    Food was really tasty. The buffet option was a win too plus the bonus dessert! Made it great value for money. Only slight downside was a little loud to be able to have a conversation with kids etc.

    We booked because of the Mariache band playing. Entertainment was excellent, service was with a smile and the meals were good value for money. I had a vegetarian dish of a standard I would not expect in a pub. We were very happy.

    When we arrived we were there before any of the other tables of 6 so I asked if we could move as it was very hot near the smoker, mark the supervisor was extremely rude & just kept saying “that’s your table” no explanation to why we could t move!

    Has a great setting and atmosphere. Music going was probably a little loud to be able to talk. Food was really yum had to wait 50 mins and then forgot one of our meals. So had to wait again. Would eat there again just for the awesome food.

    Chefs need to take care when cooking steaks as they are expensive and should be cooked to the level requested. However the manager correct the issue after the second steak was sent back. This was very good service and we were happy in the end with the food.

    Even though you have to stand in line for a while and there is a big of a wait for your order it is all worth it. The food is fantastic and they play great music to listen to while you wait. The atmosphere is great as are all the staff. Best place in Airlie Beach for great food and a fun night out.

    Out of an order of 5 meals for the table we only got 4. The order that was roast of the day was missed. We did ask for the meal, however everyone else has finished their meal, so we asked for a refund. We waited nearly an hour for our meals. Disappointing overall.

    The food and drinks are beautiful, drinks are very pricey. Service is awful. You’ll wait 45-1.5 hr just waiting in line to order food. They need to have more people behind the counter taking orders. It was bad enough that people were shouting in the lines about how ridiculous the wait was. Those servers deserve better than to have to deal with that.
