    The food was quite good but the fries & Rib eye filet steak was too salty & not as tender as it should. Also when I booked 2 weeks prior I requested a nice spot to eat. As we got there they reserved a table next to a angled pole & the table was tiny so we requested a table that was twice the size & was metres away. Which they where happy to Obliged.

    Thank you for your feedback which we appreciate. We're so sorry to hear this and have looked into the issue after receiving a couple of other comments about the reservation system that night. Unfortunately, we had connection issues which caused havoc with our booking system. We are in communication with our contact at OpenTable and hopefully the issue has resolved.

    We had three generations of our family there. Everyone is catered for. Feel extremely comfortable, especially with young children being able to run around and not feel you are encroaching on anyone else's experience. Food and service is fantastic. Seniors meals are excellent. Haven't been scrimped on and they are delicious. We have been to a number of Stars Taverns, and this is by far the best.

    We ate again at Parklands and as per previous times the service and food were excellent. This time had a bit of an issue with ordering online, but this was quickly sorted out by Jeremy and then stopped for a chat after our meals and had a laugh. All 6 meals were excellent, so will be back.

    Unfortunately the food was extremely lacking at our recent visit. Mash potato had no flavour, we had our steaks mixed up 300 was medium and 200 was supposed to be well done as I’m pregnant but we got opposite. Sadly the mushroom gravy was also quite icky. We were wondering if anyone tests the food before sending it out. A bit disappointing when it’s $80 just for two main meals no drinks or appetisers

    Fist time at Parklands Tavern for our family & we were impressed by the size of the place, especially the outdoor beer garden area...its huge. It was Parmy Monday night so we all ordered various types of parmys however they weren't great...well below your average pub grub parmy meal unfortunately. The chips that it came with were average also. Service was great & ambience was fantastic, even with Trivia going on around us but the food itself, at least what we ordered was certainly below par. We will give the place another go in the hope that our meals were just a one off.

    We made a last minute booking on a Saturday evening and were really pleased by what we found when we arrived. Parklands is definitely an energetic and vibrant place to eat, the noise levels and busy-ness are definitely high so consider this when booking on a weekend. The food was outstanding and the wait time very minimal considering the volume we ordered. The staff are all very accommodating. The beer garden has great ambience and I'd always choose to sit outside where possible for more space and fresh air, as inside can be very busy, however still very pleasant.

    Chicken parmy was dry and the coleslaw was too wet and leaked into the chicken. father had chicken frenchy, over cooked fried black outside and dry. Vegetarian pizza not edible. Do you have new chef? very basic menu, not much to choose from. Parmy is a favorite, but unfortunately this was the worst I have ever had. Usually great meals from Parklands.

    As usual these days, wherever I dine, the quality of food has gone down and the prices have increased. Better off eating at home. I do understand and feel for the hospitality industry, but still expect to have a treat when eating out. Very sad indeed!
