“The place to be in Alice”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

Had lunch before and dinner after The Rock Tour (which I cannot find on TripAdvisor but was an awesome tour experience that I would like to give a raving review) here at The Rock Bar. Servings are huge, food is good, tried kangaroo steak and was pleasantly surprised. Live music almost every night and a vibrant night athmosphere, this seems to be the place to go in Alice. A bit slow service when they are busy, but drinks are reasonnably priced. And do The Rock Tour, everyone!

“Better than expected!”
Reviewed December 14, 2013

Was here a few times as part of the Rock Tour so they kinda suck you in to this place :) Lunch and dinner both reasonably priced and portion size is great! Very surprised by how good the fish was (given we were in the desert). Service was pretty decent but when it's busy, the bar staff would do with a few more staff/better organization.

Overall - pleasantly surprised with the place!

“Name says it all.”
Reviewed December 5, 2013

Pleasant staff, good burger, "reasonable" price (2 burgers and 2 beers - 46 AUDs), and live bands. We ate "outback" and enjoyed the night.

“Really Rocks”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

Have eaten here thrice and went on for a drink as well. The staff were very friendly and the price is affordable but the quality of food is really good especially their lunch. Safe to drink at night since their a bouncers around and the DJ was good during the night I visited.

“Cool place”
Reviewed October 23, 2013 via mobile

The food is tasty and large portions. The girls behind the bar are all characters and up for a laugh. Each night has live music but after staying in Alice springs a week, the best bands play towards the end of the week when it gets really packed. It's clearly the place to be in Alice Springs. I wish it was bigger so the dance floor wasn't as packed!
