Loved the Airlie Beach Hotel. We went on State of Origin night and on Sunday night to the acoustic guitar session. Both nights were extremely busy but the staff couldn’t have been more friendly and helpful. I requested a particular table for Origin and although there were only two of us and it was a table for four they kindly let us have it. Thought the value for money was excellent as you could go up to the buffet as many times as possible. Loved the salmon. Would definitely go back to the Pub when we are in the area again and have already recommended it to friends and family.

Very disappointed with the service from the reservation man. He was very rude and condescending. Another worker helped with our very minor issue which worked out well. Food is average, drinks are overpriced. Many other preferable options to eat and drink in Airlie Beach.

Busy hotel with bookings required. Food was very good but prices of food and alcohol were quite high for a pub. 2 mains and 2 rounds of drinks (beer & wine) with no change from $100 is closer to restaurant prices. Pizza and salt & pepper squid was delicious. Most diners including ourselves were tourists.

Queued for 20 minutes but eventually gave up as we were nowhere near the front. Can't comment on the food as we moved on. This was despite having a reservation.

Its was the place to be I was told.
Intoxicated patrons being obnoxious and rude dampen the experience.
Food was not that great and the order was wrong.
Ill explore other options in airlie next visit .
We ate out at 4 other locations during my visit they were far better food wise and at managing their patrons for the enjoyment of everyone.

Attended the venue on a friends weekend away, booked a table for the Women who Rock show.
I arrived at 11:32am and by the time I was seated was rudely told that I was 10 mins late. The rest of my party where to following me shortly.
10 mins past and I was once again told that if my guests didn’t arrive by a certain time I would lose the table - a couple of other tables were told the same thing.
I understand that people stuff venues around but when as a party you are looking at spending a substantial amount of $$ on food and drink I would expect not spoken too in that manner.
The staff member , Christian , may want to learnt to speak to patrons a little nicer if he wants them to return.
PS the show was awesome!

Meals were priced well for what I consider “pub food”
Cost of drinks on the other hand was ridiculous over priced

Best atmosphere in Airlie Beach. Awesome live music events and great outdoor area. Food is delicious, though food and drinks could be a bit cheaper. Service is always top and special thanks to host Andy for making it an incredibly special weekend for us. He looked after us very well.

The lunchtime live band music was so loud we couldn't talk across the table and as we had brought our young child to the family catch up we were forced to leave early. When we tried to speak to staff members about it we were told "its what we do every other day so bad luck"

The garlic prawn pot was awful. Trying to be too clever with huge prawns that were not fresh and not enough oil or garlic. Not eatable
