Manly Wharf Hotel
Enjoy a pint on the water's edge in this old and faithful Manly pub.
Known as "the Wharf Bar" to locals, Manly Wharf Hotel provides tasty pub fare right on the water's edge. Watch the waves crash in as you enjoy a long lunch or an evening drink. Plus, there's live music every Tuesday through Thursday and resident DJ sets on the weekends that you won't want to miss.
Food-wise, there's an array of options to sample, from a chili garlic prawn pizza ($25) and a snapper katsu burger ($20) to veal parmas ($29) and beer battered fish and chips ($24). There are also seasonal menus that showcase the freshest sea-to-plate produce.
When it comes to wines, the Wharf Bar offers a mainly regional assortment in support of New Zealand and Australia vineyard powerhouses. It also offers signature cocktails that compliment the beachside vibes, like watermelon and mint martinis ($17) and summer garden mojitos ($18).
