Monday Steak Night - middle of winter and busy so you know it's a great place to eat. Terrific steak, great service from very helpful waiters and relaxing rustic environment. Lamb shanks also were great too. Will definitely be back.

We had dinner here. The food didn't seem that fresh. The burger seemed a bit old. The meat was tough and the bun was slightly stale. The parma was okay but the chicken had that grainy texture to it so I knew it wasn't the freshest. It would have been great if it was juicy as it should be. It... More

I had the Salmon with potatoe and green beans. Very nice and melted in your mouth. My dad had the sirloin steak. The salad and the chips were great but the steak was over cooked and dry. But there service was fantastic :)

Hello Jessica I thank you for using up your time to review us and Hotel. May I ask, did a team member check on you during your meal? This is a big thing for us and your Dad should have been offered a replacement steak. I am sorry if it was overcooked. Apart from this, I am pleased that you... More

Very very good steak, nice layout, friendly staff. And right on the beach. All very good for off season eating. However, this venue has a dance floor and roof top open-air area alongside the restaurant part. So in peak season it will be very noisy. Good for young people.

Stopped here for something to eat whilst in Phillip Island. Honestly, it was tasty, but inconsistent with pricing. The fish and chips was tasty. The chicken and chorizo skewers were overpriced for the amount actually on them. The chicken tenders were a little brown but not dry. Beer battered chips were good too. All food was tasty hot and fresh.... More

Ordered pizza's for delivery on a quiet Autumn Sunday night. So we weren't expecting to wait too long, as the Island isn't busy this time of year. We were told that they would be about 1/2 hr, sure no problem. Well was I wrong!! One and a bit hours later they finally arrived, only to be told that the driver... More
