Third Wave has established itself as arguably the best American BBQ restaurant in Melbourne. We serve the most amazingly flavoursome Slow Smoked meats and fish. From juicy, meaty Pork Ribs and Brisket to Smoked Salmon. There is an extensive range of sides including Glazed Mushrooms, Duck Fat Confit Potatoes and Smoked Mac and Cheese. The other specialty is Paleo and Russian (the owners are Russian so thought it would be appropriate to add a small selection of Russian Classics). During the day we serve great breakfast options and really good coffee.

  • Bit on the expensive side, but worth it.
    Chicken Caesar Salad is interesting, 80% chicken 20% salad ratio was a surprise!
    Loaded sweet potatoe fries, watch out, it was a big dish that ended up lunch the next day, you need a run after you eat the creamy sauce!
    Burgers were good and the mushrooms are fantastic.
    Russian salad is ok, probably not as good as before.
    Packaged well although unfortunately it all got tossed around a bit during delivery.

  • I have tried to call the restaurant several times and no response. Food was cold and very dry when it arrived, They missed both desserts we ordered and I have been trying to call for a refund but they never answer. When you are spending almost $100 here, to have this service is very disappointing. Will not return

  • The order arrived quickly more than half an hour ahead of the quoted time.
    I was excited to try American style food, but sadly it did not live up to my expectations.
    We ordered the brisket which was quite nice.
    The chicken wings were just ok, nothing special.
    Coleslaw was yummy.
    The Mac and cheese was the highlight.
    Corn bread was very dense and sweet - which was unexpected.
    The sauces were interesting and very yummy, and a whole big bottle was received with the order.
    Not sure I’d order again, might give their other meat dishes a try, but was overall unimpressed with the ones we ordered.

  • Ordered from the restaurant about 5:45pm. Order was delivered an hour later with no meat just two boxes of chips. Rang and requested they resend the order, the guy I spoke to told me it would be another 45 minutes wait but he would send out a dessert as a goodwill gesture. 10 minutes later another call with a woman who said she was retracting that offer and would only send the original meal out again and it would take 45 minutes (again). Brisket was nice when it eventually got here. Shame, not a fan of the service. Won't order again.

  • portion is usually more than what i got last night for the beef ribs. one of the pieces of ribs was burnt so much that i could not eat it. Delivery time is always on point though and apart from last night, food is usually very good. chips are good and generous portion.

  • This is an issue consistently. Their food is incredible. The professionalism, the courtesy and attitude of staff is disgusting.

    We are busy is not an excuse to be 35 mins over collection time. If you’re busy and can’t keep up then reflect this in collection times. There are a particular couple of staff who work there who have zero service skills and drag down the reputation of this place.

    Good amazing, staff appalling

  • We've ordered from here 3 times. With each order the meat portions have gotten progressively smaller. Last night was the third and last time we will be ordering from here. We literally got 2....yes 2 slices of brisket and just 2 beef ribs. Considering a small meat costs between $25 and $30, the portions should be larger. Apart from that fact the food is good but much too expensive for what you get.

  • I used to love Third Wave but had noticed the quality slowly slipping. After taking a break from ordering I decided to give them one last go. Unfortunately, the quality has plummeted. At the same time, prices have slowly increased up while portions have decreased. I will not be ordering from here again. Shame, because they used to be amazing.

  • Had been wanting to try this place for ages, finally did and it was amazing! Delivery time was about half an hour before the text message; the ribs were among the most tender and flavoursome I've had (and they were big - 2 didn't even have a bone in them, just all meat); the Mac & Cheese was spectacular and to top it off, when I chose a sauce as part of the special, I didn't expect it to be a whole bottle of it. Very, very impressed. Definitely ordering again.
