Rock bar ..very disappointed, 4:30 on a Saturday afternoon, no atmosphere a hand full of people. Person behind the bar had no personality.

Choose a table near the window for natural air conditioning. Friendly staff. Excellent choice of beers and food. Food was quick, wholesome and perfect. Had the kangaroo and loved it. Not much else in town open in the evening or quick with their service. So, recommend here. Only open until 9pm but by then everything is asleep!

Cheap eats, long happy hour but atmosphere is a little lacking compared to Monties... Selection of drinks is 'adewuate' if a little ununique...

Attended this bar twice throughout my stay in Alice Springs. The food was amazing! (well done kitchen staff!), however the customer service from one particular bar tender was appalling. We were greeted with grunts on both occasions, and when we asked regarding an event that was being held, the response was *grunt* "What do you want to know about it?"... More

We came here after our 3 day tour with rock tours and really enjoyed it. Wound. Up being a Saturday night, beer was pretty cheap, food was definitely affordable and yummy. Chicken part and steak are on point! Yum. Would recommend stopping by for sure!

Food was tasty, reasonably priced and came out in massive serves. Live entertainment was great, and the drinks specials on offer for tour groups made for a cheap night!

Can't beat the rock bar for solid pub meal and social dinner and drink. Routinely go there after work and bump into all the locals and tourists alike. The 7 days late opening licence is also welcome in a town where things close sometimes too early!

Awesome place for a bite to eat, and have some drinks! Really good fun after around 11pm for some dancing. Has a great outdoor area with plenty of tables and seating. Awesome fun on event nights like ladies nights, and like the Mexican theme night I went to - they even made tequila worm (lolly worms) jello shots!! Awesome fun!!

Thank Laurenne G
