Meals were tasty, and steak was cooked to perfection. Staff were friendly and attentive. It was a cold day outside, so the fireplace was welcoming on arrival. Bistro is available all day, and place has just been refurbished. Recommended

Have eaten in the Bistro last four weeks on Monday and Thursday since we moved into the area. Monday special Chicken Schnitzel and a Schooner. Very consistent quality and tasty for $14. Thursday is Surf and Turf for $15. Steak cooked to my liking with a hard char and three prawns on top. Very, very tasty with chips and salad.
Bar staff are very friendly and prices are very affordable.
Give it a go.

Irish curry Schnitzel is an elite option for every pub menu. The bistro operator is a humble bloke doing great food and I went mid arvo so in sure it can get rowdy at times but the venue was very family friendly while I was there

Came across this place while passing by and decided to stop for dinner. They mustve had a live band concert by the bar so vibes were lively. Bar staff friendly. Bistro staff were also friendly, food was better than expected as we didnt really know what we were in for, the meat on the lamb shank was cooked very well and came right off and the prawn pasta was so good for the price with a generous serving size as well. Would like to come by for the schnitzel others are talking about next time I pass by the area.

Passing through and very glad we stopped here. Great service, great food. Had the Parmi and Guinness pie. Big servings, tasty and fresh. Thanks to George and Noel for having a chat and offering us some advice for our camping trip! We'll be back.

I get the impression the owner must've put a lot of effort involving community into this place, one of the few venues that support live music and allows bands. Tonight (11th June 2023) some folks put up an art installation which wasn't my taste but that's okay- it's nice to see someone allowing the community to have a go in these difficult times.

With loads of historical pictures and artifacts on the walls, there's an easygoing ambience of yesteryear. Whether or not they put on the log fire during winter or they have the aircon cooling everyone in summer, it seems they're very focused on patron comfort and it seems to be working as the patrons range in age from the young all the way up to silver foxes and in between.

I go here mostly for poker, it's one of the friendlier games in the Illawarra no matter which day or night i play, and the bistro must've changed management since most of the other reviews as the chicken schnitzel i received was fantastic taste and value, and i hear other players raving about the schnitzels and pies a LOT.

Shoutout to the bartender's, they're kind and every so-often will ask if everyone's okay just to check if you're happy and well, or if they can help with anything. There's also special protocols in place for women who may be needing extra help.

Someone commented that the floors are sticky. Absolute rubbish! The place is clean. It's not modern, this place has gone for an atmosphere of "historic character", but it's NOT dirty.

I've been here alone during the day and at night It's always buzzing along nicely. It's not your modern trendy venue where the beers are yuppy priced, this place is down to earth and fair dinkum. Put ego aside and have a great time ?

Good old-fashioned pub at the slightly less salubrious end of the Gong.
If you don't mind your feet sticking to the floor and want a good place for a reasonably priced drink and an honest pub meal, check it out.
Staff are very friendly and they quite often have great music gigs.
Worth checking it out.

One of Wollongong's oldest pubs complete with sticky floorboards just so you know it's a real pub.
Staff are genuinely lovely and the food is good traditional pub fare. Doubt it could be called a gourmet experience, but if you want a good honest pub meal, this is a good place for it and it's well priced.
Great selection of beers and wines and an owner who knows his customers.
Conveniently located within a few hundred metres of Wollongong railway station, pick your time to travel as this isn't the trendiest side of Wollongong, but it is lit well enough with ample street parking close by.

We had a great St Patrick's Day at Diceys, good food, drinks, music, and a great atmosphere. Parking is not the best, but well worth it..

I really loved this pub!
It had pool tables and pinball machines, table tennis, darts and the dreaded pokies for those fond of a poke.
I had so much fun! It's got loads of character, great atmosphere, friendly staff and it's right next to the train station.??'?
Can't wait to go there again!

Roll the dice, Bryce and don't you come back, no more.
I got wine here, had a few actually. I also learnt how to DJ, here which was fun, I got on the deck and ripped it pretty hard for the crowd of people there, while I was wearing a sack. I saw someone win a 20 dollars on the pokies while I was there, that was pretty neat. I also talked to my partner on the phone out in the back smoking area for a while, and everyone now and then someone that I knew would walk past and then see me on the phone and we would exchange little nods to each other.

We had Melbourne Cup Lunch and the service & food was superb. The hotel provided a musician to top it off, he was great!

Never been to a pub that doesn't do schnitzel before but hey I'll give it a chance! Food was served in cardboard, pretty average at best. Mash was cold and not creamy, pie and pasta seemed microwaved which seems highly likely given the big sign at the counter that says "NO MENU CHANGES HOWEVER CAN REMOVE ITEMS", red flags... Seems like a great place for a beer but wouldn't eat here.

$18 pasta served in a plastic Chinese soup container with a plastic fork. Absolutely flavourless and taste like it's been microwaved maybe, such basic flavours. What a joke, don't waste your money.

Our first trip to Wollongong and had a great time on both days at Dicey Riley's. Cold beer and a few games of darts. Friendly and helpful staff and a shout out to Cameron who looked after us on both visits

Good food. Poker is run well. Apparently the bouncers are a little over the top.

Great for watching the footy during winter, good tab n they give local bands an opportunity to show their wares as well as putting on decent cover bands.

Very good prices, food excellent and good value for money. The music was good the night I was there.One thing, they have renovated. What used to be the Men's toilets is now the women's. Apparently I'm not the only one to do that, or the woman I walked into thinks I identify as a woman. These days you have to be careful.
