The best thing about this bar is the fact it has Australian Rules Football showing on TV. We thought the food was very average although the beer was cold. If you are interested in watching sport and not eating this is the place. Otherwise give...More

This worked well for our family. Lots of choices on offer, wide variety. Service fast and friendly. Prices reasonable. Part of the busy bar and eating area of the city. Good for a quick eat.

Stopped for lunch and had the Vietnamese egg noodles with chicken and vegetables. It was superb, I loved the flavours and the vegetables were cooked perfectly. The banana smoothie was also delicious. A very enjoyable meal for only $9.00

Good for sport. Can be hard to catch waiters attention for drinks when busy. Quite small and crowded as people go for the sports. Very warm inside and smoky. Beers 50k a glass. Had loud music on. Which was not needed due to the loud...More
