Miss Clawdy
Giving you all week to make the most of their Independance Day specials, Miss Clawdy's is serving crab cake sliders, buffalo hot wings, banana split sundaes AND a red, white and blue cocktail that promises to be equal part Instagram-worthy and kitschy!
12 Jellicoe Street, North Wharf

Bald Eagle Diner
Hold onto your hats, this seaside American diner has an apt treat in-store for the 7/4. To celebrate the auspicious date, deluxe hamburgers (normally $13), thickshakes (normally $9.50) as well as Budweiser lager will be made available at the special price of $7.40. Rumour has it they’ll also be teaming up with an American car club for some special fun but you’ll just have to wait and see.
89 Tamaki Dr, Mission Bay

Morepork BBQ
A fine way to commemorate this special day, Ponsonby’s barbecue brisket specialists are serving up a special platter brimming with American faves - sliders, hot dogs and sauce-smothered chicken legs - alongside an all-necessary dose of kitsch - devilled eggs - and strawberry shortcake to finish. Available Saturday, Sunday and Tuesday for $32pp, with reservations available for six or more.
5/1 Jervois Rd, Herne Bay

Johnny Barr’s
Enjoy everything from seriously stacked burgers to mac 'n' cheese to sticky pork ribs, while you listen to Johnny’s stellar Red, White and Blue playlist, catch live major league baseball on the big screen and much more when the doors open from 5-8pm for this Wynyard Quarter watering hole’s Independence Day celebrations.
142 Halsey St, Wynyard Quarter

Orleans
No celebration of American independence would be complete without a trip to Orleans where a feast of cobb loaf, hot wings, hot dogs and a divine southern-style strawberry shortcake await. Their Fourth of July set menu is available for lunch or dinner at $40pp, for a minimum of two people. Be sure to book online here as this Americana extravaganza is sure to be a sellout.
48 Customs St East, Britomart

The Pie Piper
It should come as no surprise that celebrating Independance Day festivities is as easy as pie here. Allowing burgeoning pie-makers the chance to take the wheel, on the Tuesday there will be a special pie-making class so you can make your very own all-American apple pie. However, if you fancy a less labour-intensive approach, there will be all manner of delights and daily specials on offer throughout the week, ranging from pumpkin to banana cream pie, with doughnuts to match.
321 K Rd, Auckland Central

Miss Moonshine's
Nothing says "celebration" like a whole hog barbecue, and that's precisely how they like to get the party started at Miss Moonshine's. There will also be American beers on tap and servers dressed in costume, and if you dress up too, they’ll even shout you your first drink. With a special meal on July 4, combined with Miss Moonshine's second birthday on July 1, a fantastic Independence Day is definitely on the cards.
Lot 3, 130 Ponsonby Rd, Ponsonby
