“Great steak but thats it”

The Deck Steakhouse
Ranked #41 of 204 Restaurants in Mackay
Cuisines: Steakhouse
Restaurant details
Reviewed August 21, 2012

This restaurant shows the arrogance of Mackay restaurant owners. Very expensive but high quality steak, that it is served on a standard salad, that you collect your self and eat and a cafe table. If you are unfortunate enough to go when a band is on next door or after a 'sunday session' it is VERY noisy and smoky. Saying that though I love the decor of the bar and chickens and a great view of the marina.

If you like a good steak, the Deck is the place to go. The chef is consistently amazing. The steaks are tender, perfectly cooked and great value for money.
Then there is the brilliant setting at the marina.
Our first choice every time.

The service is a bit of a let down, considering the area that it's located in. Views on the marina are beautiful and the steak is well cooked, if a bit on the expensive side. My partner had the pork spare ribs and they were so over cooked that the bones just crumbled. They serve garden salad and a baked potato with sour cream and bacon. I would have preferred chips. It's not really a pub grub kinda place but nice.

The food here is always great, the steak is always yum, it does remind me a little of the Breakfast Creek hotel, the is the only good thing I am going to say. The staff here would have to be the rudest I have ever encounted, my advice is if you do not want to work here move on.

4 of us had a business lunch here and the steaks and cold beer were great. You probably do pay a bit extra for the view and location. However, by Melbourne standards the prices are very cheap, the 4 of us had big steaks and a few beers each for about $140. In Melbourne the same thing would have been $180 to $200. Locals reckon the Austral Pub in Victoria St in town does steaks just as good, but cheaper, and without the view.
