Hungry for a humble hamburger? Well Grill’d have you covered with a plethora of popular options including a healthy take on the classic BLAT burger and their ‘HFC’ (Healthy Fried Chicken) varieties.

If sipping something sweet is more your style, why not swing by Surfers Paradise Beer Garden for a cocktail or two. Cheers!
