Went there for dinner and everything about the place seemed good but the staff were terrible. The waiter had know idea what he was doing and then when paying the staff tried to blame us for there short comings. I hope this was just a once off as it seemed to be a good place

Liked the fact that we were served water, drank some and didnt have to pay for it before we left. READ ON! Online it sounded ok, the men wanted steak for dinner. But warning: the place was cold at 645pm, no fire lit . We may not light it this evening - was the female table attendants response. The decor... More

Good tasty food, properly cooked, served in a period setting - a harkback to days of yore when drovers went in for hearty meals

We went on a very busy long weekend. The service was not bad but the food was very ordinary. I've had much better steaks at pub meals at half the price and the vegetables were also not very nice- Very plain and overcooked.

Service - friendly and fast (it was a Thursday night) Food - beef ribs perfectly cooked in plum sauce. My wife had a vegetarian dish "VOL AU VENT", it was large but she reckons it was a little bland. But there were other veg options on the menu. Ambience - relaxed Overall - one of the best meals we've had... More

I have always had reasonable food here. Never had a great meal, but never had a bad one either. If you like your wine, this is the best wine list in town hands down no question. Service has been hit and miss over the times I have been here. Last time I was here was for an anniversary with my... More

I was looking forward to this for a while as the menu looked amazing,but i wasn't overwhelmed by it! There wasn't much atmosphere in there and service left a lot to be desired. The starters weren't fresh they were just stuck in a deep fryer from frozen and the mains were a bit bland and lacked flavour, we didn't end... More

When Country is your thing, the interior of this restaurant is heaven. You can order steaks or the meat of Kangaroo, Emu and Barramundi to name a few. Excellent food, good service, nice atmosphere but als prices in the upper region. Booking ahead is advised, we were lucky.

We were there tonight with a friend, service was slow to start with but got better as the evening progressed. The meat dishes were above standard for each of us. As I am on holiday (vacation) I tend to order my favorites . After two fails this week, Overlanders has served me a medium rare steak, well rested and full... More
