This was our first visit to the pub, it has an amazing layout and decor. I didn’t realise that you had to go and get your veggies or salad separately and they bring you your main dish, sweets were also included. I was told that you could go back again and again! We didn’t need to as we were full. Our only complaint was that the music was a bit too loud for us trying to have a conversation at our table. But if I lived in Airlie Beach I would be a regular.

Quite overpriced pub grub.
We walked past this place a few times while in Airlie for a long weekend & it was always quite busy, so we thought it must have something going for it.
After spending a couple of hours there over dinner & drinks, I’m really not sure what the appeal is beside the aesthetic & location. The food was substandard, which made the excessive pricing somewhat painful. Beverages are overpriced for what you get compared to other venues in town. One positive, however, the courtesy bus driver was quite a character & very helpful to us.

Cannot beat the service or the quality of food. Never had a bad feed here. Would have to be one of my favourite dining places in Airlie.

A great pub, with an energetic vibe, really good live music, sport on the big screens, excellent selection across the dining and drinking menus. We ate at the pub three times while staying at the hotel over five nights. Everytime was worth it.

Food was not great. Atmosphere was great but they struggled with the people and the food suffered. Drinks prices were fair.

The food is absolutely amazing, bar staff are great at recommendations and service, the atmosphere and appearance is amazing.
The only let down we had would be not being able to get through due to crowded space and a couple of the staff not seeming interested and not willing to help.

Music was a little loud - very good but hard to hear each other. Also a bit crammed it, made it hard to get out to order drinks.

First night in on Airlie. Of course where do you go. The Pub. We are glad we did.
It was great. There were 6 of us and we all enjoyed it.
Thank you and keep up the good work.

We enjoyed our night at the pub but one issue continues to disturb us. The smoking area is immediately above the dining area, smokers sit on stools looking down on diners and not in a separate area at all. If we had been directed to one of those tables below the smokers we would have left the premises. It is probably not legal.
Drink prices for a pub are too high.

Made a booking a few days before for 7 people for 6:30pm on Saturday night. Received a call from Christian at 6:32pm (as we were walking up to the Pub) asking where we were. I said we were 20 seconds away to which he replied - good because you're table will be gone in 21 seconds! I was pretty annoyed at his attitude. We got there literally 20 seconds later to find Christian at our "tables". They had set up 2 tables of 4 separately - even though the booking was for 7 people - together. I asked Christian if we could pull them together to which he responded no. I asked why and he said we were not all from the same family. I replied that we were and he said "oh right - so you all live under the one roof do you?" I said no but we are from the same family and as far as I was aware, that should be ok. He refused to believe or accommodate us so I told him not to worry about it, we would go somewhere else. I went in to speak to the manager who seemed more interested in telling me they didn't need the fines for breaching covid rules. I certainly wasn't asking them to breach any rules. There were tables larger than ours sitting together and I had been there for lunch earlier and there was certainly an absence of concern for the covid rules at lunchtime - barely a wipe down of a table between parties and social distancing was not even a thing. When I repeated that I had booked for 7 people so I didn't understand why there was an issue sitting together, I was told that a booking doesn't necessarily guarantee a table - sorry - I thought that's exactly what a booking did??? The couple of staff I dealt with during lunch and our brief encounter for dinner were pretty rude - and Christian - well he was next level. What a bully!!

Amazing loved that they catered for the people who were there to eat and not just the football Grand Final
We could have watched it over on Hamilton Island but a great friend suggested the Pub where they only got into during half time where the big screen was
Well done
Highly recommended from all of us such a fun night 😉

The noise was quite loud, it made it hard to chat. The food was good the seafood was a bit over cooked but the oysters were fresh. The guy in the pokie room is always great!! The line up to get food was very long.

For 6.45 when familys were eating the music was so load the kids wanted to leave as soon as we got there. worst of all the smoking area is right next to the main door and next to our table where we were eating.
Food was great tho. Just disappointing experience when you are paying $44 for a main

I love your eyefilet. Can't improve that. Hope to enjoy one every week we are in home.
Salad bar still appetizing, plenty of variety.
Quality for money.
Staff are most obliging.
Drinks are expensive.
