There are several places in Port Douglas where you can get pub/club style meals – but based on our experience, the Court House is a better place for drinking than for eating. There was a long, slow-moving queue to order, and our Coral Sea Curry had lots of rice but was lacking in seafood (especially the mussels, several of which... More

A really good location, nice place to be around sunset, the food was very average though, seems to be many seafood options, but not much else if your looking for something small to eat

Nice spot to sit and watch passers by. The potatoe wedges are great! We have visited Port Douglas 3x and we always pop in for a nice cold drink and a snack!

Unfortunately there aren't too many options on the dinner menu for vegetarians. You have the choice of a few side dishes, nachos or a vegetable salad. When I asked if they could accommodate or change something that was already on the menu, the answer was a stern no (with a shake of their head). No biggy, but just something to... More

This beautiful old pub is located on the corner of Port's main street, near the seafront. Views from upstairs are lovely. It tends to get very busy. Our meal was lovely but the wait is significant, not only to be served but also for the meal to be cooked. The staff clearly do their best though. The meals are not... More

Happy Hour is great not to be missed. A band plays most nights with really enjoyable music too. Food is available reasonable prices for reasonable food.

Lovely location but the food here is pub grub at best. We had grilled barramundi which was passable but had no love at all. Very much a steak and chips sort of option but great vista over the park to the water
