Everyone goes to the Tavern to enjoy the sunset over water (a bit unusual in Australia). Buy a drink and enjoy the sunset but don't stay for dinner unless you are happy with very average pub fare. Hubby enjoyed is 1/2kg rump with chips and gravy. My prawn bucket had 12 fresh cooked prawns but for $30 each a bit steep - same at the Karumba Hotel Motel was $25 for the steak and $20 for prawn bucket.
The beach is huge and you don't have to go to the Tavern to enjoy the sunset. Every other night we just took our drinks and nibbles up the beach to a private spot and enjoyed the view for free and in private.
