Been here a couple times for lunch. Food is pretty good ,service is excellent. They are big on allergies here so if anyone has some i don't think it would be a problem.

We had dinner with a friend here and the menu is great for a pub. I had ribs with salad and chips, my partner had a steak and salad and so did our friend. You order at the bar, get a table number and they bring it to you. The meals were huge. Well cooked - a proper steak house.... More

Have met here on a number of Friday's for business lunches. The food is always impeccable, friendly and efficient. Plenty of room between tables for intimate or confidential discussions. Highly recommended

The food is quite nice, however you have to order at the counter which is ok. Recommended for family's with older children as the space is limited for smaller children.

This restaurant was highly recommended by a local as being the best pub food in Mackay ... unfortunately this gave us rather high expectations. Upon walking into the restaurant area it was a nice, clean inviting place. I had Chicken Wrapped in Bacon with Mushroom Sauce - Breast of chicken filled with cream cheese, onion & chives, bacon and parmesan... More
