“Came down with a couple of friends and shared an awesome meal of ribs, brisket, chicken wings and all the American sides you could ask for!! The meat is delicious, tender
and juicy, and topping it all off with a Nutella & PB pie left us fully satisfied!! Will definitely be back!!”

The food here is great!! We enjoyed the loaded fries along side the slow cooked ribs! The meals came out quickly and were delicious. Drinks were well priced to.Staff were friendly

The beef brisket was absolutely amazing and so tender. Smoked mac and cheese with bacon is hugely addictive! Definitely would come back to try the rest of the menu!

Cool place! First time here for dinner and it was a pleasant experience. Had the pulled prok burger which was juicy and flavoursome. Caesar salad was unique and tasty. Service was also efficient on a busy night. We will be back to try more

My experience at the Third Wave was incredible! Burgers and coffee is so good!

facebook-logo September 2 2017

One of the most different, delicious and literally juicy (as the name of the burger says it, I had the Juicy Lucy) I’ve ever had. The Vietnamese coffee (double espresso and condensed milk) milkshake was from heaven! Lovely staff as well. Although is not that close to where I live, I definitely intend to go back there to try their special of the month

September 2 2017

It’s all about the Eggs Benedict and Florentine combo for me… been here several times and just love it. One day I let my coffee get cold and rather than just microwaving as I requested they made me a whole new one – just really good service!

September 2 2017

Fantastic food and service! Ribs were very tender and the chips were well-seasoned. Cornbread was dense and tasty too.

September 2 2017

Fresh and delicious highest quality food. Yummy!

The atmosphere and service are great and the food is amazing! Also if you have a sweet tooth you need to try the pecan pie though I’ve heard the key lime pie is to die

“went there for dinner with one of my mate.ordered slow cooked beef ribs and oh my my my the best beef ribs I ever had..they were so tender and juicy and literally melts in your mouth..its definitely a must visit. the place is usually all booked so prior reservation is recommended”

Great place with great stuff. The burger I had was the special of the month. Can’t find the way to describe this monster with mac and cheese. Definitely I will come back.

August 30 2017

Insanely good food, huge range of options to choose from. Good service. Good price for value.

I booked online for a Thursday night dinner celebration of my wife’s birthday. She had initially stumbled upon Third Wave while looking for an after hours Cafe in Port Melbourne but when we learned that they do American BBQ for dinner we knew we had to try it out. I love BBQ ribs and the beef ribs are by far the best I’ve had in Melbourne.Great sides and entres as well as an extensive craft beer selection round the offer out. Service was courteous and attentive, although a few questions regarding gluten content required a few trips to the kitchen.Great night out and absolutely delicious food. We’ll be back again for more soon.

August 28 2017

I loved the Salted Caramel milkshake, the cheesy mac and the 🧀 🍔 Royale. Service was good.

“My husband and I visited for a late lunch on Friday 25th August and we were not disappointed.
The food was amazing and the wait staff very attentive. We ordered the lamb shoulder and the beef ribs which we shared and we also had a side of spicy chips and coleslaw. The meat in both dishes just melted in our mouths. We will definitely be back real soon. ”

facebook-logo August 28 2017

Loved it, so filling, will be back next week i reckon!!!

facebook-logo August 28 2017

Well what can I say if you love ribs you will love the Third Wave Cafe. The service was great and the meals were fantastic. We have been wanting to visit for a few months now and so glad we finally did. the food was just as we had hoped it would be and although we did not have a burger they looked amazing too. We can’t wait for our next visit which I’m sure will be sooner rather than later.

facebook-logo August 27 2017

Third wave is delicious! The ribs are amazing and the ambience is also good. We went there on a Saturday and it was very busy. Can’t wait to come back!

Fantastic food and atmosphere! Can’t wait to go back for more!

August 25 2017

After seeing so many videos shared on Facebook about the insane burgers, my mates and I finally decided to make the trip to Third Wave a couple of weeks ago to try the Mac Bomb.We were seated very quickly and brought menus, offered drinks promptly and placed our orders; we all had Mac Bombs but we also had some loaded fries and one of us was game enough to have a Bacon Shake as well.Food came out quickly and was delicious, even though it was probably more cheese in one meal than any of us had eaten in months. Some of us couldn’t finish, but we all loved it and have been talking about it since. The loaded fries (with brisket) were so tasty and the night was a big success. We’ll be back!

Real good burgers and just a good all round place to hang out! Would recommend it

“Went here over the weekend and honestly reckon it’s the best food i have had all year.
Not only was the pork ribs spot on but you can taste the smokeyness in the mac and cheese.
Yes it is a bit on the pricey side but you certainly get your ‘value for dollar’ here.
Service was prompt and polite (this was on a Saturday night too with a full house).
Will keep on recommending to all my mates, thanks guys!”

facebook-logo August 22 2017

The best burger I’ve ever had hands down

August 22 2017

Mint place for a feed! Gorgeous size burgers that made for a fantastic Sunday catch up with the fellas. Getting hungry thinking about this joint again. Good value for a hearty feed! Make sure u book in advance as it gets chockers.

“As a burger lover I have explored most of the burger joints around Melbourne trying to find the best. After visiting The Third Wave today im convinced I found it. I had the the mac n cheese burger and was blown away by the taste and quality of that beast.
The loaded fries were great with cheese and briske. Will be coming back soon, this time with an empty stomach!”

Incredible food! If you want delicious American style meat look no further

Food Even tastes amazing on delivery! Definitely ordering from you guys again

facebook-logo August 19 2017

I dined in with a few friends for the all you can eat deal! We were all really excited coming in for this, and the food we had exceeded all expectations. I had the crazy pig milkshake as well, and although I was a bit skeptical at first, the skepticism was put to rest! It was amazing! We loved all 3 courses, and we stuffed ourselves until we couldn’t do more. The waitresses were also kind enough and accommodating to provide us take-away containers to bring home the rest of what we couldn’t finish. For the meat-lovers we are, this was heaven! Thank-you once again! Will be back again for sure!

“Stumbled across the Third Wave Cafe by chance and couldn’t have been happier with the result. The cafe was packed on a Saturday night (always a good sign) and we were hoping for a walk in table.

The friendly waitress informed us they were fully booked but she checked with their manager and ended up squeezing us in at the bar.

For a small venue the menu is supersized with American style food and shakes.

The burgers were next level. Cooked to perfection, well balanced with flavours and tasty condiments, and BIG.

My recommendation? A 3 Little Piggies burger and a 3 Ravens

American Pale Ale to wash it down.

This simple man was very satisfied.

“Went with a couple of mates for lunch. The burgers are massive and taste superb!
The MacBomb burgers are an amazing and unique idea. Don’t know how you came up with the idea but you guys definitely nailed it. Milkshakes were 11/10 as well.
One of the best I’ve ever had. I’ll definitely be coming back to try so different menu items next time �”

facebook-logo August 11 2017

I ordered the Juicy Lucy and it shut me up for a good 20 minutes. Best burger I’ve eaten in a very long time. My boyfriend ordered Oh Mamma and loved it. We will definitely be ordering these bad boys again.

Just had a great brunch with the kids. Very relaxed. Coffee is ok, although you’ll find better on bay st. Pancakes are huge and best shared with the group (we shared between four)

Came for breakfast one morning on a Sunday.Didn’t order anything fancy, just your eggs on toast with some sidesNonetheless it was delicious! Mushrooms especially.Will definitely be back and be a little more adventurous.

facebook-logo Augsut 10 2017

It was our first time here and we ordered the pork ribs, candy bacon, cheesy corn bread and the sweet potato loaded fries. I don’t know where to begin how mouth watering, fall of the born ribs and delicious the food was! It was that good I forgot to take a photo and did a Snapchat vid instead!! On a good note, we’re definitely coming back here!

Great Food. Nice Cosy Ambiance. We had Lamb burger and a lamb shoulder with Russian salad- super delicious! Pancakes are huge and simply ‘Yum’ – Best tasting pancakes we have ever had. Highly Recommended

August 9 2017

Got the Gourmet Burger and a Milkshake from this place, and couldn’t be happier. The burger was massive and absolutely delicious. The shake was sweet, but perhaps a bit pricey for the size.Atmosphere is nice, and the staff are friendly. Recommended.

August 9 2017

“Amazingly tasty​ burgers.
Tried the Three Piggies, Juicy Lucy and Ribsy.
Also ordered onion rings and chips.
Burgers were well cooked and as promised on the menu.
Staff were helpful and friendly.
Might be wise to book ahead though, place is busy!”

August 8 2017

Simply stunning. Amazing burgers. We shared Three piggies, juicy Lucy and ribsy. Juicy awesome flavours. I’m Gunna have to call it, Melbourne’s best burgers. The service was really friendly and the waitress accommodating friendly and cool. Thanks Third Wave. We’ll be back.

August 8 2017

American BBQ and strong Russian influences make this a great place for tasty, hearty fare. Staff are always friendly and efficient; I went there on Fathers Day as a single person and got exactly the same, great level of attention and speed of service that all the larger family groups got.

August 8 2017

Great food. Nice ambience. One of my new favourite places.Portion size are big and very well priced.

August 8 2017

One of the best burger in city and really friendly staff. I’ve tried a few in Melbourne but this one wins in shot. Hardly recommended.

Great BBQ and burgers for lunch and dinner. Great coffee and brekkie in the AM. Candy bacon!

August 7 2017

The best cafe in Port Melb hands down. I’ve lived in the area for many years and these guys never disappoint. From their breakfasts to their dinner meals. They have excellent quality food that is just delicious! I have friends that travel long distances just to enjoy the food here. A local gem!

facebook-logo August 6 2017

Amazing service and amazing food. We got the half chicken and the cheeseburger. The burger was bigger then me and very flavorful. The chicken portion was very large and cooked to perfection. Many times chicken tends to be dry but the consistency and flavor worked together perfectly. We didn’t have room for dessert but from what other people ordered it looked incredible. Will definitely be coming back.They have half portions of most items so you can try everything! Staff was very friendly and helpful as well

facebook-logo August 6 2017

I’ve been a couple of times already, usually trying the monthly special. Amazing Mac and cheese, amazing onion rings, amazing burgers. Perfect for any meat lover!

facebook-logo August 6 2017

Love this place! Friendly atmosphere and great staff service. Love the extensive breakfast menu which includes helpful half serves. My favourite dish though is the cheeseburger Royale – can’t go wrong, never had a bad one! The shakes and drink menu is also delicious. Would not hesitate to return.

“Weekend mornings are always a treat at Third Wave, reminding us why we love living in Port Melbourne The coffees come fast and delicious (as you need after a big night or a big week at work ) and the breakfast muffin is the perfect size
Thanks a Third Wave for being so great and so local ”

I’ve been here a couple of times now and I rate it. Bacon and eggs very tasty and good coffee too, then for lunch the other day the Ruben sandwich wonderful, good sized servings.

Popped in for a quick takeaway burger, the menu is actually pretty extensive but i just got a burger to go. the customer service was good and only waited 10 mins for the burger. will have to come back again soon to eat in!

Walked away wishing I didn’t order the biggest ribs I could find, but so happy I did anyway. The dinosaur ribs were amazing. Paired with some good ol fashioned wheat beer, I was on heaven. Highly recommended!

“Went for the bacon taco last week, excellent service and great atmosphere.
The bacon taco was good, I won’t lie it did look a bit better than it tasted but the pork and mac and cheese in it were both epic.My mate had a serve of the half ribs, which were massive for a ‘half serve’, flavours were great,the bones came out clean and meat was tender and melted….”

So. Damn. Good.”

“If I could, I would give this place 6 stars! I came to dine in with my son for lunch and we had the naked cheeseburger as well as the beef brisket fries. It was heaven! Thank-you for a great meal and will definitely be back again!”

facebook-logo July 31 2017

Be warned: you will be tempted by a vast range of delicious food, not just the flavour-packed BBQ meats, but also indulgent sides, desserts and shakes. In combination, these can easily take a year off your life expectancy. But it’s totally worth it! The ribs are the absolute best you’ll find in Melbourne and are served with mouth-watering sauces. Also try the smoked Mac & Cheese side. The service is super-friendly too.

July 29 2017

Huge portion sizes! Definitely value for money. Not to mention food is super yummy! Lots of choices. Intersting drink options available. Will definitely be back. A happy customer

July 29 2017

Always amazing food and service. My favourite cafe to go to since moving to Port Melbourne and have brought friends and family here to show of their mouth watering food (always provide great hangover breakfasts also). Big variety in the menu that doesn’t disappoint.

July 29 2017

“Great place to eat. Got recommended by a mate and I’ll definitely recommend this to everyone else.
Took my partner and daughter… loved the food and milkshakes 🙂 staff were so friendly .
Definitely going back !!!”

“Excellent burgers and unreal price-to-portion ratio. I was blown away by how awesomely tasting and massive their classic hamburger was. Third Wave also enjoys pushing the envelope with some extravagant “”off menu”” items that you definitely need to try and ask about when you visit. I indulged in their bacon milk shake and it was a drink from pork heaven. Will definitely be back to see what other masterpieces they’ve created, as well as have a crack at their very reasonably priced breakfast menu.”

Quaint little place with a warm, comfortable yet classy vibe. Great service from the staff. I just had their cheeseburger and spicy chips. Pattie and pickles were perfect, the chips are what periperi chips wish they could be. Highly recommended, I’ll be coming back for the all you can eat soon.

July 23 2017

One of the best beef and rib venues in Melbourne!! Have repeatedly dined with family and friends at the Port Melbourne restaurant. The ribs are succulent, perfectly cooked and full of flavour. Make sure to give your stomach some space because you’re up for a feast!!

July 22 2017

The best BBQ I’ve had in Melbourne! The food is exceptional & comes at reasonable prices. Absolutely worth every penny. I’ve had their food about 5times now within 2months!

July 22 2017

Lovely cafe with very friendly staff! 10/10 for the fluffy pancakes.

Nice place also, near the beach for the walk after having one of their huge burgers. I tried the three little piggies this time and i highly recommend it. Can’t wait to try the others!”

“We used Menulog to order from Third Wave 2 nights ago. In all honesty this is one of the best take-away meals we’ve had in a very long time. It was delivered fast and the food was fresh, hot, extremely tasty, and it was pretty good value for money. My mouth is watering now just thinking about our experience! Don’t delay a Third Wave dining experience.
We’re going back very soon! Compliments to Chef and Owners.”

best place to go for brekkie on a weekend if you’re in Port Melbs. Always good coffee, fantastic food every time whether you want something small or huge (or a bacon milkshake 😉 and the service has always been lovely.Definitely recommended!

Candied Bacon, soft poached eggs, perfectly ripe avocado, truly heavenly

Great food, menu and staff. Ticked all the box’s. We traveled 40 minutes for the Oink balls. The were awesome. I had the pork ribs also there were only 5 but cooked just right with a great taste to them. My Partner has the Russian salad and loved it. Our daughter had the scrambled eggs that were divine. Everything we had was high quality and presented amazingly

Recently booked here for my birthday (in 2 weeks), and had always wanted to try it out, so finally made the short drive down from work, and settled in for lunch.Ordered the spicy chicken wings (side) and brisket loaded fries, and also got the Naked Cheeseburger (free with voucher).The wings were really delicious – not spicy at all, but plenty of flavour, well cooked, moist and saucy! I struggle with spicy food, but I don’t notice any real spice heat – which was good. Will get those again.The Naked cheeseburger was good – the patty was massive, cheese plentiful, and loved the tanginess of the pickles. I usually go for burgers with heaps on it, but this was pretty good, for a burger with minimal extras on it.The loaded fries came in a big bowl, really good sized portion – had to get doggy bag. Lots of gooey cheese sauce on it, and healthy helping of brisket. Only down side for me was brisket was mixed bag – some crunchy, some chewy, and some bites were fatty and tender. I love brisket – lucky enough to have tried it in Texas – and prefer fatty, tender brisket. But it wasn’t a massive issue.Place was very busy but staff were helpful, and provided extra napkins when requested.Had also tried the Oh Mamma burger previously via UberEats – now that was a yummy burger. Lots of flavours.I do recommend trying it out – the menu has plenty of options, plenty for me to come back for.

facebook-logo July 5 2017

One of my favourite cafe / restaurant for either breakfast, lunch and dinner. Food is absolutely fabulous and the service second to none! Highly recommended!

facebook-logo July 4 2017

First time to try this restaurant and it was totes amazing! Will definitely come back soon with my friends and let them try the burger and ribs! Can’t wait!

facebook-logo July 4 2017

Had brekky here one morning as the venue is close by. True to port melbourne fashion if you take a seat out on one of the sun bathed tables you will be exposed to a variety of pooches on their daily stroll which is fantastic for dog lovers – there are a few tables inside and under an awning if the weather isn’t favourable (or you don’t like dogs). Ordered a simple egg and Swiss cheese muffin and my god it was delicious! Eggs perfect cheese melted through and only $6! Great deal. My housemate had the green eggs and that was delicious as well. Will come back for dinner next time

“My fella and I dined here a couple of nights ago, was scrolling through joints for dinner in Port Melbourne came across these guys, checked out there web site and was sold when they offered me a free burger!! No booking but was seated quickly, ordered dinosaur ribs, mac n cheese, a couple of milkshakes and not to forget that burger offer!
Everything was cooked just right, burger juicy, meat fell off the bone, m&c cheesy goodness, we couldn’t get through all that deliciousness, so took the leftovers home. We weren’t looking for healthy just bloody tasty and we got it!!”

My fave BBQ ribs place in Melbourne.The ribs are amazing. The burgers incredible. The desserts mind blowing and the service and atmosphere friendly and warm. Love it.

facebook-logo July 3 2017

Food: Gorgeous sauces mesh perfectly with the pork ribs. Ribs were a little dry but came off the bone.The wife loved the Mac’N’Chesse (a double win for me). Nutella milkshake is smooth in the mouth and hits the sweet tooth fine.Service: Food came quite promptly and waitresses were attentive.Atmosphere: Warm and Cozy. (It’s a small place)

Dope food! All you can eat Tuesday is awesome! Really top people and great service. Will be back for sure. The BBQ meats are the best I’ve had in Australia!

facebook-logo July 3 2017

Food was fantastic!!!

facebook-logo July 3 2017

All I can say is… WOW. One of the best bbq grill and burger joints I’ve experienced in Melbourne. My girlfriend and I ordered and shared a platter of there slow cooked ribs and were blown away by how soft and flavoursome they were. We shared a burger between us (as burger lovers) and were happy to find our new local burger joint was here! Definitely recommend this place, the bacon shake is a must try also!

facebook-logo July 2 2017

The smoked meats are amazing here! I ordered a burger and a a plate of briskets and both were really tasty! Not sure if this is a regular thing but at the end of the meal, they offered some fresh gingerbread cookies :D.

facebook-logo July 2 2017

Tried the ribsy burger and ice cream sandwich and it was really good! Definetly my go to place for good burgers and ribs! Best place to eat at port melbourne

facebook-logo July 2 2017

Guys, this is possibly the best place in Melbourne to grab burger and chips! We got loaded fries and burgers this time, burgers – delicious as always but the loaded fries were just divine! So much cheese, absolutely delicious. The staff is very friendly and welcoming making sure every customer is being looked after. Although I didn’t have milkshake this time as we were so full I can highly recommend them all! they are all so delicious! Highly recommend this place, perfect for a friday night treat with friends!

facebook-logo July 2 2017

The sad thing is I used to live across the street from here for a year and only went once. That’s not saying the food is bad. Rather the opposite. It is American/Southwest with a bit of class. Fantastic flavour combinations. And you can really tell they take care of preparation. I’ve been for both Breakfast and Dinner. Had the Brisket Reuben sandwich! was amazing. The meat fell apart in your mouth. Wasn’t massive which was a nice change, cause half of the other places like this you leave half on your plate cause of run off. Relaxed atmosphere and reasonable pricing. Great area of port as well. Also make sure you try one of their many shakes… WOW!Also do yourself a favour and look at the dessert menu. I had the Peanut Butter and Nutella Pie. Amazing.

“Actually ended up coming here twice recently – first with a group of friends trying something new and then the following week with a group of people from work. Both times the food was excellent!The first time, we each got individual mains and shared sides – I got the pork ribs which were beautifully done and the BBQ sauces that they provide were delicious. Oink balls and brisket loaded fries were also the big winners.

With the work group, we actually ended up sharing 3 large meals between 4 of us – still couldn’t finish it all because of the generosity of the servings, but gave a much better selection the BBQ. We shared the brisket, beef ribs and chicken wings, along with more oink balls. The brisket was juicy and a good selection of the point and flat, but the most phenomenal part was the beef ribs – the best I’ve ever had!

Only wish would be that we could get a selection of all the meats as an individual meal on all nights, rather than just the all you can eat Tuesdays.

I will definitely be going back! ”

visited the third wave café for my wife’s birthday. great little spot. seated in the outdoor area, the staff served us very quickly. I order the pork ribs and spicy beer battered chip which were amazing. the pork ribs were tender and the bbq sauce the staff gave me was amazing! Will be back to try the all you can eat on Tuesdays. cant wait!

facebook-logo July 1 2017

The food was fantastic, had a great night celebrating my birthday day. The service was great and price was decent. I had the chicken creaser salad, OMG was amazing! From the tasty chicken, to the perfectly cooked bacon, the dressing and salad was all perfect topped off with tasty cheese. With a side of Smokey Mac & Cheese the whole dish and night was amazing. Defiantly be back again.

facebook-logo July 1 2017

Loaded cheese and bacon fries!!!! Was expected to be that good!!! But the most surprising would be the glazed mushroom!!! OMG! That was like vege heaven!! A must try if you are there!!! Even is entree or regular size but I felt is quite a lot!! The cheeseburger was just ok, not bad as I got it from the free voucher online on their website. Pretty casual dining so don’t expect fine dining. Well you shouldn’t as their best stuffs are the ribs and you should be very dirty after all….

facebook-logo July 07 2017

Had the most amazing burger! The ribs was also good aswell. I love that the staff was really friendly. Will recommend it to everyone i know. Good job and keep it up!

facebook-logo July 1 2017

Awesome food. I had the lamb shoulder and mac and cheese, my vegetarian friend had the veggie burger. Lamb was cooked to perfection and mac cheese was and thick and cheesy but not to much to make it over bearing. Prices were very reasonable and I would recommend third wave to every one.

I ordered the special scrambled eggs with creme fraiche and a side of pancakes forever and they were both amazing!! The eggs were really fluffy and tasty. Those pancakes with Nutella are everything you could imagine. I would definitely go back here 10/10

“This was my second time at Third Wave. The service is good, with the waitress professionally repeating the order. The burgers? Well, I indulged myself and ordered two; the Smokey Chicken and the Naked Cheeseburger.The flavours of the Smokey Chicken are rich and the textures varied. The Naked Cheeseburger, though its ‘naked’ is nowhere near lacking. The mustard flavour is gorgeous and the pickles are sweet n zingy.

I’m looking forward to my next visit, perhaps making it a weekly event. Cant have too much of a good thing can I?”

June 25 2017

Seriously great food! Some of the best beef ribs I’ve ever had, was absolutely delicious! Unfortunately we had to leave half way through our evening because of a family emergency, but the staff was so good about it, they packed up the food we had ordered but hadn’t been able to eat yet and gave us no fuss whatsoever. Wonderful food and great service, will absolutely be back to finish off unfinished business!

“The finest barbequed meats which can be found this side of the Carolinas.I seek only to educate you, prospective customer, about my history and methods with which I have used to reach such a bold and final declaration.

I am not a braggart, but I do not shrink from the truth for the purpose of humility. I am not a prideful or boastful man, but only by detailing the true and verifiable facts of myself can I properly describe how I have reached this conclusion. I will now lay out my list of feats, superior traits, and admirable deeds:

I can lift a fully-grown horse above my head, and I can hold my breath for ten minutes. To settle a wager, I once ate a pound of badger poison and then ran a kilometre in the nude. I cannot feel pain, and I can see for two kilometres unaided by a lens. No man can kill me. A medical doctor and two priests have written and signed a document confirming that I have no soul. There is no species of fauna in Australia which I have not personally killed and skinned. I will never sire a child because I loathe women. I bathe only once a year in an icy pond. I have burnt down one church per month for the last thirty years, and I will never be brought to justice because all lawmen fear me.

No finer meats will man taste than those purchased at Third Wave.

I certify with my signature that this declaration is sworn and true. Although I do not deny that I am an evil man to my core, I am no liar and I would never cheat a hungry Australian.

Signed in blood.

June 17 2017

Just amazing! I had the pancakes forever and it was delicious! And on the side to top it off, candied bacon! Seriously i couldnt get enough! The service was just super! Cant wait to visit again, this time im coming over for dinner! That menu tho

“9/10 (4.8 stars of you like that sorta thing)!
Burgers are HUGE with good quality ingredients and put together VERY well! I grabbed a cheese burger
(suuuper juicy amazing beef), and chili chips which were lovely too 🙂 massive size for the price and so many incredible options I’ve yet to try. Also they have a gorgeous range of sauces which they give you free reign over while you eat 😀 would recommend a spicier option but I didn’t explore them all so it might be there.
Only things I would change are a crisper bun and more chili seasoning on the chips, but that’s just
nitpicking and personal preference. Definitely gonna be back and one of the must try burger joints/ BBQs in Melbourne!!! 👍👍”

We went there on Mothers day. Even though they were fully booked out but still nice enough to accomodate us. Lovely staff and amazing food. Will be going there again definitely!!

“Third Wave is excellent; the staff were quick to greet us, and were helpful in picking something from the menu. They even helped us customise our order and worked around food allergies with no troubles, and brought us extra plates so we could share meals. We picked the smoked brisket and a burger, with sides of Russian salad and fries. The salad wasn’t what we expected – more of a coleslaw, but everything was flavoursome and delicious. As far as American smokehouses in Melbourne go, this stands as amongst the best.

All around the experience was flawless, we’ll be back for sure! ”

facebook-logo May 20 2017

Came here for my brothers birthdays last week and shared half a plate of pork spare ribs and half of the delicious “oh mamma” burger. Both were tantalising and cooked to perfection. I’ve travelled to a few steak houses (and burger joints) and this place is definitely in my top 2. Highly recommend trying a meal from this place, thee bacon shake is next level too!

And I finished with the white hot chocolate it was very soft and delicious. Thank you for the service, great experience, I recommend the place!”

facebook-logo May 19 2017

Best meat I’ve had in a very long while, big portions and amazing sides. Great beer selection and overall reasonably priced. We spent 50$ each drinks included for a full on dinner, and we were very happy by the end of the meal. The place is small, make sure you book in advance. I dare you to try the Bacon Milkshake, and yes, it’s exactly what the name suggests.

May 18 2017

“Have been enjoying the delights of Third Wave for a year and a half now, via their delivery service, so was very excited to finally have the opportunity to travel across town and sample the fair freshly plated.
Mr B and I were not disappointed as we enjoyed a serve of succulent beef ribs, soft lamb shoulder with the pancetta peas and (my personal favourite) the smoked mac n cheese. Other past recommended dishes include their awesome onion rings, the kipflers, the dinner size worth Russian Salad and their Cheeseburger Royale.

Ambience in the restaurant wasn’t bad, though I’d prefer some dimmer lighting for a dinner service and some background music. Staff service was helpful and friendly.

Highly recommended and will definitely continue to enjoy their delivered meals…especially because I think the servings are little larger when they arrive at my door. ”

facebook-logo May 17 2017

“This place is cozy! Staff is so friendly. I had the glass of Bacon Milkshake, the world needs to know this delight.
Well, is there anything bacon that is not good? Maybe not! Hahaha To accompany also bovine ribs, very succulent and well tempered. I will come back whenever possible.”

facebook-logo May 17 2017

Even the basic burgers were fantastic, can’t wait to try something a little more fancy. Looking around the room and everyone else’s food looked fantastic too, can’t wait to try some other things on the menu.

facebook-logo May 15 2017

“Debut visit to the Third Wave Cafe following high recommendation from a chef & good friend of mine (so no pressure!). Was pressed for time, so opted for the gourmet burger options (me & the fiancee), selecting the Smoked Lamb & Ribsy from the plentiful list of options available, with the additional pancetta peas side dish (don’t go large unless you’ve not eaten for days, huge portions!!!)

OMG – these burgers are another level! Huge serving, but masterfully created without overkill, oozing juice, flavour and a perfect mix of toppings and sauces. Like I said servings are fabulous to the extent that we couldn’t progress beyond the mains to a dessert (a rare occurrence!), suffice to say if we had ventured on we would’ve needed airlifting out of the place for sure.

What a fabulous, trendy cafe – as a newcomer to the area I’m counting the days to returning to tackle the American BBQ selection.

Nice touch also that you can select to buy some of the sauces used in-house, there are curious daily specials – including extravagant milkshake creations, plus a good stock of craft beers for those inclined ; )

Rounded off with great, friendly, attentive & professional service from the staff.

Bypass breakfast, make this your food mission for the day – Be sure to book ahead to avoid disappointment as even a midweek trip saw the place fill very quickly – this is a cosy nook which definitely makes you want to hang around for longer! ”

Well YES they can, and they are… In a word, “BURGASMIC” … how can a simple “Naked Cheeseburger” (with added Bacon of course) be so delicious? Was it the dripping cheese, the spicy relish, the perfect bun, or the char-grilled patty? ALL OF THE ABOVE!! until Thursday afternoon i thought 8-Bit did the best burgers in Melbourne… now i know this to be untrue… you have a new fan Third Wave Cafe, and many more to follow i’d say… keep up the good work!

“Dropped into Third Wave after hearing about it through social media (many times!) I just happened to drive past and being hungry I treated myself to a burger – the gourmet burger – was unreal!! Huge patty full of juices and a perfect mix of toppings and sauces, so many other good options on the burger menu to try next time! Cannot wait to check out all the epic smoked meats they produce too, saw someone getting into the beef ribs which looked incredible!!

Thanks for a perfect stop guys, see you again soon 😊 ”

“I am glad I booked in advance. Last Friday arrived at 6.30pm. Shown to a nice table for 2. Enquired whether we could sit at another spot but all were pre-booked. The staff were excellent . Cafe warm and cosy. Service spot on. The ribs were excellent . So tender and juicy, melt in your mouth. I will certainly return for more!!!!
Keep up the good work. Ciao John ”

I travel from Sydney for their ribs!!! Seriously, nobody here even comes close. Your succulent glaze is perfect, your ribs are meaty and your sides are just right. Prices are better than here too. Can’t wait to try your burgers next. Keep up your great work.

April 22 2017

Food and drinks are exceptional. The Nutella shake is stuff made of food dreams. The burger/sandwiches/BBQ is just plain delicious. Would recommend this to any food lover. The only draw back, only one, is price. The bill can add up pretty quickly depending on your food/eat out budget.

April 22 2017

I had a really great time there with some of my friends. The food and service are amazing!!!!

facebook-logo April 22 2017

This is simply the best place for breakfast in Port Melbourne! I’m not generally one to make recommendations (I don’t need that pressure!) but if anyone ever asks me for a breakfast recommendation this is the only place I’m willing to recommend… because I know they’ll love it! The food is always sooooooo good and the staff are friendly and efficient. 5 BIG STARS!

If you are looking for awesome burgers, or soma classic American ribs and mac & cheese, look no further. Third Wave is your stop to satisfy all your American food cravings.
My personal choice is a Royal Cheesburger but remember to upgrade your patty to Juicy Lucy!

Went with a friend to have dinner on the 13th of March at Third wave cafe. We ordered the ribs n it was so succulent n delicious. The best I had in Melbourne.

“The best American BBQ in Port Melbourne.
I had the beef ribs which were very tasty with a thick smoke ring around the outside of the tender beef. A little spicy but not so much that it overpowers the taste.

The side of smoked mac and cheese was also very good. Everyone else on the table had burgers, which were massive. ”

facebook-logo April 12 2017

I went to Third Wave for dinner with my girlfriend as she lives just down the road and we loved it! The menu had a lot of great sounding food on offer so we got a burger each and a few sides. I actually struggled to choose what to eat because it all sounded great so I went with the 3 Little Piggies and it was awesome! I will be going back soon and trying out the Juicy Lucy.

Have been to the former Prahran venue – excellent. I believe the Prahran restaurant is no longer affiliated but looking forward to visiting the Port Melbourne venue. Meats are excellent, as is the bacon! Highly recommended.

Great food and location. Very attentive to our group of 10 which also had 2 toddlers. Their burgers and ribs are some of the best we’ve had. 3 Little Piggies are a must-try if you have the appetite.

“Great food, it’s hard to find this kind cuisine here in Australia. I am a regular watcher of the food network and there’s always something about big burgers, brisket or ribs and that’s exactly what these guys have and the flavours are plentiful.
The staff were great, very friendly and provided us with everything we needed, always there on call and we’re very comforting.
You can’t a place like this, especially in Melbourne, definitely recommend for meat lovers alike ”

If you’re feeling like American BBQ, ribs and burgers, this is your destination! They do huge burgers and a flavoursome beef brisket! (I need to come back to try the ribs) For dessert I had the salted caremal ice cream waffle sandwich and it did not disappoint! The staff were really friendly and even put a candle on my dessert to celebrate my birthday! Extra points for the great service. And they serve great mojitos!

We had a fabulous night here last night and tried the All You Can Eat Degustation – all the food was fantastic and it was the ultimate way to try the different BBQ meats the dishes. The servings were very generous and like it says on the menu it’s “all you can eat” and they are happy to keep bringing out more and more. The staff were very helpful and friendly and we will all be back again very soon. I have to say the food was fabulous from starters to dessert. My favourite BBQ is the Pork Ribs, but the others loved the Brisket and the Salmon, we all loved the sides and the sauces… can’t say enough about how good the food was.

Went out for lunch with my girlfriend and found the staff very friendly and welcoming I decided the famous ribs so succulent and full of flavour these guys also make great coffee we’ll be back soon

Why oh why did I wait so long! We made a last minute reservation and were lucky enough to get a table.

Just went to Third Wave for a Birthday and everyone loved thier meal. Pork Ribs were devine, Beef ribs even better, I had the O Mamma burger with onion rings and Oh man was it one hell of a tasty burger. The kids ate the chicken and drank the nutella milkshake in seconds, they said it tasted like liquid ice-cream. Service was great and we are definately going back to try out some of the other delicious looking dishes. My only wish was they had a few more American alcoholic drinks, I was hoping to wash it down with a glass of American Honey Whiskey but settled for Jim Beam and dry. One tip, make sure you go hungry coz the meals are very filling.

We ordered the Juicy Lucy, 3 Little Piggies, with a side of Crispy Coleslaw, Beer Battered Chips and Onion Rings ….
I said to my boyfriend don’t worry there will be plenty for you …. I wont eat all of this … BUT I did because it was so delicious. We have also been for breakfast and I had the ‘special’ scrambled eggs which claim to get you hooked …

Awesome food at a great price. Been here several times but never had the cheeseburger. It was amazing value for money and definitely not your normal cheeseburger.

The side dishes are out of this world (the smokey mac and cheese is a meal on its own). The milkshakes are inventive and sooooo yummy and the desserts are to die for. The service is quite speedy even on busy nights when i have visited and the wait staff are very attentive (was very busy one visit and only 1 waitress working and still my glass of water never went empty).
The price is also quite reasonable given the quality of the food and I have never walked away unhappy with how much I paid. If you have time go check them out!!! ”

As staff leave the replacement just seems to fit in to the place and that is a skill the owners/management seem to posses and one not wasted on me. I have enjoyed my association with this gem of.

The Juicy Lucy was an awesome burger, just the right amount and ratio of ingredients so that you could enjoy the taste of everything. The burger patties were tasty as hell. Thanks to the waiter who insisted I take 4 napkins with me, you were so right buddy!
Can’t wait to come back and work my way through the burger menu.
Great work!”

“Thank you for the free Naked burger offer, which I had used today. It was no fuss, and only conditions were that it could not be claimed on Friday evening or on Saturday, seeing the small size of the place I can understand it would get very busy during these peak times. The burger itself was great, and this place was easy to get to with ample 2 hour parking near by. I took the time to peruse the menu to see what else was on offer, and I’m keen to come back for the American BBQ food. Cheers, and thankyou.”

Third Wave is a great spot for any meal, but they do brunch well! The staff are terrific too. Very attentive. The brunch menu is great value. Well prices with lots of options. Candied bacon is great. The options are many and very good tastes. I’d go Every Sunday if I could.

My friend and I have been going to this café for a number of years and it has never let us down service excellent and food even better. Staff are very good a very attentive.

Have been many times and have always had a great experience. The burgers, milkshakes and breakfast menu is delicious! Service has always been great.

Go there regularly for Breakfast. Spicy Ratatouille Baked Eggs is excellent. But then again everything is tasty! Great people running it too, always been very friendly!

January 16 2017

My whole family went to this place. The service was superb and the atmosphere so friendly. Each of us got different plates and we sampled each other’s. The burgers were fabulous, juicy and with sooo much flavour. The ribs were ‘melt in the mouth’ delicious and the salads and side dishes were so tasteful. This place is fabulous. Try to leave some room for dessert as the key lime pie was amongst the best u have ever tasted. Love this place for a quick lunch or a get together. Suits all occasions

“Wanted to try everything on the menu, ordered the slow cooked beef brisket and lamb. Generous servings and fantastic flavours, melted in your mouth. The coleslaw is a must have, so refreshing! �”

“Love this place… Firstly I’d like to thank our waitress for seating us and taking our order which arrived after a small wait which was great. I had the ribs and Omg the meat just fell off the bone. Wifey and lil one had burgers which had them full after eating 3 quarters of them they enjoyed the food and dessert. Awesome service and food… Well be back to taste the brisket.”

Third Wave has been my #1 breakfast spot since moving into the area a couple of years ago. The breakfast panini & spicy ratatouille baked eggs are to die for! They also do an American BBQ evening menu which we’ve had a couple of times with friends and we’ll certainly be back for more!

facebook-logo January 9 2017

One of the best Brisket sandwiches I’ve ever had. I regularly cook brisket myself so I have high standards when it comes to this sort of meat. The staff were friendly and accommodating. Would highly recommend this to anyone with a good appetite

Most amazing Gluten Free lamb burger!!!! As someone who is GF its very hard to find good GF burgers, Third Wave is worth the the trip!

January 6 2017

Loved this place! We had the oink balls for a starter and the lamb shoulder and chicken for mains. It’s hard to find places that suit my partner and I, but Third Wave ticked all the boxes. Really fresh food, great service, will definitely be back to try the burgers!

The burgers are just ridiculously good. A friend and I got enticed in with a free burger voucher and have been back multiple times since. The hardest part is deciding whether to try something new or stick with what you already know is awesome. Every new burger there I try makes it that much harder to make a decision next time. Onion rings are great too, crispy and not oily. American beers go down a treat and just love going to this place each and every time I’m in the area.

It was awesome. I have been to Third Wave Cafe with my son and wife two weeks ago. It was sunny and the rips and burger were juicy. The guy was friendly. I want to visit here again.

December 26 2016

Looking for an excellent burger? THIS IS THE PLACE!

December 26 2016

This is my favorite cafe in Melbourne. I came here several times already and had lots of opportunities to try different things in their menu. I can confidently say that everything is delicious but their hazelnut hot chocolate and blueberry pancakes are to die for. Service is great as well. Highly recommended.

December 22 2016

I was there last night with friends and had no idea what the food would be. The lamb burger really surprised me and I think it is the best lamb burger I have ever had. The slow-cook lamb was so soft and almost melting in the mouth. The source was really nice and the veggie was fresh. I regret that I did not order a beer to go with the amazing burger and it definitely gave me an excuse to visit here again.

facebook-logo December 22 2016

“Great place for burgers, thats all I’ve tried so far. Tried the classic and it didn’t disappoint one bit. Gonna go for Ribsy next time around. Sounds exciting. Might give their shakes a try too. Definitely recommending this place to friends”

“Burgers are out of this world, seriously good eats! Onion Rings were crispy, beer is nice and cold. You can’t go wrong here with the food. There is about a dozen different burgers and I want to try them all! Had the RIbsy recently which was just ridiculous, every bite was heaven.”

Delicious American BBQ.

December 19 2016

“A recent move has resulted in us living across the street from these guys and it’s a constant battle to not eat there daily.. the amazing smells constantly wafting from their cafe into our lounge is mouth watering. On the few times we haven’t been able to resist any longer it’s ended very well with us having to roll ourselves back across the street full and utterly satisfied. The meat is always super flavoursome and just melts in your mouth and the sauces which you can buy by the bottle to take home are to die for.
The girls working there are all very attentive and friendly and the atmosphere just gets better as it’s becoming quite the hot spot (in fact take note, it’s definitely getting busier as people discover this place so get in quick before you can’t avoid the lines)
One last thing.. did you know they do breaky?? Yep! It’s legit and sticking with the American menu hearty, tasty and filling.. get on it! Great American style joint. ”

facebook-logo December 19 2016

“By far the best BBQ I’ve had anywhere in Melbourne.
Check this place out!”

facebook-logo December 17 2016

When me and a good friend of mine came here for a feed I really didn’t know what to expect. But was simply blown away by how well everything tasted. I had the O Mamma burger which consisted of smoked beef, pulled pork and bacon and was just incredible throughout. I would recommend to get it 100%

“Had a classic burger, spicy beer batter chips and oreo milkshake and was impressed. The burger was generous and super tasty, the chips had a good crunch and were “”spicy”” in a flavoursome rather than chilli sort of way and milkshake ,although a bit pricey, was amongst one of the best I have ever had!”

Been meaning to visit The Third Wave cafe for a while now, and I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the meals we ordered. Everything was fresh and wonderfully prepared. The Gourmet Burger was so good, in fact, I would go so far as to say the name for it was underrated, as it was truly better than a gourmet burger.

facebook-logo December 2 2016

Friendly staff and fast service. Got a great coffee served in no time. Nice atmosphere with suitable opening hours. Can eat or drink inside or out. Or just grab a cup of jo and go

“I ordered the Naked Cheeseburger and small onion rings. And I can say: Third Wave Cafe truly lives up to the hype.

Their cheeseburger was warm-to-hot – the perfect temperature for a burger. The 150g beef patty was reminiscent of a beautiful, rustic homemade burger – juicy, but also flavoursome and almost crumbly.

The simple, authentic ingredients served as a peeled-back backdrop, which let the patty shine. It truly is a “naked” cheeseburger.

Where do I start with the onion rings? I have finally found what my soul has been seeking: the perfect onion ring.

Not burnt. Not overprocessed. Not dry.

Juicy, crispy, tantalising onion rings.

The service was, fast and friendly, yet relaxed. ”

facebook-logo December 1 2016

Group of us came in on Saturday lunchtime. We had the classic and oh mamma burgers. And the slow cooked chicken. The food was very tasty and so was the milkshake and iced mocha we had. The only let down I had was took over 30 mins for food to come out but it was packed out so don’t let that put you off was well worth the wait and I’m coming back to try the 3 little piggies.

facebook-logo December 1 2016

A deboned rib, pulled pork, bacon and Swiss cheese burger. Is there much more to say? This was my first visit and it will not be my last. Great for American BBQ!

facebook-logo November 30 2016

Fantastic place. I went here after finding them on Bartercard, the food was amazing took a short time to come out aswell. Really juicy burgers, a lot of source but most importantly the Burger held together. Port Melbourne store is the best of all third waves
I will certainly come back with Aryan Sagar

“Went there with two mates today.

Bloody fantastic, food took about 15 minutes which was pretty quick and it tasted amazing.

Really juicy and the bread held most of the juices like a sponge.

Prices were quite cheap as well given how generous the servings were.

facebook-logo November 20 2016

Have had delivery from here a number of times.
Delivery: looks bad but tastes great. Hands down to Third Wave Cafe for being one of the firsts to offer delivery BBQ in this area. Innovation is important and I believe Third Wave Cafe’s inspired pairings and zesty take on American BBQ are really innovative. It simply cannot be beaten. Candy Bacon travels well but often can benefit from a whiz under the grill. Wings: always great, come with sauce, maybe bread? Order bread seperate because it can’t be beaten. Brisket is expensive. Ribs are above average. A tad expensive but always worth it.

facebook-logo November 20 2016

Nice place and good service. Will be back soon. International atmosphere

facebook-logo November 19 2016

I live nearby and am a frequent customer at Third Wave PM. Day or night, this place has the cure. Without doubt my favourite coffee’s in Melbourne, with a hangover menu to boot. For a good mains meal though, and apart from the obvious BBQ rib speciality of theirs (amazing!), I have been recently working my way through their burger range and have become addicted! Highly recommend..

Best American BBQ meats I’ve tried so far! My favs are the pork ribs and slow cooked lamb shoulder with a side of coleslaw. Best Friday lunch

“I don’t normally write reviews, but I think this one, I guess I can make an exception! 😉 Had amazing food and really friendly staff. Me and my mates ordered the dinosaur ribs expecting it to be crap like most restaurants with barely any meat and 90% bone, but our assumptions were completely wrong and it was really tender and juicy,well-marinated with so much delicious meat falling off the bone! 10/10 would come again. ”

facebook-logo November 8 2016

Went here yesterday (07/11) to the Port Melbourne location and was really happy with the food and service. I had a Naked Cheeseburgers and the beef ribs. The burgers were succulent but next time I would swap the bun for brioche as the one it came with was a little too dry for me. Otherwise, fantastic. The beef ribs were tender and plentiful, and came with horseradish (first time i’ve been served horseradish in Aus, thought it was a pom thing). Some of the best ribs i’ve ever had! And the in-house sauces are delish – try the apple bbq!
9/10 For food and service

“4th time coming and still a great favourite when it comes to American BBQ food. Their beef brisket is definitely my top choice in town. Loved the slow cooked shoulder and the burger patties are tender, juicy and tasty.

Having said that, the Reubens sandwich is amazing and their ribs also get a special mention. The Candy bacon is very interested and well executed, although not on my list of must eats since I’m not so fond of the caramelised sweetness (that’s just me). Very similar to the oink balls …

Now desserts, like the very friendly and knowledgable waitress said: the Nutella cheesecake is like eating Nutella spoonfuls from the jar!!!!

Portions are generous and the service is friendly.

Perfect venue to get your carnivore taste buds delighted. ”

Went down to try one of the burgers they have. The oh mumma burger was brilliant. The meat melted in my mouth and was not overly greasy from the cheese. The chips were crunchy and delicious. Very nice ice coffee, strong flavored and not bland. Quick service and not a long wait to get the food on the table. Will be going back there again.

Love the Naked Cheeseburger – juicy gooy goodness. Am too healthy to try the candy bacon but other customers seem to love it.

Had some friends over for a rib feast and one said it was just about his favourite meal ever.”

“I went down on a recommendation and am so glad I did! I only had 30min and they were friendly, speedy and accomodating.
I’ve always wanted to try candied bacon so had the candy bacon breakky. It was delicious though a tad spicy for me but
I’m a total light weight when it comes to spice. Poached eggs were done perfectly. Everything that came out of the kitchen looked totally amazing and the smell was… well let’s just say you have to go in there to see what I mean. Can’t wait to go back.”

“Third Wave is a great choice for breakfast, lunch or a casual dinner. The breakfasts are really unusual,
not jus the standard bacon, eggs and toast. You have to try the Candy Bacon – bacon with a sweet peppery coating.
They also have things like Eggs Benedict Florentine Fusion, breakfast burgers and pancakes. For lunch/dinner they have burgers, ribs and a few lamb dishes. But I can’t get past the Cheeseburger Royale and onion rings. I would be 5kg lighter if I didn’t live so close! But highly recommended- give it a try!”

“Came in for lunch today and had the Three little pigs burger, pork ribs, beef ribs, Mac and cheese and oink balls.
The ribs were soooo tender, fall off the bone tender, tasty and juicy. The Burger was a medley of delightful flavours and sensations. Oink balls? Wow! I could sit in front if the TV watching The Chiefs play with a bucket of Oink balls on my lap! Great customer service on top of the great food….
The complete package! That’s why I keep coming back!
Go Chiefs!”

Fantastic Coffee, Incredible food (Paleo Friendly too!) – the breakfasts are something a bit different if you want to get away from the standard Eggs Benny and “Various attractive leaves on a plate”. Hearty food (Shakshuka with Smoked Lamb and Feta is a personal favourite!) in a decent location!

“Oh Mamma… burger. The first words out of his mouth after the first bite was “oh, Sweet Jesus!” When he finished he said “normally I don’t like brioche buns, but this worked wonderfully well.”I ordered the slow cooked Beef Brisket. Melt in the mouth goodness. The Russian Salad side that I ordered, went beautifully with the flavours of the beef. I could not finish it, but luckily He helped demolish it

We are coming back to try both breakfast and dinner ??”

“review: WHAT IS THE IDEAL CHEESEBURGER?

ANSWER: your sesame-freckled buns should be soft on the inside but crispy-toasty on the outside, your beef patties should be juicy and should taste like good quality meat grilled to perfection, your pickles should be spicy and zesty enough, your melted cheddar should have a bit of smoky aroma and it should butterly-top the beef, your home-made tomato sauce ingredients should be a top secret but all the ingredients put together into one spectacular burger should taste nice and be full of flavour… oh yes, and let’s mustard it…
We all agreed that was the case when having lunch today at the Third Wave Cafe 30 Cato St Prahran, VIC 3181
We also ordered: side salads. Alex said he never tried the cabbage salad this good.
My green salad was simply terrific.”

But nevertheless, I was extremely impressed with the customer service that resulted from the mistake. They organised to
have the order redelivered ASAP, refunded our money and put in some free drinks.
The delivery driver was sincere and apologised also.
Mistakes happen from time to time, and the way that Third Wave handled this one was a textbook perfect response.
Thanks again for your courtesy and professionalism, and I look forward to ordering from you again. The cheeseburgers were great.”

We’ve been here a couple of times, first time when this place was doing American BBQ before almost anyone else in Melbourne. Ordered sliders, both types of Ribs, Chicken, Lamb Shoulder and Beef Brisket. Everything was delicious and we ate too much but regret nothing! The desert pies are great too, just need to remember to leave some room. The service was friendly too, seems like they really care about the food and customer experience.

“Best ribs in Melbourne!” I’ve been eating breakfasts, lunches and dinners here since this place opened many years ago, so thought it was about time that I reviewed it.

You don’t need a knife, the meat…

“Dinner with a group” Small place so probably a good idea to book, we were seated at a table in the center of the room with stools to sit on, they were pretty uncomfortable. Service was prompt and helpful (we were there early) in our group we had ribs, chicken, brisket, wings, bacon and quesadilla along with some sides. Everyone enjoyed their meat dishes,…

“A FAVOURITE OF POSS” It is easy to locate and only 5 mins. drive from Melbourne central. Our first experience was September 2015. The novel thing about this eatery is that most of the items on the menu are BBQed. It may not be everyone’s preference but since Poss’s discovery we have been back 3/4 times. The last being Christmas 2015. In September I ordered the ½ Chook with mushrooms side and Poss ordered the Brisket. Both dishes were moist and tender. We shared the salad. The flavours from the meal having been BBQed were tantalising and one of the reasons why the Poss likes coming back I think. The ambience is also pleasant as it is situated one block back from the Bay in Port Melbourne and not on the main drag. Alfresco seating is also available with overhead heaters for the colder nights. On the occasions that we have been there was an average attendance so we found the the service to be fine.

“Good lunch spot ” Went there today for lunch and enjoyed the smoked salmon bagel and coffee. The second coffee was better when I asked for a stronger cup. Friends had a Russian salad and a cabbage roll dish (the latter a generous size) that looked good. My taste sample of theirs tasted good. The place is wheelchair friendly and so were the staff. Nice on a sunny day to sit outside and saw that it was now a restaurant at night as well as a cafe by day. Have not been there for a little while so it was good to go back and see the variety of choices was still there.

This place does American style BBQ very very well. There was no meat left on the bones when I finished. Very succulent ribs. The best American BBQ restaurant in Melbourne. Good coffee.

“Best ribs in Australia” I am American and have been living in Australia for 14 years and this place has the best ribs by far than any other place I’ve been to here. The meat is so tender you don’t even need a knife. It’s just falling off the bone! You will not fine another place that makes American style bbq like here!

“Fantastic” One of the best meals I’ve had in ages. Had the oink balls as a starter, wow they were awesome. Pork mince wrapped in streaky bacon with BBQ sauce ( drool ) . One of the other guys got the Mac n cheese and it was the best I’ve tasted including America. We all orders burgers and they melt in your mouth. The meat was so tender you hardly need to chew. Great meal.

This is my go to for breakfast (the Candy Bacon is almost impossible to pass up) but I went from dinner the other night. I’ve been trying all sorts of BBQ restaurants lately and I LOVED the beef ribs at Third Wave. They didn’t even need the sauce!

We came hungry and left satisfied. We ordered pork ribs, beef ribs and brisket. All were presented beautifully and tasted even better. Pork ribs could have used a sweet, rich glaze, but the beef ribs and brisket were bold, with excellent texture. Save room for dessert. The ice cream sandwich is awesome!

“We were told about this restaurant by a friend you said they had the best deserts, so we decided to try it, my husband loves ribs and ever since he tried their ribs he will never order anything else, he love the pork ribs, I love the beef ribs, they are the most tender melt in your mouth ribs I have ever tasted on par to the best restaurant ribs in America, the candy bacon is super delicious also along with the corn bread, in fact everything we have orders has been super delicious and the service is nothing less of excellent. The only thing I can fault is that the place is small although they do have an outside area but if its really cold you wouldn’t want to be sitting outside because even with the heaters running it still is chilly, you must book in advance as the restaurant is always full, customers all look happy and we have been there quite a few times and never disappointed. The first we went was for our one year Wedding Anniversary in April and since then we have been back 3 times more, we don’t live nearby so its quite an outing to go.

With a group with varied tastes, we decided to try this restaurant that offered both Russian food and American BBQ. We were not disappointed. The candy bacon was deliciously decadent. The smoked brisket was tender and flavorful. Ditto the lamb shoulder. We split a large side of coleslaw between three, and that was plenty of food. The blinis were also excellent. We made a reservation, which was definitely needed on a Sunday night because the place was completely full by 6:30. Excellent wine list. Very good experience all round.

Last year I celebrated my birthday at Third Wave Cafe with my friends and earlier this year I have been lucky enough to be invited to my very first zomato meet up. If you are interested in Third Wave Cafe origin check out my last review. I’m so excited to meet other bloggers such as Jenny from Confession of a Little Piggy, Daisy from Escort and Thief and many more, there are also several zomato personnel. I finally met Greg, the owner of Third Wave Cafe. We started with The Hit man or Woman – kahlua, baileys with a whack of espresso milkshakes ($16) and Better Sneakers Bar – caramel ice cream, peanut butter, caramel, cocoa milkshakes. Both of them are super delicious and creamy, better than any other freak shakes I have tasted. Love their ribs especially their beef briskets. We stayed for hours at Third Wave Cafe because we had so much fun and Greg has been a great host with generous food. Third Wave Cafe certainly have one of the best ribs in Melbourne and this won’t be my last time visiting them.

I made my order all the way from the UK for my friends birthday (as a surprise) in Melbourne. I have added some extra instructions to the order, such as (removing invoice and wishing my friend a happy birthday). The instructions were applied even better that wanted, the driver wished my friend happy birthday in person, as well as a writing on the order wishing him a happy birthday. Delivery time was so precise to the minute! wanted it to be delivered at 07:00 pm and it was delivered exactly at 07:00! I ordered the beef ribs, chicken wings and potatoes which my friend had loved all. Even the beer was delivered freezing cold. To be honest, these lads apparently know how to take care of their business and I highly recommend it. Thank you for everything you have done to make my friend’s days, and I am keeping my promise of visiting your restaurant the first thing when I visit Australia
