We went here for a steak and salad. It is a cook-your-own set up, and apart from it being so hot at the BBQ, it was exactly what we needed. Good option for local meats, such as crocodile and kangaroo available

We liked the fact that we could cook and choose our own meat. Choice of Steak, Sausages, Barramundi, chicken, kangaroo etc. Self serve salad bar , bread rolls, apple crumble and custard self serve. Not too flash but good for casual dining. Communal sitting

If your looking for a bit of a party atmosphere. This was it. Had live music and loads of people / tourists all having a beer and chat. The cook your own BBQ meat is a great idea.We really enjoyed it and the salad and vegies were pretty good. Great atmosphere.

Casual outdoor setting. Camp type atmosphere. Choice of meats for purchase to do your own grilling on the large gas grills. Variety of salads on the salad bar pretty average. Eat as much as you want from salad bar. Shared picnic table eating set up. Live music.

Hello banditoo The Outback BBQ Bar is essentially setting up the atmosphere of an Aussie BBQ. Great selection of meats with the typical salad selection that Australians would have at home BBQs. Live music and great selection of drinks to finish of a long day. Regards Mauri Van Den Bosch General Manager More

What a fun night at the Pioneer BBQ and Bar! You can order your steak, you get it fresh and BBQ it yourself. The bar staff are reasonably friendly (a little odd) and the prices are usual bar prices. You can also take away wine and beer by the bottle at the 'bottle shop' too, which was handy.

Outside bar was nice...hot, but nice. Good beer selection and decent bar food. Dislike: bar staff played the music so loud you couldn't talk to your friends without shouting over the music.

Hello RaginCajungirl The Outback BBQ Bar is the main bar facility in Ayers Rock Resort. We specialise in Australian Craft beers and it is great to see you liked the selection. The music at the bar shouldn't be turned up to the volume you have indicated. I will pass this on to them to make sure it doesn't occur again.... More

A good value meal - plenty of salads and vegies (buffet) plus a dessert, all included in the price of whatever meat/sausage/fish you chose to cook on the BBQ. We were there before the entertainment started but it was a relaxed atmosphere and fine for an early family meal.
