The service was very slow, nearly 30mins for two meals, which meant we had to rush our dinner as we had a show at the MECC. Cash only bar. Food was very good though.

We had a work meal at this hotel on 6/7/2017. Between us we had the steak, voted the best in town, fish of the day, ( to small for the price), chicken pie and beef pie. The steak was the best meal for value. Well...More

I travel regularly to Mackay on business and if I'm not in the mood to challenge myself my default ' old faithful ' venue always the Austral. Great steaks , good value and a great selection of beers at the bar never disappoints .

I have dined here countless times over the years and I must say that this is one of few places which has maintained its excellent standards. The steaks simply cannot be faulted. Service is good, friendly and prompt.

Quick stop in with some mates, the sports bar has a great atmosphere. The bar menu was good and the food was really tasty, drinks are a decent price!

pub with a great steak & ribs. A standard pub, packed on a Friday night, that serves a good steak cooked to the way you like it & the ribs just fell off the bones. Can understand why the locals recommended it to me.

Had a nice meal here with the family. Everything you'd expect from a restaurant in a hotel. Steaks were nice in flavour and the children's meals were reasonable.
