Dropped in around 2ish for lunch. Kitchen was still open. Food was great, service brilliant. Great pub food for a couple of country broards
Nick Goodner
Great place to stop for drinks and to play some pool. Good location and easy to get to if you are in the area.
Jimmith Thyroid
Had a great time here for a couple of drinks.
Had some awesome food options too. Wasn't badly priced either, so was enjoyable all round.
Will be back here too

I came with my partner to play at the pokies. When we arrived with our drinks, a rude old Chinese lady approached and demanded that we leave the area if we didn't play. She didn't even wait 30 seconds and instantly tried to kick us out. Never come back. Poor management and emotional intelligence on behalf of the staff.

Great place to eat good food and watch the people walk by

This is a very mediocre pub just near Railway Square. Food is suboptimal, so I wouldn't consider eating elsewhere as you have so many options and Spice Alley is just around the corner. Tap beer is limited in variety unless you like all the commercial brands. Has a gambling room which you need to venture through on the way to the ladies toilets. Now they are an experience. Not the worst but certainly not the best. Nice seats at the window to people watch and a pool table if you like to play. Still figuring out how it's still operating ???"

I recently visited Bar Broadway, hoping to have a pleasant evening, but unfortunately, my experience left much to be desired. The bar, particularly the manager of the pokies area, displayed a level of rudeness and made me feel incredibly alienated throughout my visit.

From the moment I entered, I sensed an unwelcoming atmosphere. The manager, in charge of the pokies area, seemed disinterested in providing any form of customer service. Their demeanour was dismissive and unfriendly, leaving me feeling like an inconvenience rather than a valued patron.

What struck me the most was the manager's blatant disregard for basic courtesy and respect. Their condescending attitude was palpable, and it seemed as though they had no understanding of proper customer relations. It's disheartening to encounter such behaviour, especially when visiting a place where customers should feel comfortable and valued.

Furthermore, the overall ambiance of Bar Broadway was lacklustre. The atmosphere felt stale and uninspiring, with little effort put into creating an enjoyable environment for guests. Combined with the unpleasant encounter with the manager, it became clear that this establishment fails to prioritize customer satisfaction.

Given my experience, I cannot recommend Bar Broadway to anyone seeking a welcoming and enjoyable night out. The unprofessional behaviour of the manager in the pokies area, along with the overall unwelcoming atmosphere, made me feel alienated and unimportant. It is truly disappointing to encounter such a lack of hospitality and customer service in a supposed establishment of leisure.

I hope that the management of Bar Broadway takes this feedback constructively and works towards improving their customer relations and overall ambiance. Until significant changes are made, I would strongly advise potential patrons to consider alternative options for a more positive and inclusive experience.

Also, someone left a poo on the toilet?

Bar manager with glasses kicked us out literally for no reason at all. Then gave us a hard time when we asked for refund on the food we'd already paid for but hadn't come out yet. Unbelievable. Getting kicked out of this joint of all places. Been coming here all my life and never had a problem.

I've just been charged $17 dollars for a pint of stone and wood. I think thats outrageous. I've been here many times in the past, have always had a great time. Since the new owners have come in, everything has changed drastically including the prices. $17 for a pint of stone and wood is a joke.

Wonderful place if you wanna try how a steak might taste like after putting in the fridge for over half a year??
Jaycey Park
Amazing Thai chilli basil fried rice! I was skeptical as it's Thai food in a bar, everything from portion, price, and taste was amazing! Very tasty. Friendly and quick service.
The bar itsself is chill as well.
Bar Broadway used to be a cool rock dive bar. But since the new owners took charge in October '22 it has taken a dive downhill.

Standout issues are:
- They have amped up the lighting massively. Which normally is a problem for a pub that is open till daylight, but especially for one that the windows are effectively the walls. From the outside looking in there is no privacy for the patrons and they basically look like exhibits.

- Drink prices have taken a massive hike up.

- Appears to a be a new DJ who plays music that only he and his girlfriend enjoys: read the room no one likes it.

- They cant decide on a consistent theme: night club, pub or rock dive bar? They keep some of the memorabilia from their successful dive bar days, yet amp up the lights but also employ a DJ....what are you going for here?

There are going to be changes or this place will be up for sale again.

They get 2 stars due to the friendly staff..

I used to always enjoy having the chicken schnitzel for lunch. Was a bit hit and miss at times my most recent visit was a positive hit. For those who like a good schnitzel and work near Central this is a good place to go.

This is a pub that is open late. It is a compelling reason to go there when Sydney nightlife is a bit quiet. Unfortunately due to arbitrary reasons, gambling!. It does not want people to enjoy a pint when they are celebrating a conclusion. The bouncer was objectively nasty. These places are casinos, I doubt they could otherwise explain their lack of judgment. It pisses in our image as a city.

If you spend $16 on food here you get disappointment with a side of devastation. The chicken burger was mystery meat pattie and the calamari was chewier than a nuns fanny. The deep fryer must have been running on matchsticks because they were softer than when you take one for the boys and you get stuck with the fat one. To be honest that would probably be a better experience.
At least the drinks were cold.

Clean and spacious good covid safety standards and they make a nice cocktail 🍹

A great bar close to the central station as far as price of the combo meals is concerned. The Thai food though was a bit oily than normal but loved the visit overall.

The meat is not freash enough. Smells bad. Taste like rubber. Fat is not trimmed. The bar guy is very friendly, and the ice water he made is better much than my steak.

I made numerous calls to the restaurant, 10 minutes after the expected delivery time to check the eta for the delivery. The restaurant did not answer any of the 5 calls. At this point i have been waiting from 8:30-9:20pm for the delivery. 10pm arrives and at this point im completely over it and decide to call the quits and go to sleep after making food from home. I wake up at 11pm to missed calls from the driver at 10:20pm. That is 1 hour after expected delivery time! I think i should of been advised that the food was running 1 hour late? I was staying at a hotel, they could of left it in the lobby with my room number that i had left on the delivery address? Multiple avenues could of been taken, yet none were. Not only did i not get to enjoy the food even if it was cold, because the drive took the food home with him, i cant even get a refund. Thanks for a wasting my sunday night.

This pub has a few things going for it. Just at the start of Broadway (Central Station end), has a good mix of clientele, so you'll fit right in no matter what. It gets construction workers, Uni & Tafe students and locals plus some backpackers too.
It only has the One main bar area, with seating and couple of pool tables. Serve all main types of beer and spirits, But also give students a discount.
There is also an Asian flavoured restaurant, but you order at the bar and eat in as the bar. Typical pub eating.
They sometimes have live music and if not, the background music is really good.
In the area out back of the main bar is the Poker Machine area. The room has 2 levels, with the top glassed in area is also the smoking area inside the pub. They also have an ATM in a a side door/hallway near the female toilets.
Lastly and one really good thing about the pub is that it is just a few meters outside Sydney's lockout laws, so can come anytime you want such as 3am, unlike the hotels inside the lockout area where you cant enter after 1am.
So all in all, I would recommend this place as the staff and usually the customers as well.
