Menu, Too large...

This is the 3rd time we have dined here & to be honest, Menu is too big!!!! No need... Food was ok, but I think if they had a smaller menu, things would be better. Personal opinion. Has a great atmosphere, would be great in the summer.

We stayed at the campsite next door and found the whole area most depressing (it was pouring down at the time) so when we found the Cabbage Tree it was like finding an oasis in the desert! We had a very warm welcome and the service and food were excellent. We have no intentions of visiting the area again but... More

There with a group of five for dinner. Restaurant is nice. Service great & friendly. Meals were of good size, but a little variable in quality (people rated reasonable to very good). But for the pretty high price (steaks were in the $40+ range) so given three star ratings. Desserts were good.

A great place for large groups. We had a private room which suited our party of 16 guests. The food was on the table in a timely manner, well presented and delicious. The wait staff are very friendly and professional. Very good value for money. I have dined here on a number of occasions and have never been disappointed.
