One of the go to places in Browns Bay, so many good vibes and such an awesome atmosphere! Never had a bad service or night here. Great beer great food and ever better staff to serve it all. Deep Creek have it sorted for sure, they know how to run the place smoothly and the facilities are always clean.
Food is beautifully presented, portions could be bigger but then again I am greedy!

Been here a few times now, I have also noticed portions are smaller, but I still enjoy my meal here.
I have never been disappointed with a meal here, love getting the ribs or the steak. Yum!
The higher bar-like seats can be a bit comfortable, I prefer to sit at a normal table.

Been a regular here since they first opened. I used to strongly recommend Deep Creek to everyone & anyone! However as of late (and I am not the only one to comment on this) the quality of service and food has gone down drastically.

Portion sizes smaller & the prices have increased! On our most recent visit we had dinner using an Entertainment two for one voucher on an early Saturday night. Our order was a meat paddle, the ribs and an order of onion rings to start. Everything came out in about 20-25 minutes, including the onion rings which we were expecting before the meals. The food was good but instead of the kumara fries that used to come with the ribs, it was just standard run-of-the-mill fries.

For the first couple of years Deep Creek was operating I was always greeted by the same smiling staff members which gave the place a nice friendly local touch. Slowly one by one the original employees have disappeared. On Saturday night there were all new faces again except for the duty manager whom I recognised.

Still, the place does good food and has a great atmosphere. Get in early if you want a good seat!

Disappointing third visit. Ordered fettuccine with crab to only get surimi. Surely that can’t be right!

The prices are outrageous. The cost of the meals have gone up and also the portion sizes have gone down, this is becoming a recurring theme with restaurants in this area at the moment.times are tough for all of us, but there is a limit.we took family here from oz and they were astounded at the prices.daylight robbery.

Deep Creek Brewing Co offers best beer, meat platters. Their BBQ rib is arguably best in Auckland.
Every time, I take my friends, clients & football teams to this restaurant they are impressed with the food and great service :) it’s my favourite restaurant/pub in Auckland.
Not only that it brews its own beers, ales & cider what more do you want ?
Oh yes great location on the beach at Browns Bay with band entertainment on the weekends etc.
Cheers guys we love it & the kids, keep up the good work,
PS don’t mind the slight price increase as the food is good & service too.

Same as below

Really really disappointed that the prices of the meat/seafood paddles have jumped (some up to $9 more) and the size has decreased pretty much by half. When we asked why they are so much smaller we were told because it was because they now have more meat (plate is smaller but you get more meat??? how??), which is really hard to believe…..more expensive meat maybe.

Whats even more disappointing is that the website still has the old prices on it….

The food is still amazing….but either put the prices up OR reduce the size of the meals….don’t do both….

Disappointing …

.they have put the price up of the platter my husband and I normally have by 20 per cent and reduced the size of meals. This has only happened in the last 3 weeks so it will be interesting to see the response from other diners.

The old price is still advertised on their website
The food and presentation is still good .

Deep Creek Brewing Co offers best beer, meat platter $37.90 (comes with lamb legs, bbq ribs in delicious sauce, grilled sausages and confit crispy potatoes and vege) is big enough to share for two. it’s perfectly cooked, I loved every meats and potato n vege. Their BBQ rib is arguably best in Auckland (Manly American restaurant BBQ rib wasn’t good as here).

Everytime, I take my friends, they were impressed with food and great service :) it’s my favourite restaurant in Auckland.

My favorite pub in Auckland.

The beer here is excellent and often cheaper than commercial stuff found at chain pubs. Bar staff are knowledgeable and friendly. The atmosphere and venue are superb, especially on a bright summer day.

The food is awesome and complements the beer well. The ribs have to be tried, they’re fantastic. I can recommend all of the platters though, all generous and delicious.

Best thing to happen in Browns Bay.
Deep Creek is a cottage brewery that has great beer and a good selection of eats that are always well cooked, fresh ingredients and well presented. There is no better way of spending a late afternoon with a view of the sea, in a venue with style , drinking a local brewed beer and nibbles from the menu. Staff always make you feel very welcome and the Deep Creek really go out of their way to offer a quality social experience, More Ponsonby than the Browns Bay of old. Well done and long may it last.

Everything falls off the menu! Last 2 visits to this restaurant had the same issue – items on the menu were not available. First time it was their famous ribs and second time was their seafood. Problem would be solved if they had an efficient management team who could ensure that
all items on the menu were available.

Worst dining experience ever. The manager was one of the rudest managers in hospitality. We were there with our family he came over and said if our children did not behave we needed to leave. Was the table next to ours not our children who were quietly on their iPads. My husband explained this, he did not care.
My husband and I own a large manufacturing business and we were thinking of supporting a local business by booking an a event for 40 of our staff. But this manager/owner (had some sort of accent) was incredibly rude.
Funny thing is Browns Bay is a very small area and businesses need to be aware that people talk (as I have to our business contacts) and the last thing I said to him as we left was “I hope you know what you are doing, alienating your local clientele is not wise”. Food was average.
Will never go back.

I was so happy to get told about this place!

A friend’s friend on Xmas Day mentioned it had the “best ribs in Auckland” – so we naturally had to test it out (love ribs) and oh yes! He wasn’t lying. Best.Ribs.Ever!

I had the Surf n Turf Paddle. What a cool idea btw – I enjoyed my meal being served like that. From memory it’s about $28, and there’s a lot that comes on it. The calamari was tasty and crisp, the prawns (YUM) were almost the highlight – until I had the ribs. I don’t know what you put in the sauce but it’s amazing. Meat was tender and I was genuinely surprised at how meaty they were (not fatty with grissle like other ribs).

Only disappointment to an awesome experience (waiting staff are lovely and the atmosphere is fun) was there were no Growlers in stock :-( But we’ll be back again to buy one, it’s definitely worth the 30min drive!

Thanks Deep Creek – great food, nice place, AMAZING RIBS.

Have been regulars at this place for over six months now and never once been disappointed :). The food and beers are sublime, the staff ‘made for the job’. They will go out of their way to provide excellent service and always remain professional even when the place is packed out. There is nothing left to say except just go and experience it!!

came here a few weeks back for a after work snack. Really good atmosphere, i ordered the mussel pot and the mussels were fresh and cooked perfectly (not chewy at all). The only draw back was that the place was packed and we struggled to find a seat :P

We aren’t drinkers, so this review is solely based on the ambiance and food. I love the way this bar opens up in back to a deck right at the edge of the beach with a great ocean view. If I was going to go hang out with friends in the summer and have some drinks, I can’t think of a better place to do it.. but alas that’s not my scene. We went here to try the food, and OMG we’ve been plotting how soon we can return to indulge in the ribs again… they were finger licking, melt in your mouth amazing. I know it’s not really fair to try one thing and give a 5 star review, but too bad :p Our server was a complete doll as well, and made it an even more enjoyable experience. We’ll be back for the ribs, afraid we like them to much to bother ordering much else LOL

Great atmosphere, great place, marvellous service.. the ribs are to die for and the portions were huge. I felt a little bit bad as I dont really drink beer and couldn’t partake of the ‘full’ experience. But honestly, trust me on the ribs.

We’ve just been to Deep Creek using a deal voucher and it was excellent.

We rang up to confirm on the day and we were told it was Oktoberfest day (13 Oct) and we were warned that it was going to be very busy and that it would be best to be early (really nice to be informed).

We went along anyway and it was great – excellent atmosphere, friendly & helpful staff, fantastic beer and awesome food.

Can’t rate it highly enough – well done Deep Creek, thanks!!

Have been told the food is good, haven’t eaten here yet just tried the beer. Recommend the Leprechaun’s Belle and the cider is the best I’ve found in NZ! Went on a Monday night and it was lovely and quite – I would assume it gets pretty busy with a game on. Nice to find decent beer at last

We went for lunch not long after it was reopened. Maybe bad choices but my meal awful, daughter’s passable and husband’s steak just ok. Ordered a side dish of fries but was not told there would be enough to feed all four of us as a main! Very off putting. I think the waitress should have mentioned that. Won’t go for meal again, maybe just drink and bowl of fries! Would love to see more reviews. Atmospherically it looks better now than when we went.

Last night was my 2nd visit. Their food was great on both occasions, except for my Angus Steak last night. I requested medium-rare and got med-well and burned on the outside, which left it tasting bitter. The waiter was also very confused, our plates were put on 3 different tables before it got to us – not good.

Especially enjoyed the mixed grill. Very disappointed to be turned away by the bouncer at the door when we returned for about the 7th visit. My partner was told he could not enter; he wore a shirt with collar, long denim shorts and jandals. The time was approx 6.30pm. Seems ridiculous as it was a blazing hot day with the beach across the road, Will have to visit elsewhere in future

This place is O for Awesome! Living in the area most my life we were definately in NEED of a bar like this. Fantastic staff, amazing beers, great wine list, and the food is top notch every time. Had the surf’n'turf the other night and I was more than impressed. Can’t wait to be chilling out in the garden bar for most of the upcoming summer.
Great work Deep Creek Team!

Great place with awesome atmosphere. Will be even better once the outside bar is completed in the near future.

I had the whiskey-cooked ribs which were incredible, with the Kumara fries. True KIWI pub kai! Heading back for lunch today!

Beers are well made with interesting styles and varieties available to try. Few selections were sold out when we went due to popularity so hoping to try those today.

Too loud. The guys enjoyed the beers, the staff knew their stuff and we were made to feel like we were extra special. Food was fantastic, with the exeption of the bleu steak…..it was medium rare which made it tough and tasteless. BUT…we will return. Good luck with the venture.

Great brews and good food. We had a great afternoon in the sun out the back of this place. They were out of one of the beers but there were plenty of other tasty drops to sample. I’ll be back next sunday for round two.

First visited this bar a couple of weeks ago and was very impressed. The cheese board is so yummy and the atmosphere was awesome.
Have returned twice since both in late afternoon and the two musicians singing were so loud we could not hear ourselves think!! This would have been great later in the evening or even just not so loud. The musicians had a break and the replacement music put on was just as loud! Not a place I would go to for a catch up drink with friends unless you want to shout your way over the table. We love music and the musicians were talented just way too loud for the size of the venue unless you could escape outside.
