For a place that advertises itself as a steak house they sure struggled with cooking a steak. My partner had to send her steak back not once but twice - first time it was too well done, second time too rare. By that time I'd...More

Had a great Friday and Saturday night out in Port Douglas. Amazing acoustic duo (Montana from the Gold Coast) had the place rocking until 2am. Great atmosphere and a rockin crowd. Food was very good quality pub food and drinks at pub prices.
