I've gone to Rock Star tattooing for both piercings and tattoos. Conner and Ellie are so nice and good at what they do. I... recommend them and will be back more
Sales staff were very good during the initial sales process. Felt like they slowed the process down a bit once I'd signed... the deal and it took longer than I expected to get the car. Also I felt the attempts to sell paint protection, upholstery protection and tinting etc... were a little bit pushy and disingenuous, with the lady I spoke to claiming that other companies which I have used in the past were inferior and not proper protection. I have it on good authority that this is not the case and really a brand new car should not need such products for several years more
The lunch cruise is where delicious flavors & breathtaking views come together to create memories that will sail with you... forever 🤩⛵🛳️read more

We took our car in to have a tire low pressure warning checked. The tire was punctured too close to the sidewall to be... repaired. The service department put the spare tire on in its place, gave us an estimate for a new set of tires, and did not charge us because the tire was irreparable. Very professional, courteous, and timely more
I could not be any happier with the service I experienced and the tattoo I ended up with. I walked in with a general idea of... what I wanted, and was surprised at how welcoming everyone was. I showed Conor what I wanted, he gave me some feedback, and quickly started working on the stencil. Within 30 minutes he was done with the stencil and we started the tattoo process. During which they put on Stranger Things for me to watch. Throughout the tattooing I had many questions and Conor professionally answered each and cleared any doubts and confusion I had. I really love that he used his own perspective, expertise, and experience to touch up my idea and plan. It looks better than I could have ever imagined and will most definitely come back for more. I cannot recommend these guys enough. Thanks again Rockstar!read more

We spotted the Sydney Showboat on the Harbour so googled it to see what it was all about. It sounded like a nice way to... spend the evening, and it really was! We booked at the office on the wharf & the lady there was very helpful.The food was excellent with generous portions, we took the drinks package which was very good value (special offer at $30), and the serving staff were lovely. The show was fine, the singer was great and the dancers did their best in a very limited space. We asked to be seated upstairs which we liked, but from both decks you could get outside on the wraparound walkways. And that's where the magic was - Sydney from the water at night was amazing! All in all it was a great way to spend the more

We experienced the Sydney Vivid Harbour Cruise. Very satisfied with the experience and the cost.

My friend and I were walk-ins at Rock Star while on a choir trip 3 weeks ago from Oregon and got our first tattoos here!... Connor was absolutely fantastic and patient with us the entire time we were there. He had snacks and sugar on hand which was great for me when I got dizzy a few minutes into my tattoo. He designed my tattoo (native Oregon wildflowers) on the spot for me from a couple of reference photos for the type of linework I wanted and it took no time at all. His assistant (I'm so sorry I can't remember her name!) drew my friend's tattoo (ATLA symbols) while he worked and it turned out great.The building does look a bit sketchy from the outside, but the studio was very clean and welcoming. Rock Star is cash only so be sure to bring some (there is an ATM in the small shop downstairs if you forget) and remember to tip your artists! If I ever return to Hawaii, I absolutely will come back here. Highly recommend!read more

My family visited town to celebrate both our anniversary and my parents' anniversary, which falls a week apart. We chose a... dinner cruise on the Clearview to enjoy VIVID and had three separate online bookings within the family, so we were concerned about not being seated together.

The staff was attentive and helpful, and the food was excellent – they even surprised us with extra desserts for our anniversary. It was perfect!read more

After some research and shopping around, I chose Rockstar tattoo for my girlfriends first tattoo. They were super laid back,... friendly, and profetional. I never felt rushed or obligated. They took the time to find out exactly what she wanted and took her simple idea and transformed it into an amazing work of art for the same price. They really whent the extra mile and the results were far better than what we went in for. We are both planning to get our next tattoos at Rockstar more
We had a lovely experience today viewing Sydney from a completely different viewpoint on the harbour cruise. The buffet... lunch was delicious with just the right amount of variety.

We did the dinner cruise on a Friday and a lunch cruise on the Sunday- so glad we did both as they were both different but... both wonderful! Staff attentive and helpful. Food was amazing for both. I can’t recommend one over the other as they are equally terrific, just choose one that fits your plans or do what we did- BOTH!!read more

We had a fantastic time tonight. This was our second time going on this cruise and we were glad we went this time around to... show our relatives who came from overseas.The whole team were fantastic and I was very impressed they all worked together like a well oiled machine. Customer service was top notch and five star. A special thank you to Dennis and the gentleman (didn't get the name) who greeted us at the pier and was able to help us out. My tip is to get there nice and early as Sydney traffic is very unpredicable.The show was great and the food was delicious. Plenty of time and opportunity to take photos of the harbour and you get some really great shots.If you are a local or a visiting tourist this is a must to put on your list of things to do. Well done all!read more
