For the two days we've stayed in Hervey Bay, good food somehow became of an issue. We've dine out three times and for the first two we've had, it's either really blunt slash unhealthy (like the fish and chips i had) or "just okay" but (with a capital) super pricey like 150AUD for dinner.

We decided to call in after hearing good reports. I ordered the sarsparilla ribs. They were old, dry and so hard they bounced off the plate. No refund or anything offered. Very disappointing.

Great Irish pub with even better food! I had the beef & Guinness pie. It was rich & delicious. Hubby had the Marsala pork fillets & wanted to go back the next night just to have it again. We both left there with very full bellies. Would highly recommend.

As good as an Irish bar gets :-) Good ambience inside and big TVs with the races on. Sitting outside and watch the world go by.
