Recently drove to Emerald Springs for a weekend of exploring the local area-had heard great things about the staff and food at the roadhouse...have to say it definitely lived up to its reputation and was well worth the drive.
The food was always very nice with generous portions,amazing coffee and consistently lovely staff members who were polite,friendly and genuine in their approach to every interaction.
The accommodation is basic but clean with all necessary amenities.Would recommend to all to give this lovely place a try and you wont be disappointed...

We often travel from Katherine to Darwin and back over a weekend and we always look forward to a coffee or a beer at the Emerald Springs Roadhouse. The food is always fresh and generously proportioned, the coffee is excellent and they even have a new special deal if you bring in your own travel mug. Sitting on the deck while my 2 year old gets to charge around and play on the rocking horse is a welcome break after driving 130km and gets you ready for the next 150km leg to Darwin. The friendly service anytime of the day and night is a welcome relief from the usual customer service in the NT. Do yourself a favour next time your driving past.

Almost worth the drive from Darwin or Katherine just for the coffee! During my stay in Katherine, so many locals were raving about the Emerald Springs Roadhouse so I decided to try it out.
A peaceful, tranquil place to stop and relax for a while. What a difference some friendly, cheerful staff make! Just had a simple cheese and tomato toasted sandwich to eat and it was yummy.
Great place!
