Really enjoyed my first experience at Pistol Pete's Food & Blues, great food, loved the chicken and value for money. I will definitely be going back again.
Great food. Great blues. Great night. Will be back for more. Travis Bowlin was sensational. And the moonshine hit the spot. Thanks for a night to remember.
The Staff are very friendly and helpful. There was great food, great atmosphere. My experience all around was amazing, defiantly would recommend again to friends and family.
Great night of good food, great music and lovely staff, who were very attentive and polite as always. Always a fun place to go with a group of friends.
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.
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.
Was a great experience from the time I walked in the door. I was greeted from the friendly staff and shown my table immediately. I ordered drinks and my meal which was promptly served. The pulled pork and cajun chicken was beautiful. They have a good selection of craft beers. The blues music was good and the venue has a great vibe about it. I will be back for sure.
This Quirky trendy laid back bar lends itself to a great night out.I went out with some friends and sat at the window table and as a group of friends walked passed we invited them in to join us for a night of amazing Blues by Wayne Jury...This bar has a relaxed vibe and the cozy atmosphere makes you feel like your at a party with great friends...Well done Pete...
