An alchemy of rusty iron, sophisticated cocktails, tropical beats, hearty steaks, and hustling cane toads, the Iron Bar is a restaurant, bar and late night venue, synonymous with entertainment in Port Douglas. By day, the Iron Bar is a popular dining destination, featuring a lip smacking steakhouse menu, classic Aussie pub style eats, and all your favourite burgers, buffalo wings and BBQ ribs. After dinner, you'd be a clown not to indulge in a little bit of unique Port Douglas entertainment, with the famous cane toad racing! Later, the Iron Bar transforms as the epic epicentre of nightlife in Port Douglas. Choose your groove, in two levels of indoor and outdoor space, with the perfect balance of busy dance floors, quiet corners, easily accessible bar, and street space. Our dance floors play host to a mix of live and spun music while the eclectic mix of locals, visitors, royalty, backpackers, American Presidents, wedding parties, sports teams and cane toads brings an unpretentious classic Aussie atmosphere where everybody is welcome, everybody is friendly and everybody will dance! You can't say you've truly been to Port Douglas if you haven't been to the Iron Bar.

Sat outside, energetic atmosphere, service was brilliant. Steak was also brilliant as were the healthy serving of vegetables. Overall, excellent meal. Join in and watch the cane toad racing at $5 a head. Heaps, really heaps of fun and energy at this show!

Food was very reasonably priced and tasted great too. We also enjoyed the cane toad races after dinner. The guy who ran it was hilarious catering for both kids and adults!

Very rare for us to in a pub. I think the crumbed Baramundi was frozen.... little to no taste. I am so sick of asking for salad and getting mostly rocket lettuce. Quick cheap and nasty food. Sorry but for us so dissaponting

I assume you mean "rare to dine"....While we make no pretensions about our hearty pub style fare, we understand it may not be to everybody's liking or expectations. We trust you found an alternate venue to suit your preferences better.

Hubby and I had a nice night at Ironbar. He ordered the prawn linguini and I had the pork belly. We felt the food and wine were a little overpriced for the quality however the staff and atmosphere was great.
