We took our son for his 17th Birthday here. Although skeptical regarding Vegan food, apart form chicken wings, chips, sweet potatoes and onion rings, to his credit he tried the captain jack both in vegan and meat varieties. Though he said the meat version won, he really liked the vegan one, as he did with all the sides we got, as did all 4 of us. Really fantastic food and service. A really cosy place to come to. Strongly recommend.

Straight up the best burger I've ever had, AND IT’S VEGAN!
Chips and onion rings are on another level as well, best restaurant in Manly.

Love the way First Table deals encourage you to try new places. Glad I tried this one. Like the ambience & atmosphere of the bar. Being early, it was quiet but I imagine it hits up as the night progresses. Food was really tasty - burgers & tapas. Many options with the burger selection as well as plant based variations of each.

Firstly, the Hold is a perfect Winter option with its dark and cosy interiors. It’s pirate themed decor is not cheesy as one might expect of such a theme and they carry it off well, adding interest to the atmosphere. Staff are always super friendly and we’re again on this occasion. Always on hand and great to interact with.
I’m not a burger kind of person but having seen the burgers the week prior whilst there purely for their fabulous margaritas; I made a commitment to return to try them as they looked so good. And great they were. I tried two different ones with my friends help and we even ordered a third, taking advantage of the half price food but also because it went down so well.
My only suggestion is that they use brioche buns as they melt in your mouth more than the standard yet still nicely soft buns they used.
I’m a local. I’ll be back for repeat experiences and I’m a fan of their generous happy hours which include far better than decent cocktails and real options that leave you feeling lucky to have found the place.
Don’t base your visit purely on a first table opportunity as their prices are very reasonable anyway.

The Hold is an absolute favourite for us. First time we went with a bigger group and now last time just us two we came back, as we had an amazing experience the first time.
Staff was friendly and considerate. Service was quick and food was delicious. Recommend the onions rings for a starter! We will definitely come back!

Great food and warm, friendly service. Four of us dined at the hold and we left with full bellies. Four burgers and four shared sides which were absolutely delicious. If you like some heat then go for a double Korean fried chicken burger. Thick fries, sweet potato wedges, chicken wings and mac and cheese were absolutely delicious to share between us. Thoroughly recommend!!

Not my first time at the Hold and definitely won’t be the last. Their unique range of Vegan and non vegan food is sure to suit all dietary requirements. I always feel included when I eat one of their delicious burgers and they never disappoint! I urge anyone to try their reasonably priced selection of food only footsteps away from Manly beach!

Wanted to go to a favourite place for my birthday in where everyone's diet requirements could be met. Keen to taste the new additions to the vegan menu also.

Well, We couldn't fault anything as the serves are generous and everything was so tasty and we had 9 different things off the menu- both vegan and meat.

Waitresses were smiling and very efficient in promptly replacing the water jug every time we emptied it, and for getting our orders correct, especially for the mains as all 4 of us had specific choices.

The Hold is a really great place to visit for any occasion, even if its for a catch-up to just have a few drinks. We noticed that there were specials for Tuesdays and Wednesdays for certain drinks which my wife took advantage of.

A STRONG recommend!

A big thanks to The Hold for a great night out! We loved the sweet potato fries, meatballs, beer battered fries and of course, our burgers! We tried a pineapple one, captain jack, chicken, and the blue cheese burger in vegan version just for something different. All DELICIOUS! The vegan burger was particularly good - I was impressed with the flavor and texture of the patty and cheese - couldn't tell it wasn't the real deal! Good service, good value jugs of beer, so all round a top night - we'll be back!
