We had dinner here on our trip to Port Douglas and it was amazing! The food came out so quickly, the steak was cooked perfectly and the chicken supreme has to die for!!! So good! It was really nice to sit back and watch the sunset!

Don't over order as the serves are huge, and heaps of great pub food to choose from. Lovely ambiance, especially as you watch the sunset over the park and bay beyond. Enjoyed both meals we had there.

We were very dissapointed after recommended a visit to the Court House, susposedly a place that served good steak in Port Douglas! Firstly, they don't do table service. They expect customers to go up and Q at a little window at the side of the building in a Q and take your table number and cutlery yourself. We got over... More

What a great pub to sit back, have a drink, some food and listen to live music. A great way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

Think of Court House as a place to get food - a bistro it is not. It's huge, noisy and probably best to be on the other side of the building when the guy doing cover versions starts singing. Noise from the bar/TV flows outside. Get the picture? If you're hungry, this will work. If you want 'dining', this ain't... More
