Sounds on West
Our boston butts are dry rubbed, cooked whole and pulled to order
Beef Short Rib
Smoked BBQ beef ribs are a thing of beauty. A crust of dark bark, a vivid scarlet smoked ring & beefy strands of tender rib meat
Mac & Cheese
Gruyere, parmesan & cheddar with truffle oil and toasted breadcrumbs
Great addition to Umina. Smoked brisket and pulked pork were delicious. Will definitely return.
Food was fabulous. Service was unnecessarily slow. We would have ordered more drinks and dessert but weren't asked - instead, the front of house staff were all having a chat behind the bar. A bit disappointing especially since there were so few people in the restaurant.
Great cocktails, and desserts.
Lacking on the mood with no live music. Feel they should have some regular beers available for those not enjoying craft beers. Meat needed seasoning. Not bad by any means just some improvements to be made.
Service attentive and timely, table wasn't ready but only took a minute or two to get there. Staff lovely.
Overall the food came out piping hot, well presented and flavorsome.
Mac and cheese needs looking at as this was the only disappointment of the evening.
It was colourless, tasteless, flavourless and insipid...sorry to say but I think that they forgot all about the cheese and left it on the kitchen bench.
We went for special dinner, the service was incredible fast. They did everything to make our experience memorable one. We ordered cocktails for the adults and they made a super special one for our little daughter, she totally loved it and felt super special.
Amazing staff, beautiful food, quick service, nice location
The main was I was disappointed there were no gluten-free options for dessert.
Lovely place, we come back often and everyone's always thrilled with the food and service.
Thank you, Glad you enjoyed it :)
Maybe padded seats they are like ice . A few more kids choice apart from 2 items but a great alduld feed
Hi! Thanks for the feedback, much appreciated :)
The menu didn’t have a lot to chose from but we managed to order two starters and a main to share.
The food was really nice. Lots of flavour and really enjoyable.
The cocktails were yum... although they took a little while to come out.
The staff were very friendly but service was a little slow and no one came back to ask if we wanted more drinks. We eventually just went to the bar and ordered which wasn’t a big deal but we would of had more to drink if they were offered earlier.
Over all it was a nice evening out.
Hi Sara, thanks very much for the feedback! It helps us to know where we can improve. I'm glad you had a nice night :)
I have been to Sounds on Westa couple of times. This place doesn't disappoint. Nice food and good service.
Although we had a late lunch time slot there were items Several items unavailable . The service was excruciatingly slow .. despite very few patrons ..
When the food did arrive the meat was cold and the side dish arrived well after the main .
The Kentucky burger was the stand out dish which was hot and tasty .
We are locals and have been here several times previously .. this experience was disappointing.
The waitresses did there best but seemed out of their depth and certainly not attentive to the diners , the availability of menu items , or correct serving or mixing of drinks ..
we will certainly rethink a future visit based on this experience .
Great tasty food.Generous servings and a reasonable price.Friendly staff and warm environment.
Awesome food and service! I had the short rib...... YUMMMMMM
So glad you enjoyed it :D Hope to see you again!
Fantastic service, attentive but not too much. Food was delicious and serving sizes were very generous. Lovely place we will be back to definitely.
Love this place!
Great staff & great food. Looked after our staff for a staff lunch! Will be back again!
Loved it! Highly recommend. We got the $80 shared plate with the pulled pork and beef ribs, parmasen fries and greens as the sides. Great service and such a cool vibe
Great food would be even better if they had coffee with dessert
Have been to sounds on west 3 times now, after the main is served we never see any staff member approach us to ask if we would like desert we have always sat at the far end in a 2 person setting and yes we would have had desert
seats very uncomfortable, felt like in very low class restaurant. the pork belly could not eat too fatty really awful. Brisket not much better. I have been to several other smoke houses . Must say i would not go back to Sounds on West very disappointing. We live at Erina , and travelled to Umina . DRove past smpke house at Erina wont do that again . over all very poor experience . The wedges where the hihlight of the meal . That and leaving the awful seats .
Never fails to impress, perfectly smoked meats, great drink selection and live music. What more could you ask for?
Thanks for the great review Josh! Glad you liked it, and hope to see you back here soon :)
Great place, great service, loved the solo guitarist/vocalist.
So glad you enjoyed you visit :)
Everything was amazing from the moment we arrived, until the moment we left.
Thank you for amazing food & customer service!
You will want to return again and again after you visit Sounds on West. The smell of the smoker in the air and the smoked meats are mouthwatering. The cocktails and drink selection is spectacular and the ambiance is chilled. Love it and cant wait for the next visit.
We absolutely love Sounds on West. Delicious food, great service and great vibe. Love the live music too!
Outstanding food great atmosphere good service great music and close to home
Delicious brisket and beef ribs, even the side slaw was yum too. Generous serving of the mac and cheese! Service was a little awkward and slow - maybe some new processes needed. In saying that we are quite relaxed and patient so things that may bother others doesn't really bother us. Overall would definitely come back again if we were in the area!
We made a reservation for 6.30pm. We arrived at 6.20pm. The restaurant was near empty. We were seated at a table right in front of the front door on a windy evening. We asked if we could move to one of the many vacant tables away from the front door. We were told this was not possible. We did not enjoy our meal. Half a dozen tables remained vacant when we left. It’s a shame because we live in the area and are repeat customers. We were not happy with our experience last Friday (as we’re a number of other patrons) and won’t be quick to return. Disappointing..,
Great outdoor area for kids. Food was yum. Kids food was a little too fancy for my kids (boring) palate but they loved the playing area so all was good!
The venue and service were excellent. Very attentive. They had live music which added to the great atmosphere. We ate inside but checked out their outdoor eating area and it was very inviting. Drinks were very expensive. The deep fried camembert was a good starter as were the smoked meat beans. For the mains, we ordered the smoked brisket, pork belly and ribs. Brisket and pork belly were dry and disappointing but the ribs were very good. We had a vegatarian in our midst who ordered the gnocchi but found it too oily and not very nice. For dessert, we got house doughnuts, creme caramel and banana split. Doughnuts were abit too doughy for us - yummy on first bite but abit too much afterwards, and the creme caramel and banana split were both okay but nothing to write home about. Glad we tried it out and it was still a good night, but we probably won't go back as it was quite expensive and some of the food was a let down.
We had been to this restraunt before so had an idea of the food and setting. Would very much like to see a potato option with the main.
My partner had maple pulled pork and i had lemon chicken maryland both meals were very good. If order ing beer they use funny shaped glasses but we both tried different beer and again were happy.enjoyed the meal and will return .
Over priced beer and a very small main rib meal for the price.
Spacious venue and good size tables
Great food and good friendly service.
Always a great experience here, the crew are always friendly and the food is amazing!
We are regulars to sounds on West & every time we dine there we walk away satisfied by the meals, staff & the ambience. We enjoy the experience on a Friday or Saturday night we’re on the odd occasion they have a musician playing near the bar which makes the overall mood a lot better!
Great selection on the menu and the food was great. Plenty of choice for all tastes. The live music is a great touch and the performer was exceptional - what a fantastic venue!
Was awesome! Definitely be back, Good was great service was great outdoor area was beautiful
Myself and my partner plan trips to Umina just to eat and drink at this brewery. Delicious fresh food. Wonderful service. There is a lot to love here.
Great atmosphere and wonderful selection of food and drinks. The Cocktails are a must try and best margaritas on the coast!
