We were seated and served promptly at this airport brewery in the Jo’burg airport. We had several draft beers, all of which were good. Our burgers were good, if a little overcooked; they were well-seasoned, anyway. The fries were also good. Nothing remarkable here, but...if you like a burger and a draft, this might be a good spot for you.More

Good beer flight that includes a seasonal brewers choice, and decent food for an airport. The service was good and the atmosphere is relaxed. I liked their Weizen the best.

Absolutely enjoyed this wonderful restaurant at Johannesburg airport. The food was great as were the drinks! This place specializes in local beers. My husband and I loved the grilled calamari for an appetizer and the grilled fish and french fries for dinner. Our waiter, Joseph,...was attentive and wonderful to engage with. Absolutely recommend this restaurant!More

Excellently prepared, fresh, beer-battered hake!!! Love the craft beer as well as the extended wine list - all wines suited to dishes. Service, atmosphere and all else are top notch!

I always use this spot when I have to wait for my flights and I have never been disappointed with the service. In May me and my family we were travelling to France but my partner had to do some work and I had to...take care of our toddler. Our waitress, Martha, was helping her tear up documents to throw away, as well as helping my chasing the toddler around. The manager (Moses) also came to check on us regularly. We did the same on the way back and the manager remembered us and came to check how we were. I would recommend this spot.More

This was our first greeting upon arrival from the USA to S. Africa and it was so wonderful! We ate at the Airport Craft Brewers at OR Tambo Airport where the staff was extremely friendly, welcoming and kind. Our server, Qaphelani (22) was particularly kind...and very committed to making our experience a pleasant one. He's an outstanding server and we will ask for him on our return layover. Our breakfasts were outstanding, very reasonably priced, and the latte was sooo delicious!! Looking forward to our next great meal and latte!!! Thanks for the outstanding service Qaphelani!More

Table was dirty, food was cold, gave to us plastic cutlery for ribs. At in the end, they pushed us pay to 10% of the order on top, supposedly for a tip. No recommending ever!!!

What a pleasant surprise! The beers are superb, we tried an amber ale and porter. Delicious! Ate the Caprese haloumi, basil pesto was incredibly tasty and well made. Great service and ambience. Wish they were closer to home.
