Although this offers all the salad you can eat when you buy a steak or meat to BBQ, the quality of the salad bar was not very good. On the other hand,there is one [soggy] dessert option and overall it fills you up!

it was good food we ate at the pizza place one night and at the bbq place the other night. You cook your own steak and veggies. So neat!

The food from the cafe was appalling and as we have bbq's a lot at home we didn't want to pay so much. The live music was good though.

Great atmosphere for budget outdoor dining. I like the feel of corrugated claddings and awnings with wrap around timber posts to give the pretence of an outback station pub. Nothing beats a cold beer served on a blistering hot day.

We took the Outback Combo really wanting to try the Emu and Corcodile meat. ($28/person). The salads were ok, the skewers as well but I really didn't like the sausages that had too much of a strong taste for me. I must say that I am very picky on meat. The live music and fresh cheap beers on tap ($6... More

This place had been recommended to us by friends. The food looked good but we did not feel like cooking our own so we decided to enjoy and beer and the live music.

This area looks a little rough at first glance with long tables and benches. We had burgers from the restaurant and they were first class. My husband says the beer was good too. We ate at 7.00pm

Hello Mfanwy The BBQ Bar look is fashioned to be of an authentic Outback style bar. This is somewhat rustic, and is complimented with some value dining options and a great beer selection. Regards General Manager Outback Pioneer Hotel and Lodge More
