“Good hearty food and good value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

Welcome a bit confusing, not sure if as casual dinners we were welcome initially but eventually seated. Wait staff friendly. This is not a sophisticated dining experience. But food came reasonably quickly. Basic drinks list. Reasonable range on menu and plenty of it. Well presented. For what it is, its very good. Certainly more reasonable than some other ILT establishments which are over priced.

“Great dining experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

Once again we had a great meal here, ample amount of food. Great service. This is the third time we have been here and would recommend either the dining experience or the bar meals.

“Lunch in the bar area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

Lovely building, excellent wait staff, could not fault the food, but the ambience let it down, we had a lunch in the bar area and just did not feel comfortable being right in the bar area. its a pity there is not a dining area away from the bar. Will look forward to trying a meal in the restaurant in the evening in the future.

“wouldn't hurry back”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

The meal was a bit of a let down my husbands chicken was so spicy he couldn't eat it and believe me he's not a man to leave food on his plate and i ordered a steak medium rare which came out well and truly over cooked so it wasn't even a little pink in the middle and the rest of what was on our plate was bland and under seasoned, all in all a real let down since we had heard good things about this restaurant which is why we went there in the first place . The only upside to the night were the staff they were fantastic!

“Another ILT Failure”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013 via mobile

Seems the ILT should stick to pokies and booze, because they clearly no nothing about food. 1 word, bland. Over priced and under seasoned. I won't be back.
