I have only ever been here with a work group on several occasions for lunch. The menu has something for everyone, and is tasty, tender, and well presented. Meals come out all together, about 15 minutes from ordering. Make sure you book a table beforehand, as it it very popular with Mackay locals.

This is our local, walking distance from home. We have a choice of many, but this is the best. Tastefully laid out, staff are wonderful and the meals are great. Only suggestion is the steaks are always cooked more than you ask for e.g if you like medium; ask for med rare, if you like medium rare;ask for rare. We... More

We were in Mackay visiting for the weekend, and were brought here for dinner. I ordered the Lamb Shank special for $15, it was very tasty and well worth the money. Everyone enjoyed their meal. The staff were friendly and didn't have to wait long for the meals. Highly recommend!

They do a great Chicken Parmi. Excellent service and good facilities. Nothing to complain. Even a vegan meal wasn't a problem.

Six of us had dinner here tonight to celebrate my man's birthday. Five of us had steak and the overall vote was BRILLIANT! (Our 6th member loved her salad too!) I'm from Melbourne where we are spoilt for choice and I could not fault my medium-rare, eye-fillet-wrapped-in-bacon-with-pepper-sauce, served with veggies. Great value, good honest fare in an old family pub... More
