Interesting food and blues environment. Good indoor and outdoor set up.Staff friendly and busy. Some live music in the street outside made it quite entertaining.

Great food and service. Always at a great price. Took some out of town friends there to show them Geelong's night life. Everyone had a great time.

We go to Pistol Pete's often. We love the place and are never disappointed. A recent trip to New Orleans confirmed that the food is very authentic - in fact better. Janine

A family of 5 for an early dinner (3 teenagers), it was a very comfortable atmosphere and the menu extensive, staff were lovely, I requested for the music to be turned down as it was a little loud (my husband did not agree!) when there were not too many there, staff obliged which I appreciated. The chicken waffle with candied bacon was quite bland, although the bacon was handed around and disappeared quickly. The mojo burger with a huge pickle on top was the best option and the voodoo sauce living up to the expectation of heat. The Chicken BLT was quite good, it was a little bit dry and low in spice, with a bit more mayo or other sauce it could improve. All in all it was a good family outing and I would definitely give other options on the menu a try and will be back with friends in the future. We left before the evening music began so can't comment on that. I also enjoyed the bigger space.

Located within the bustling Little Ryrie/James St entertainment triangle, we found Pistol Pete's to be a very welcome surprise and addition to the Geelong dining scene. Although the restaurant is small, the atmosphere was lively and the food menu broad and interesting. And when the food arrived (very quickly I should add) it didn't disappoint; large portion sizes of very tasty and interesting food combinations. I've never been to or eaten food from the US south before, but after eating at Pistol Pete's I've now added this area and food style to my to do list! Our only regret from the experience was that we couldn't stay on for the live blues music that was scheduled. We will definitely go back again for a later sitting to enjoy what must be a great live blues setting.

Not quite what we were expecting based on reading reviews. While we enjoyed the meal and stayed to listen to some of the evenings musical act, Pistol Pete’s is essentially a cafe where you order and pay at the counter, the food is prepared and delivered quickly and meals seem to be over in less than 30 minutes which made for a long wait for the 9:30 musical act when we booked for 8 pm after reading the booking site which seemed to recommend 90 minute bookings. Oh well, the Jambalaya was a first for us and delicious. The wines by the glass were from the usual wine regions and were ok without being memorable. The 9:30pm act started closer to 9:45 and took first break about 10:15 at which point we departed as we had an early start the next morning.

This was the second time we have visited pistol Pete's. The food, as before, was fantastic and delivered quickly. Three of us had the Gumbo (delicious) whilst our fourth had southern fried chicken, moist and full of flavour. We also shared a Pistol Platter (pulled pork (jummy) battered shrimps, Andouille sausage, chips, fried chicken and coleslaw. Too much food but we ate it just the same as it was too good to waste.

The live music (by Alex Burns Duo) was fantastic! Absolutely made the night for us. Better than any live music I've heard at a restaurant. My partner had the Pistol Platter, which he loved. He said the fried shrimps were very delicious. I had the vegetarian Jambalaya, which was good but not amazing. Wish there were more (than 2) vegetarian options available on the menu, but it's southern American food, so it's understandable that the authentic dishes are meat based. Overall, we had a wonderful experience!
