About The Paddock & Brew Company

A short stroll from Jubilee Park on lively Wood Street in Mackay is The Paddock & Brew Company, smokehouse restaurant and craft beer bar. An industrial, yet warm interior evokes generosity from the well-stocked bar to the round table designs, which depict full glasses of wine, beer and the cuts of meat on offer. Crowds of locals and politicians alike enjoy American-style 16-24 hour slow-cooked meat, created in a process featuring seasonal and locally sourced ingredients, like apple and stone fruit wood chips for smoking. Everything from the kitchen is housemade, with inventive breads baked using one of 140 beers on offer; tuck into a modern BBQ share plate of smoked lamb rump with sautéed new potatoes, seasonal greens and rosemary jus, while the kids chow down on a Little Paddock burger.

Delicious huge mouth watering American inspired menu
Best Brisket I’ve ever had! Can’t wait to return for more


Great fun place for making memories
Happy fun atmosphere right from the moment we walked in the staff are excellent the drinks are spot on and the food is just what you would expect and big hearty serves of it. Would I recommend this place for a decent feed and night out, bloody oath you won't be disappointed and the pricing is very reasonable as well. Thanks again to the paddock and brew for another fantastic night out. ??????????


Great food, great beer, and a laid back atmosphere!
As a non-meat eater, my friends are always confused when I suggest going to the Paddock and Brew for dinner and drinks. But it is just that good. There are vegetarian options, and the meat eaters are in heaven. The beer is delicious, with so many options. Plus the staff and owners are so friendly and welcoming that it just makes the whole experience fantastic. I highly recommend checking them out - great food, great beer, and a laid back atmosphere!


Customer focus and attention
My experience at the paddock and brew as been always fantastic including looking after customers who sometimes have difficult requests. Food and beverages are always high quality and great taste. Only downfall is the restaurant can be quite noisy and difficult to talk but the option of outside dining improves this.


Amazing service, great staff, tastebud tantalizing food, ice cold craft beer and the best coffee in the city - it really doesn't get any better. Love you guys xx


Best restaurant in Mackay
This is by far the best restaurant in Mackay. You can't get better food, drinks and service!



Vegans nightmare
OMG thank you Dave and crew for the best BBQ smokehouse style establishment possibly in Australia. The Paddock And Brew is simply a meatlovers paradise and simply one establishment everyone Either living in or visiting Mackay should give a go, from the moment you walk through the door, the crew and hosts make you feel like family, and the food that is served here leaves no confusion that they really live their jobs in the kitchen. The cape grim brisket is simply melt in your mouth goodness. As are the ribs. And every meal on the menu is just as good, trust me as I've literally eaten the whole menu and not once have I been disappointed. So that's the Paddock side now for the Brew side. When I first started frequenting Paddock and Brew, I was not a beer fan preferring my whiskey, however there is such a large and ever changing range of craft beers on offer that they have now been able to widen my palate of taste to include quite a few different varieties of these craft beers, I still like my whiskey however when given the task of matching my meal with a beer they are always right on the mark. So do I recommend you give them a try, bloody oath I do and I would be very surprised if you only go once as literally everyone I have recommended to try this establishment have all told me that they have been back numerous times. Excellent job Paddock and Brew, and thanks for the many fantastic fun memorable dining experiences. Troppo Mills. ??????????


Best place for a great meal and awesome beers in Mackay
I cannot get enough of the Paddock and Brew! Even though it's a place that s heavy on the meat they can do an awesome platter to suit Vegetarians and Vegans. Amazing Staff and David and Paaige are fantastic hosts! Do yourself a favour and pop in for a visit :-D


Great spot
Great food great staff great beer selections Great value. Highly reccomend to everyone.



My favourite place in Mackay.
Being a real enthusiast for craft beer, Paddock and Brew attracted my attention as soon as it opened, and hasn't disappointed since. A large, ever-changing selection of local and imported craft brews keeps me very happy every time I visit. Although the brews were the main attraction for me, I soon found that the food is also excellent. You won't leave hungry, as the portions are generous, and the cooking is excellent. Don't expect arty-farty cuisine, just good well-cooked food, although the chef has been producing some pretty inventive dishes lately. I'm not a real food connoisseur - make up your own mind on this. (My own favourite dish has been the Cape Grim smoked beef brisket - excellent.) Food and beverage aside, this place also stands out for the quality of the welcome that you'll receive. The staff, and management are all very friendly, and will learn, and use, your name quickly if you become a regular visitor. If you need advice in choosing a beer that will suit your palate, then that advice is always available. And it's not just beer, as they stock some very good wines and an excellent array of top-shelf spirits. My wife and I visit Paddock and Brew regularly, and will be back there very soon.



The best of the best. Cant get any better than this restraunt. ??????

The Paddock and Brew
Best Meal in QLD this year. The meat on the burger was succulent and really tasty. Great value and worthy of a great review.


We have been to the Paddock several times and it just keeps getting better. We had the most amazing beef spare ribs I have ever tasted in my life, It can not be described how good they are without trying them for yourself. In the 17 odd hours they take to cook, magic happens. The service was great, great range of craft beers, top shelf spirits, some very unusual choices of alcohol-moonshine etc.and a few nice wines and the owner Dave is just so knowledgeable about the all the produce on the plate which is all local and the best quality available. Great night out.
