We went on a weeknight, Wednesday i think it was and the place was very busy. I dont like packed restaurants because usually the food takes ages, but we ordered our food and had to sit outside as they had no indoor tables. This was fine as it was a nice night. Whole place had a nice atmosphere.
I took our 3 kids for a walk through the nice gardens just across the road, we even found a kids playground 60m or so away which they had a lot of fun at. By the time we had walked back to our table the food was there waiting for us, took 15 mins or so which was very impressive.
Food was great, kids wedges and chips were huge servings and so were our meals. The salad bar was well stocked and everything was hot and salads were varied. Even had unlimited sauce for the chips :)
We were going to have desert but everyone was too full. We will go back again, definitely.

Last night of our holidays. Been out a few times so thought some good old pub food would be ok. Mistake. Food was the same price as many of the resturants we went to. It cost $15 for 1 beer and 2 softdrinks. Asked for kids meal to come out same time, it didnt. My $23 steak (cheapest they had) was raw and cold in the middle quite a bit. The pepper sauce was just standard roast gravey with a shake of table pepper in it. I think they browned the outside 2mm and that was it. Sons $8 nuggets was 5 nuggets straight out of the ingams box. Wifes pie was cold. The salad vege bar the roasted food was undercooked.
Give this a huge miss and go to the whistle stop resturant around the corner.

Called in for a quick meal on the way to Port Elliot on Melbourne Cup Eve. The Dining area was very busy with a Social Club function but staff found us a table for 2. Whilst the Menu was what I call " typical Pub food " the selection was great and was supported by a good salad and vegetable selection. Well worth the stop.!!!!! ps. well priced wine by the glass.

Went for lunch as we hadn't been for a while ... Poor selection of vegetables slathered with thick layer of cheese in warmers .... Vegetables were at best, luke warm and we arrived at the beginning of service when you would have thought they were hottest. Uninspiring .... When main meal did arrive it was also only just warm. We have had some lovely pub meals in the area so we're disappointed.

We were visiting Goolwa, and spending a week at the timeshare resort. After a long drive from Melbourne, the last thing I felt like doing was cook dinner. This menu was huge with a great self Steve salad & veggie bar. Big serves! By BF Loved his chicken Parma
