Description: Denman Cellars Beer Cafe is a unique experience that will sure to please. With a great food menu and ever changing specials, pair that with the fact that you can choose from almost 400 beers and ciders from around the world that you can drink here or take away as it is not only a fantastic Cafe but a fully working bottle shop. A friendly family run business located at the Port of Airlie.

Being a local have eaten here on many occasions but the new menu really does suck. Over prices tapas which is not that great. Cider & Beer was amazing as usual and the staff were nice an friendly but the food is not worth the price tag. I don't mind spending money on good quality food but this food tasted very average.

HUGE selection of beers at all price points. It's so much more fun to pick your selection from rows in a cooler than names on a menu!

Location is easily walkable from the main part of town if that's where you're staying. It's a peaceful and relaxing location, everything the main street of Airlie Beach isn't.

Probably the best calamari I've ever had. Making a meal out of the tapas would add up quickly but for a few nibbles I think it's definitely worth the price.

A funky, grown-up venue and perfect place to veg with some exotic beers.

Soooo many different beers and wines it was so cool and the staff were very friendly. Also an amazing view looking out over the marina. My boyfriend loved it.

After being disappointed with our lunch at another popular Airlie cafe, we needed a quality dining experience to lift our spirits...
So glad we chose to try here before leaving Airlie.

Service was very attentive with our waitress offering suggestions for our drinks that were spot-on. What a great selection of drinks and great advice.
(Though not ideal asking how things are going while everyone's digging in and mouths are full but not such a bad thing and they only got that wrong once.)

Trio of dips probably the nicest my partner and I can remember having anywhere.
Wouldn't hurt to have a bigger cob of bread as we found ourselves really loading the dip on each bite to try and balance it out.

Pork belly, lovely.
Chicken croquettes, lovely (I'm gonna be trying to copy those at home).
Scallops in prosciutto, lovely.
Zucchini balls were ok, though we liked them better without the accompanying dipping sauce.
My daughter's Chicken tenderloins were (simple yes but also) very tasty.

Choccie platter was awesome, Rum ball and (Grand marnier?) Brownie were heavenly.

Cannot understand why some cafes and pizza places are ranked higher on tripadvisor - they're not in the same league.

We'd recommend Denman's to everyone, reminded us of fine dining and nice drinks down Marg River and Pemby way back home (with an arguably better view).

Thanks!
