The servings here are MASSIVE! I ate until i was completely full, and it still looked like i hadnt made a dent! I was a little shocked at the price at first, but that quickly went away when i got my food. the food itself was about a 3 out of 5, it wasnt stellar but it wasnt awful. (basically... More

Servings are huge! Food is excellent but just so much of it you can't help leaving some. Recommend ordering one meal for 2 people to share.

We had lunch here and our meals ranged from $11.50 to $15 AUD. Firstly the good. The meals were nice and large and good value for money. The chips were good and the gravy was really good. However, there were a lot of negatives. The steak was really tough and hard to cut through and the garlic bread was positively... More

Quite a large pub, able to handle large groups, they offer well-prepared hearty meals with huge portions. My ceasar salad was of ridiculous size. The service is pretty standard for an Australian pub - you order and pay at the counter and go and retrieve your meal when ready. However what impressed me the most about this place - I... More

Large meals , family restaurant but also have pokies for the adults. Nice outdoor eating area too and smokers are in a special area so they don't spoil your dinner! Live music on the weekends too.

Generous size meals. Great selection of foods. You have to go up and collect your meals when your table buzzer goes off. Interesting high ceiling atmosphere with life like giant sword fish swinging off the beams. Good size deck area to the side is privately surrounded by tropical plants. You don't realise you are next to a road.

The portion was big and the steak was good. The price was reasonable for the quantity and quality of the meal. We tried the kangaroo and crocodile meat and it was good. It a great pub to chill and have a casual drink too.

The portion size really is big here (easily enough for two). Food was OK and reasonable prices considering the portion sizes

The meals are huge and satisfying, good selection of comfort food and the menu hasn't changed in the 12 years I've been coming here which is a good thing, many favourites on the menu. The service however has become pretty ordinary to the point of unfriendly. Bar staff were disinterested, the guys on the door were unfriendly. This used to... More
