“Surprised!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

Didn't realise it was 2 for 1 night on Tuesdays.
We had 2 rib eyes and a sirloin for $33.50 with the salad bar. Couldn't believe it. The quality of the steak was surprisingly good, too. Not the kind you'd expect to see at any other pub that advertises $12 steaks. 14 year old daughter was really getting into the salad bar as well. I know we're going back again soon. Only downside was that there can be long wait times to be served and it's not easy getting a table inside.

“A good pub meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

Close to where I was staying, good food and reasonable price. Only problems were that we were there at peak time and it was a bit noisy; plus wine by the glass options were almost non-existent.

“Great value and good atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

Really enjoyed our meal here. Yes - if we chose steak, we cooked it ourselves - but that was novel for friends with us. So cheap too if you do decide to cook your own. Lots of choice if we didn't want to cook. I ate off menu. Meals were delicious and fast. It was warm outside so we sat in beer garden. Heaters were available out there too. Nice crowd. Good atmosphere.

“Not my favorite pub meal!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

Recently went here for dinner with friends, I didn't realize that the cook your own steak concept existed. I was actually hanging out for a steak but when I go out for dinner I don't expect to cook it as well. My meal was okay, not in any hurry to race back there.
