Can I bring a cake?

Yes, you are more than welcome to bring a cake for your birthday celebration. We have cake plates, spoons and serviettes, making your birthday celebration nice and easy.


Are you pet friendly?

Yes, our outside area is pet friendly, however our outside area is also weather dependant. Please check the weather or call us on (07) 3391 0194 to see if the outside area is open for bookings. If you are calling on a Friday or Saturday night and you have not booked ahead, please call us to see if we have availability.


Can I book the outside area?

Due to our outside area being weather dependant, we only open this area 24-48 hours out from service. If you prefer to have a table outside, please add this to the comments of your booking and we will move your booking outside should the weather allow it and pending availability.


Do you cater for coeliac’s?

Yes we do! It was by chance that our menu catered for coeliacs, as our meats just have salt and pepper and our fries and other sides are all gluten free except the bread roll. Should you be a coeliac or require a gluten free meal, please let us know at the point of ordering so our team in the kitchen can switch their gloves and process your order separately to prevent cross contamination.


If I am coming for lunch Wednesday to Friday, can I order any of the Ribs, Plates or Platters?

Unfortunately our Pork Ribs, Beef Short Ribs, Plates and Platters are not available on our lunch service Wednesday to Friday, however these items are available on Sunday from 12-6pm. On Wednesday to Friday we just operate on our limited lunch menu, which can be found on our menu tab of the website.

How late is your kitchen open until?

How much meat can you fit in Frankenstein?

This is a very common question for us. We worked it out that you could fit in the smoker roughly 70-80 briskets at roughly 8kg’s each. Now whilst we haven’t tested this, we also don’t want to see that meat bill either! HaHa!

For any more Frankenstein or smoking questions, please feel free to always ask us on your next visit and you might even be lucky enough to get a tour of her.
