We went here with another couple for a casual meal. The atmosphere is ok, sort of dusty hunting/fishing lodge look. The staff were rather rushed and disinterested. The food was terrible! some of the worst we have ever had. Meat was tough and leathery, chips were soggy, and cold in the middle. The salad was the only thing that was... More

Great serving size you will never go away hungry. You may want to share as the portion size is so large. You order grilled meat at the grilling kitchen and all other food in the bar. Drinks are ordered at the bar. The place was hopping. We had the daily special : Mexican schnitzel and from the grill: crocodile patty... More

We really enjoyed our dinner here Meals are massive. There are two different ordering areas depending on what you are having and a bar for drinks. It's very old English style with stuffed animals everywhere. Definitely lots to look at. Most people were unable to finish meals as so big and yummy. Recommend for sure.

This place wasnt what we expected. We found it via TripAdvisor and it seems to be a meat eaters paradise with extremely large portions. However, its not for us. My partner thought his tbone was tasteless and my parmi was overloaded with herbs. It seems very popular and was busy. The table settings and lamps look great. But we won't... More

My friend and I were looking for a nice place to have a decent dinner. We looked for some on tripadvisor and found this one. The portions are huge .The food is eatable when you are very hungry and have no other option.

Simply an outstanding experience. Friendly and helpful staff, cheap drinks and meals that are just out of this world !! Their menu is very extensive and if you can't find something to eat, you'd have to be the fussiest person alive !!! Just as an example.. their lamb shank meal is 'massive' !! '2' shanks, and a plate sky high... More

We ate here several times during our week stay in Cairns. After being given a recommendation by a local, we decided to give it a try, and after our experience decided to return several times. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The food amazing and the serving sizes were overly generous. Every meal we had we shared. The pub... More

We walked here from our hotel... The Holiday Inn... I fond it on the Internet. I was not that impressed when we walked in and when I fond out that we had to go order our food from the counter and even order our drinks form a separate counter and pay for what we bought at each counter we almost...
