"Top spot to eat or chill any time of the day or night. Great coffee, great food, great atmosphere. The staff are fantastic too."

"Been here a few times now for drinks and tapas with some girlfriends. The tapas they have available are delicious! Reasonably priced and fun to pick and choose which we want and share with the group. I wish more places offered this style of food as it really elevates it from a pub to the perfect catch up location with friends."

The Spotted Dog Tavern was established in 2013 after Stephen “Pato” Paterson purchased the Tavern formerly known as Banjo’s Tavern and upgraded it to its present standard.

"Sometimes when you have a great experience and go back a second time it is never as good. Not here, the staff are fantastic, the meals are great (the steak is the best in Queensland). The prices are good. We love this place and keep coming back."

"This would have to be Bundaberg's best eating venue. They make the best chicken burgers and you never go away feeling hungry!"
