One of the worst places to eat in Airlie beach!!! You may as well save the money and go to McDonald's, over priced mass produced tasteless food with the rudest staff I have ever experienced. Breakfast was served cold and took forever to be made

We arrived in Airline beach without first researching Trip Advisor and took a punt due to the great location overlooking the esplanade and the water. Ordering food was a mistake. Overpriced pub food at best. Long wait for our food to arrive when it wasn't even busy. I can't say one nice thing about the food.

Good place for a drink or coffee to chill out. Even the drinks are overpriced compared to elsewhere. Staff are friendly and there is free wifi.

Thought the previous review about the baa baa burger was some whiner that wasn't aware that lamb is supposed to be pink.
She was right....Don't buy the baa baa burger not unless you want a raw lamb pattie.

Top Restaurant prices for poor food.
Food was over cooked - presentation was nice but tasted terrible
You pay a high price for the food and you have to line up to place your order

My partner and I decided to give this restaurant a go on 22 May 2014 at around 2pm as the menu looked reasonable and the staff approachable (did not read the comments here prior to venturing in). I ordered a baa baa burger and my partner ordered a fish burger. We ordered at the bar and paid for our meals. The order took approximately 20 minutes to come out. The presentation looked great except the lamb patty was raw (red and bloody) when I cut the burger in half. I sent it back to the kitchen to be cooked. A waitress came out within five minutes and said the cook was going to redo the burger with a small wait required – she offered us complimentary drinks. I ended up having to wait approximately 20 minutes (bizarre as the restaurant was not full). My partner shared his fish burger with me which tasted rather fine. When the second meal came out – it was partly raw. Despite the issue with my burger, the place had a causal atmosphere about it and the food was reasonably priced. Lesson to be learnt don’t order the baa baa burger!!!
