  • By far this is my the favourite place in Brisbane and for foodies real paradise. Love the Atmosphere and the Eat Street Market idea. Such nice place to enjoy few hours with your family and friends. There is something for everyone regardless on the age. Music wise...you might not be happy on the night but you may enjoy the next night with a different band and music style. Pity this place is only open on Friday and Saturday as during the week there is nothing else in Brisbane apart from Southbank parklands.
  • Can get crazy here if the weather is great. Parking can be an issue if you go at peak hour. Quieter after 8:00-8:30 or on showery evenings. Enormous range of food options. I would suggest that more than 70% are of a very high to excellent standard. 5 bars. Quite a number of shops. Eclectic T-Shirts, handmade soaps and household goods, and various other interesting vendors. Plenty of seating around. Large grassed area overlooking the river. Scattered deck chairs in this area along with regular seating. Dogs can be taken, however I wouldn't recommend it. They can be a hindrance when it's packed. You will need to carry them, keep that in mind.
  • Great place to spend a Friday or Saturday evening with food and entertainment. Huge range of food options and easy to find something outside of the box. Traffic getting in can be a little tricky at peak times
  • An appalling, revolting experience. Inappropriately overcrowded venue on Saturday night (so crowded I did not feel safe.). The very limited seating consisted of pallets covered in astro-turf and steel covered electrical cable drums jammed in sardine-style into noisy spaces. The only decent band were the funk and blues band playing the Meters covers; but they were continually drowned by the canned disco music blaring from the cake shop nearby. Every time the music was turned up the staff downed tools, danced, waved catatonically to the crowd, and took selfies. I am assuming the entertainers aren't paid as the remainder of the performers would be thrown out of karaoke after one song. Fingernails scratching down a blackboard spring to mind. As for the food, forget it. The rice paper rolls from the Vietnamese "street food" store were horrible; the prawns were pre-processed, frozen and tasteless. The dumplings from the dumpling store were tasteless and hard from too much time in the bain marie and the Cannoli from the cannoli store consisted of a tasteless, heavy filling in a stale shell. The bugs and chips for $14 featured the most microscopic bugs I've ever seen (I'm sure their mummy is still looking for them) and no more than 10 chips. So not only was I faced with a value for money issue but also an ethical dilemma about creating demand for undersized seafood. Eat Street Markets is very expensive for what you get; and what you get are very small serves of poor to average comfort food. The concept is "cosmopolitan and funky", the reality is "banal suburban food court". The queues are long and slow and there's nowhere to wait for your orders (apart from standing in the middle of the surging crowd) and there's nowhere to sit once you get your food. Every possible sitting space was taken and when we finally found a table we saw being vacated; I had to deal with puerile people who saw us sitting down and wanted to argue that "they saw it first". I find it embarrassing that this mess is listed on some websites as a "must do" experience for people visiting Brisbane. Surely Brisbane can do / deserves so much better than this? If you have no food imagination, deep pockets and enjoy being crushed by large crowds and eating while you walk they you may enjoy "Eat Street"; for the rest of us; don't say you weren't warned!! Altogether a particularly heinous experience I will never subject myself to again.
  • Love this market. Great environment, delicous food, good music. Definitely a great place
