriving to the table.
Lovely fresh food. Nice platting. Serving of the food good. Service is good. Very relaxed environment. I ordered Nachos, Cheesy Garlic Bread, Carbonara, Pan Fried Salmon, and the desserts. It's all YUM! We'll be coming back 😉
Rob Barby
Not bad. Nice food good price. Took nearly 1 hour for our food tho. Apart from that was good.
Georgia Ellis
We hadn't been here since before covid and it used to be amazing. We got yelled at from one side of the bistro and pointed to the table, the nachos were like burnt chips with bolagnaise sauce and burnt cheese, we asked 2-3 times for sauce but it never came. Didn't eat much of it as it was very inedible. Also got a parma and it was okay though

First credit card machine was down so had to pay in the gaming room no big issues
Meals took ages to come we had a fish and chips all was good
A lamb shank with gnocchi it had 1 small lamb shank and 8 bits of gnocchi and 6 bits of pumpkin for $29 totally not worth it
We also ordered a medium porterhouse steak for $36 with chips the smallest salad I've ever seen and mushroom sauce all looked good when it finally came out ate 1/4 of it as it got from being semi cooked to completely raw inside when we took the plate up to show them they offered us more food or a free drink not a refund at all as we had to go to the movies we had to accept a free drink not a great experience and wouldn't recommend it

Banksy's Kitchen
Just had a gf Parma
Chips were crunchy outside soft and fluffy inside
Salad was fresh
Staff very knowledgeable assuring me chips are cooked in a separate fryer
Good job all
Well done
Highly recommended
Mary Cockett
Good menu, fast service, lovely nice sized meal. Didn't like the loud disco beat music. Some softer music might see us coming back.
Decent food. Nice layout and friendly staff
Murry Strickland
Stopped in for a quick drink and ended up staying 3 hours. Great value drinks and food and excellent service from friendly staff. We were there on steak night ($19) for excellent steak, chips and salad. Nice ambience and a flutter on the pokies on offer after great meal and drinks. How refreshing. .cheap drinks.. fantastic steak special cooked to perfection with terrific vegetables and salad .. Nice ambience. . Very efficient friendly staff.. no screaming kids to put up with
Osvaldo Antonio Senna
Very nice warm atmosphere friendly staff great meals good price.
Britt Hughes
Food wasn't to bad, pretty standard pub meals, however 45 minute wait for a garlic & cheese bread & a kids meals is a little ridiculous! Having 5-6 tables in doesn't class as being busy!
Coffee Bay
Came for lunch on a Friday, overall it was a surprisingly good experience. Lunch specials were $10.50, I had the Guinness pie which was good. Others ordered from the standard lunch menu and were happy with their choices. The $16 porterhouse steak was a winner, not only in price but also in quality. The staff were friendly and courteous. It's definitely worth visiting.
