      Choosing this restaurant was the only mistake I made. We ordered at 5:50pm exatly, I know cause we got there at 5:40pm. My daughters started to cry at 6:30pm. Food was served at 6:40pm, by this time my daughters couldn't eat as they were upset. Half the food was cooked prawns, cooked bugs, cooked crabs and raw oysters so what took so long! I don't mind paying for good food but this was the same quality as the fish and chiip shops! Very expensive for less then ordinary food. Staff was unfriendly and when I told the chef I have to take it away as no one is in the mood to eat anymore he said we can't complain as the food was served within an hour! Outrages. I have never wrote a negative review before but I believe anyone thinking of going here needs to hear my experience as a warning.

      Without a doubt the most exceptional tasting food in Nelson Bay; the staff were friendly and went the extra mile to make the night enjoyable the chef also came out to have a chat with diners. The seafood was fresh and cooked to perfection. We would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting the area. Cheryl and Colleen, July 2011

      Had the pleasure of having Breakfast at Depz over the weekend. We were greeted by the most pleasant waitress possible which turned out to be the Chef and owners daughter Ashlee. My wife and I had the Big breakfast which was served just in time from returning with the paper. We both enjoyed our dining experience and will definately be returning for the evening meal after looking looking through the Dinner Menu. Service was second to none and we even got a chat with the Owner peter. Looking forward to that scrumptious looking seafood platter. Thumbs up Guys That was Awesome!!!!

      Had a birthday lunch here in January 2011 - the food was absolutely sensational. By far the best menu at The Bay. The freshness of the seafood was awesome and the steaks were unbelievable. Presentation was impeccable. We liked the fact that it was BYO, but would not mind if it was licenced. Our only gripe was when we arrived the air con was not on - it was over 36 degrees outside and felt like it was 56 inside! We asked for it to be turned on, they obliged thankfully, otherwise we would have left and went elsewhere. Part of a great dining experience is being comfortable, the proprieters should have the air con on ready for arriving guests. Other than that - best place to eat at The Bay. We will be back and I have told all of my family and friends about this Restaurant.

      One of 3 restaurants we have eaten at in Nelson Bay and definitely the best. No views but you go for the food. The Ocean Perch with the topping and bernaise - beautiful and my partner was over the moon with the rack of lamb. Definitely worth a visit

      Must have been a bad day for the previous review as I have been eating here for the past 17 years and have always thoroughly enjoyed myself. A conversation with Pete (owner ) or just enjoying my favourite beef and reef with great service from Amber or Chris 2 long serving waitpeople on the staff from whom I've never had a negative comment. Nothing is a problem and visiting Celiac friends enjoyed the personal approach to assist them in enjoying their dinner and evening. Keep it up guys.

      This restaurant ruined a pleasant day at out in the Bay. The food was below par, overpriced for what we ordered. The decor is cheap and although the service started out quite good, it quickly deteriorated. After the entree and salad had come and gone we were not checked on for almost an hour. At which point, one waitress made a passive agressive comment that we were lucky to be served as walk in customers. We would have been more satisfied if they had turned us away in the first instance. Understandably the staff were under a lot of pressure over the easter break, however there was no apology and when the food did come it was horrible. I have never had such a small portion of food so poorly done in a restaurant before. It was something to be expected at a foodhall in a shopping centre. Nothing from this restaurant justifies the prices it charged. Without even comparing it with Sydney restaurants, I would say any local suburban restaurant would be better than this. turns out also that this is not the first time that this has happened. Other colleagues visiting the area also mentioned that they received not just below par but disgraceful service. I would suggest you visit here on a quiet night when all other options have been ruled out.

      On recommendation my wife and I went here for our wedding anniversary and enjoyed the meal & service so much we went back the following Sunday for breakfast. The Eggs Benedict was in the same class as the evening meal. We'll be back

      Have ben to Depz on a few occassions and always had a good experience, service and food were both great. It was only $2 corkage per person and there was $2 surcharge per person (which was similar to all the BYO restaurants around the area) as it was a Saturday night, maybe Sean got confused it does state these on the menu I checked for myself. I had the garlic prawns for entree and a seafood cob for main both were excellent. My friend had the oysters then the veal neptune which she really enjoyed. We will definately go back. YUMMY

      My wife and I really enjoyed our Atlantic Salmon plus the Beef & Reef . After reading about the Camembert Bread we decided to start off with it and see how a bread was "hard to eat' . With only the normal amount of fingers we found it a great change from the always presented garlic bread and we chose the trio of icecreams and sorbet to finish with - really refreshing . We will return. Shayne
