“Great Ribs, Poor Steak”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2013

Went for lunch as menu looked devine. Entree's: Garlic Prawns were pretty ordinary - seemed to be prawns dumped on dry rice with sauce poured over top. However, Calamari was very nice and an extremely generous serving. Mains: Mixed Ribs were unbelievably tender and tasty!! Surf & Turf - 2 prawns on top of a steak. Steak was perfectly cooked but unfortunately very very BLAND and CHEWY. Have had better steak from the local supermarket. And meal should have automatically included salad/veg with fries. Instead just got a really big plate that was filled up with fries!?!
Service was fine as there were only a few diners. Would definitely go back, but only for the Ribs!

“Great Choice!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013

Even though it was raining like crazy-the meals we all got were divine!!! Arriving from Melbourne I was surprised this restaurant was not that busy....anyway sevice was great with one of the waitresses running up the street for ice cream when they discovered they had run out!! A little pricey but we were on holidays so who cares!! 2 x chocolate desserts we all shared were soooo yummy - my daughter who has moved up there will be back with her boyfriend & his father said he would be back also so if you get a chance to pop in for some ribs or rump go for it & enjoy!!

“Worst service we have ever had at a restaurant in a lifetime to go With tough in edible steak”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013 via mobile

Service there was none. Staff more
Interested in their phones than service. Food was expensive and very ordinary. You order a steak for $35 them have to pay extra for sauce them extra for salad and veges. That is ok if you are getting a great steak but when you receive a steak that is not possible to eat as you chew through the Grissel it is frustrating. Staff do not serve you. You have to chase them to even get a fork. They took our order then never came back for the rest of the visit. One drink and non offer for Desert. They packed
Up tables in the middle of our meal at 8 pm at night when they are still open for ours. They food was crap. The service was the worst I have had in Mackay and that is saying something.

“Worth a try”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2013

While very expensive, they seen to have finally learned how to cook steak.
The food was quick to come out and look the part. My boss adored the ribs, I didn't hate my meal. However for $40 you would expect to have both chips and Veg, not one or the other?
