Good bar food

Its basic bar food but good and large portions. The staff in the bar were certainly the friendliest on site and its a great place to sit outside and eat. Tables could be cleared a bit quicker to keep birds away. Wine is expensive for what you get but beer prices were okay. Just needs a bit of... read more

Had a meal in the bar while staying at the resort. Happy hour between 430 and 530 pm took the sting out of the wine list costs. Glasses of decent wine around $10 normally. The food was pub grub and ok but what made the experience good was the bar man who was fun and naturally entertaining. Ate on the... More

Unfortunately it only opened at 4pm during our visit and with the dining room only open for breakfast at this time of the year Poddy Dodgers Bar and Bistro was the only place to go. The food is not expensive and quite tasty, with a limited menu, probably because of the time of year. The Irish lass doing most of... More

Restaurant closed due to time of year so lunch and dinner in Poddys. Typical bar food menu. All meals well cooked, fresh and served in good time by very friendly bar staff. Great breakfasts in Ikara tent.

Sat out on the verandah, under the river red gum, with the cockatoos squawking over head, watching the kangaroos nibble at the grass, which is all lovely. Food is of the parma and chips, or steak and chips variety. Asked for a medium rare steak and got a medium rare steak.

What a fantastic experience. Steak was the best we have experienced and the salads were super fresh and wide variety. Staff were very firendly and efficient and my wife and I would not hesitate to return when in the Flinders Ranges next time.

Not much around so your pretty stuck when staying at Wilpena Pound Resort for places to eat. Having said that and looking beyond the pricey bar menu the food is good, portions massive (good after a days hiking) and the staff extremely friendly.

The Bistro is the alternative to the Resort Restaurant, the menu offers simple meals, beer and wine. The service was great and coffee excellent.
