In an ideal spot on the Main Street near the seafront this is a traditional Aussie hotel Tavern serving food and drink. Very big place with ample seating both al fresco on the pavement and inside with a large back garden seated area too, Great for kids but so what spoils by the queue for food and drink ( separate)...

We have been up in Port Douglas several times and we always love to come back to the Central. The food is very good for the price we paid with choices for everyone. The large back garden is perfect and safe for the kids to run around. Really enjoyed it.

Thank you for ruining our holiday with your despicable service from your manager Todd and educing an asthma attack in my wife with your prioritized smokers area at the entrance which has caused us a trip to Mossman Hospital! Unacceptable!

Delivered was I think red meat, 25% fat, 75% so called meat. Was so tough it was barely chewable however was blue, not medium as ordered. On return to kitchen I was apologised to, however...

They fool the visitors into thinking that there is happy hour and this big prize of $3000 plus. So it's really for the locals and no chance whatsoever of winning. Being a betting man you stand a better chance of doing the lottery. Had the food there and is terrible. Sorry to be negative .
