Change your menu and your butcher the rump was the toughest I have in years and apparently it was wagyu I don't normally comment like this but when you pay top dollar ($35)for a meal and end up with a local $12 pub meal which in this case a better steak I feel it's needed. Seems Emerald has become to... More

Adjacent to the Maraboon Hotel Motel in Emerald is the Capricornia Restaurant walk in the front door and the first thing you see is that it is large a big spacious old style restaurant the second thing you will notice is the smiles on the faces of the staff and the third is the size and quality of the ribs...

My wife enjoyed the calamari appetizer so much we shared one on night two. Disappointing, they were tough and the light breading didn't stick. My veggie polenta dish on night one was... More

As others say, this is the best restaurant in town, but the quality of food is dreadful, and definitely priced for the resource industry expense account. We have eaten here frequently over the past year and at first it wasn't too bad, but recently I feel that they are simply taking advantage of the customer. An example is the dish... More
