Went to Overlanders on our last night in Alice Springs. Great food, attentive service and a lovely atmosphere. Recommend a visit.

Great food and great place to hang out. Loved the Aussie outback feel of the place. Well worth a visit.

A place with history on the walls and delicious food with an australian flavour. A great place for overseas visitors.

The service was great from start to finish. The staff are very friendly and accommodating. The mignon I had was perfectly cooked and very tender. We all enjoyed our meals, sharing them all amongst each other. The deserts were beautiful. We really enjoyed the experience and always recommend it to visitors to Alice.

Food was overall very good. We asked if it would be possible to have a shared plate for our little one. The waiter agreed and service was fine until the bill arrived. We ended up with more than AUD 30 for one kid's menu without any side dishes. Insisting in a correction were blocked off by several staff members.

The food here was alright but a little pricey. The staff were exceptional, able to fit us in even though we were a large group with no booking. The steaks were nice and the vegetables were fine. Nothing to rave about. It has a cool theme of an outback kind of pub with a good selection of drinks.

We had to visit the famous steakhouse but I would say it was "just" ok. Nothing special really. It wasn't great, it wasn't bad.

Firstly, the Drover's blowout which doesnt seem to have a price anywhere, was $75pp. For that you get a small tasting entree with kangaroo, emu, camel and crocodile cuts about palm size, a soup, a choice of either barramundi (fish) or steak, dampa bread, and desert. We opted to order a-la-carte as slightly better value: the tasting platter (~$30), barra... More

Thank you for your insights relating to the Drovers Blowout. Firstly the price (currently $75.00 per person) can fluctuate as the choice of 'bush meats' are regularly subject to both availability and price changes - just as prices regularly change at the local supermarket. However, Kangaroo, Camel, & Buffalo meats are 'wild-caught' and 'mustering' of these animals are subject to... More

The reputation of the restaurant is more impressive than the actual quality. We were a bit afraid to order the Drovers Blowout ($75) as it seemed to be a lot of food. It is a lot, but it isn't nearly as much as it seems. After soup and bread, you get a tasting platter with your non-common meats. The crocodile... More

Thank you and congratulations for being one of a select few Australians who have had the opportunity to 'partake' in true Australian Tucker. When available, Crocodile, Camel,, Emu and Kangaroo meats all have different tastes, textures, and 'qualities'. Over many years, and like many of the world's great cuisines, our Chefs have experimented to 'bring' the most out of the... More

We went on a family trip in australia, this was one of the placas that we eat. It's too expensive, over 200$, for 4 people and the only thing that was really good was the kangoroo beef. Also doesn't haver wi-fi.
