Good food, friendly atmosphere

A cook-your-own bbq, this offered value superior to the other local establishments. We ate well at a reasonable price and the bar had a good range of drinks. Bring your room key, you need booking ID to get bar service.

Thumbs down to the man behind the bar with the sleeves rolled up that mis-poured our bundy rum and cola when the coke keg ran out and wouldnt even give us them. Mate, this is Australia!

Atmosphere was good but a really bad sewerage (?) smell meant we stayed for a few beers and gave eating a miss.

There aren't exactly a lot of options out here, but the food served here was great. I tried out their croc dog, and the kangaroo wrap, and found the food to be delicious. For those with less adventurous tastebuds, there are pizzas and hamburgers.

I took my daughter here for dinner to treat her to a true outback dinner and we loved it. The choice of a combo of emu, crocodile, kangaroo, beef and prawns was a terrific way to sample iconic Aussie fair with yummy salad. The venue is not flash and you cook your own meal but it was so much fun,... More

Loved picking out my own meat and cooking it myself! Lots of choices including kangaroo, emu, croc and prawns. The salad bar wasn't flash but it isn't a flash restaurant!

On our last morning here we decided to visit the the BBQ and Bar as it was clear this was where the backpackers would come and one of our daughters had been here 14 years before so we thought it would be worth a visit.

We enjoyed our pre dinner drinks and sunset view of the Rock here one night and a BBQ dinner the second night. The BBQ was very enjoyable and fun, large portion sizes and good value.

I travelled by myself so wanted somewhere to grab a bite to eat that was fresh and that was casual for me to sit by myself. I paid $16 for just a plate for the salad bar which included a bread roll and dessert plate. There was a decent range to pick from pasta salad, hot potatoes, noodle salad, potato... More

Hello Hpy1 The salad bar range is definitely a good value meal at $16.00, but this come as an inclusive of our meat selection for the Self Cook BBQ. Good to see you enjoyed the atmosphere and have left a review for us. Regards General Manager Outback Pioneer Hotel and Lodge More
