We visited Jack’s Grill as a family of 6 for a birthday dinner. Our table was ready when we arrived. The staff were friendly and the service was fast. We ordered nachos and loaded fries for entree to share and they arrived quickly... the portions...were huge! Main meals followed soon after... including the steak which was perfectly cooked and super tender. Slow cooked lamb shoulder was also excellent. Great value kids meal which our 9 year old devoured. Bar staff also provided great service. Really reasonable prices. We had been planning to get ice creams on the way home but no one could fit them in. We will definitely be back!More

Lamb and pork belly to die for! Went here for dinner and the service was good, it was the best pork belly we’ve had and my partner had the 12 hr lamb shoulder.

My husband enjoyed his sausage and mash. Don't order the beer battered fish - it's awful. First fish was way too dry - 2nd lot was ok but both lots were all greasy batter and hardly any fish- salad was nice.

This is pub food elevated. They do a bit more, the dining area is off round the back, so it does not feel pubby, and the food offers more choice and a few “fancy” options. Generous portions, friendly staff, tasty food and reasonably priced -...it gets a tick from me.More

Cronin's Hotel has a great bistro; Jack's Grill. The pub has a friendly, open feel. The setting is nothing elaborate, but the service is friendly and the food fresh, well prepared and tasty. The fish, chips, and salad was excellent, tasty fish, perfect batter and...a generous salad serving.More

In spite of our booking being mucked up by us, the friendly staff found us a table. Glad they did as the food was great with many GF options including garlic bread! Great portion sizes with good range of tastes.

Cronin's pub in Gerringong is very lucky to have this very talented team in their kitchen as they put their (Melbourne) stamp on our area. The food is absolutely first class and not the predictable " pub grub" offered elsewhere. . It is inventive, and...inspired. One of our party noted that it was their best fish & chips experience in recent memory. I shared a Winter salad and Arancini which were absolutely scrumptous. This venue is such a welcome addition to South Coast dining and I will heartily reccomend it to all. Cant wait to return for more samples from the very clever and original menu.More

Hi Allan S, Thank you for this feedback, however I think there may have been a miscommunication. I remember the discussion with your wife quite clearly and advised her on the size of the portion being 160g-170g (a fairly standard portion size of fish) and...More

There is very good access as the entry is via a flat area and an outdoor patio area is to the right of the entry. Great parking around the back where the main entry is.
