“Great beer garden at lizards”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

This review is mainly for Lizards beer garden just on the side of the top end. This place is always busy of an evening. Do fantastic pizza and just a great spot to meet up with people after work in the beer garden for drinks. Good value and good atmosphere.

“Atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Lizards Bar & Grill is a great beer garden - good pub food, there are specials pretty much every night of the week, the beers are cold, staff are friendly and you avoid the madness of Mitchell St.

We meet up with friends at least once a week at Lizards.

* Our fave venue for State of Origin.

“Best beer garden in Darwin”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

The Lizards beer garden at the Top End is the best beer garden in Darwin. It is a huge space filled with beautiful shady trees, deck area and a great bar. Friday nights they have acoustic music by the awesome Josh and it is just the perfect spot for some beers and food, away from the sticky floors of the rest of Mitchell Street.

Happy hour is from 5-7 every day. Dinner specials everyday. Our favourite is Thursday night, $12.50 schnitzel with a free basic spirit. Winner!! The chicken parmy is my favourite, i'm going to say that it is the BEST PARMI IN DARWIN!

A place where you could spend many hours!

“Awesome beer garden”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

We loved the Lizard beer garden attached to this place. It was the best pub that we have been too in a very long while. We took our 9 year old and he enjoyed the atmosphere as well.

There are numerous eating/drinking deals to choose from (looks to be one theme a day) and we went on a Sunday which was $20 pizza and jug deal. Pizza was huge and tasty - as was the beer.

The staff were really laid back and offered great service and made you feel at home. There was a jukebox there - and we enjoyed chilling to the songs that we wanted to listen to.

Bottle O here is quite expensive though - we paid $34 for a darwin stubbie (2 L beer) and they were selling them at the airport for $29.

“Local Hangout”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2012

Not a bad place to have a beer, the food is overpriced and there are better places in Darwin to get lunch or dinner.
