“Rapidly became our favourite place to eat and drink”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2012

We only meant to have one meal here, but we loved the food and the atmosphere so we ended up eating here about five nights during our stay in Alice.

There are two bars, and they stock different drinks, which we found out on the first night, so if your favourite beer isn't at one, it's probably at the other which is next to the tables. Prices were reasonable.

The menu is quality pub fare, and very well cooked and presented. I particularly liked the salmon and the kangaroo, but what we both liked best was sitting out watching the sunset and the stars coming out over the dry riverbed. It was conveniently close to our accommodation, so we walked it and enjoyed it very much in perfect safety too.

“Carnivores' delight”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2012 via mobile

I have had their steak previously and it was really very good, but the kangaroo strips I tried this week were the best meat I have ever had. Juicy, tender(medium rare), great flavor, and reasonably priced. I will be back for more. Highly recommended.

“Consistently good pub-style meals”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2012

I've only eaten from the cheaper, "light meals" section of the menu. It's pub-style food, prepared to a high standard, in generous portions. You order and collect your own meals at the counter. Grills, pasta, burgers, a steak sandwich that I rate highly, a good Caesar salad and fish and chips. You get drinks at the bar. It's in the casino complex but you can enter and leave without going through the gaming area if you object to that sort of thing. You can eat indoors or out on their very pleasant deck area with views of the MacDonnell Ranges. Big screen TVs scattered throughout the complex show various live sports. It's popular - really busy on Tuesdays when there a significant discounts for members and Fridays after work.
