Walter Peak Earnslaw BBQ Ttrip

Triple and quadruple the stars.This trip was so amazing we've told everyone about it-and it's in our own back yard. We can't stop raving. That BBQ is a delicious buffet of top quality foods, freshly cooked and beautifully presented.

Best food in town.

One of the best experience i had in Queenstown. From a hundred years old steam boat to best barbecue food in town. The crew and staff were pretty amazing too. ????

A ok afternoon

This was an ok experience for us. Very expensive and very rushed. Not long enough to eat and watch the show. Also nothing was explained so we had no idea that the show had started or where it was. The food was nice. Good staff. Not enough seats for everyone on the ship. I do feel it’s way overpriced at 388 for a family of four. An ok afternoon. Wouldn’t go again.
