Owner description: An alchemy of rusty iron, sophisticated cocktails, tropical beats, hearty steaks, and hustling cane toads, the Iron Bar is a restaurant, bar and late night venue, synonymous with entertainment in Port Douglas. By day, the Iron Bar is a popular dining destination, featuring a lip smacking steakhouse menu, classic Aussie pub style eats, and all your favourite burgers, buffalo wings and BBQ ribs. After dinner, you'd be a clown not to indulge in a little bit of unique Port Douglas entertainment, with the famous cane toad racing!

The restaurant is pretty, with some outside tables for al fresco dinner, but make sure not to sit inside, it is streamy!
We had a barramundi fillet, a burger and two delicious home made Rissoles ( to taste the regional QNS dishes), but the food portion was too scarce, it is a pity, because everything is good and tasty. The staff is very pleasant and patient as we asked to explain some courses due to food intolerances.

Food was pub grub so good to average but we didn't expect more so were happy. We attended the Cane Toad Racing which was great fun (every day at 20:00 I think). It is done in a ballot so if you buy a ticket be prepared to possibly pick up and kiss a toad and if you don't win the ballot you can bid for a toad to race in the second of two races or you can pick up a toad after from the bucket and get a photo, all in all great fun and a must if going to Port Douglas!

After arriving in pt Douglas on a Sunday afternoon and trying to get a late lunch. The iron bar wasn't our first choice, but was one of the only restaurants that was serving lunch..
I ate the calamari salad which was great, no complaints and my partner had a burger. Which was not dissimilar to a burger from any other pub.
Waitresses were helpful to our questions. Attentive during and after our meal.

Food mixed from excellent (steak and calamari salad) to ordinary (marinara). A really cool pub with great decor BUT service on two occasions extremely disappointing. Seems to be run by mostly transient staff with attitudes that reflected little care and poor customer service.

We took a day trip to Port Douglas from Cairns and decided to have drinks and an early dinner here. Decor is rough with hessian covered chairs and a cane toad race to boot. That was the attraction for us, finding a back to basics bar in such a daintily-clad picture-pretty city. I was quite surprised this snuck in!The beer was cold and the pizzas came hot and fast. Tasty too. We didn't stay to watch the cane toad races which would have been fun. If you're looking for a bit of the outback in a refined classy neighbourhood this is it! Don't expect 5 stars. What you see is what you get.
