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!

We went here on a Tuesday night and the place was pretty busy.
We ordered Herb Bread and eventually got Garlic Bread which my wife is allergic to. Thought about sending it back but couldn't be bothered with the hassle.
I had black Angus for my main and it was dry and the side salad was quite small.
My wife had the barramundi and we seriously thought someone was having a joke at our expense. The size of the barramundi serving was tiny. Really really small. Glad I hadn't ordered it!
After dinner we went to the Toad Racing. This was an entertaining show and we had a few laughs there.
I probably wouldn't eat there again. Meal for 3 (2 adults and a child) was over $100.

We dropped into this place after driving up from Cairns and in need of a quick bite to eat. The place was buzzing but we were shown to the bar and got a drink whilst we waited for a table to become available, which it did quite quickly. We ordered mains, a mixture of burgers and steaks and drinks whilst we waited. The mains arrived quite quickly considering the amount of people in the restaurant and where more than adequate, biggish portions and tasty. Two of the party had sweets and they too were tasty. The bill, when it arrived was not particularly expensive by Australian standards, especially when you included the drinks. The seating is a mixture of booths and tables. We were happy with the space we had and could talk quite happily without being overheard or hearing anybody else. The entertainment for the night was cane toad racing, one of those strange but true moments! Overall service is very good, food is very good and it would seem to be comparatively good value for money. I would go back again.

Went more for the cane toad racing than the meal. However the meals were ok. The racing is a bit of fun but the jokes a little risky at times. It was funny and something to experience once.

Recently stayed in Port Douglas and came across the Iron Bar on our travels. Stopped in for a quick meal, had the seafood risotto and partner had the lamb shanks which were both absolutely delicious. Service was friendly, fast and meals arrived promptly. Only ate there once but had a great atmosphere and would definitely eat there again.
