Anything that could go wrong did. No apology from waitstaff although the person serving the bar was lovely. Where food is normally plentiful, food servings on this occasion were small. One meal was overcooked, but after waiting 45 mins for entrees and then another 30mins...for main we just wanted to leave. Very disappointed in this visit, where as in the past have been very pleased.More

This place doesn’t look like much from the outside but the inside is a relaxed Aussie pub with a hell of a kitchen! We came here for a Mother’s Day lunch and we were not disappointed! The T-Bones are the best we’ve had in years!...And the pepper sauce is to die for. Schnitzel was lush as well. For families: the kids meals are on the larger scale and all of our kids were able to share plates between themselves. An absolute bargain for $8. They had dessert deals for Mums - Cheesecake and a glass of wine for $8! We couldn’t say no to this deal. The cheesecakes were beautiful! Do not go past this place without dropping in! We will definitely be dropping in on our way to Brisbane in the future. An absolute gem of a place. And the staff were relaxed, made correct recommendations (yummy t-bones) and lovely.More

Wow! the food was so good, and the prices were equally good. This is a popular pub and it is not hard to see why.

We were all looking forward to having a meal together at the Rathdowney Pub to celebrate New Years Eve, after seeing the ownership details and the continued advertising how great it was starting to be, supporting a local business is inherent to living in a...small community. Devastated by the attitude of staff and the absurd menu, was made worse by the cook saying to our group she wasn’t working after 10 o’clock. Spoke to owner about the menu and he passed the buck.More

It’s certainly not ritzy but this country pub on the scenic rim has an old world feel about it. Had the burger and pot special for $15 and was one of my he best pub mergers I’ve had in a while. Beer garden feels like...your in a relatives back yard but it works for this pub. Definitely worth a stop for a day trip adventure.More

Went to the Rathy pub last month when I was on leave. Just like last time the food was disappointing and the service slow as the only person behind the bar was serving beverages and taking food orders. The meals were small and not great...quality, wont be backMore

We were staying nearby with our kids and some family/friends, so we decided to drive into Rahtdowney for lunch. We were four adults and two kids. And with starters, we just hit $100 bill for lunch for some really amazing food. Personally I've opted for...the pan-fried salmon on a bed of sweet potato mash and greens and wasn't disappointed. See photo. Kids' options were also good, not as good as adult meals, but great for kids. Next time we'll stick to the starters for the kids though. Highly recommended. We also had a honeyeater bird keep us company, and even though it was a bit busy, it wasn't crowded or we didn't wait long for our food.More

Nice little country pub. Meals were your average pub meals, steaks, burgers, seafood basket etc. I had a burger which was good, hubby had a medium done steak which was more well done but still a nice meal. Country music playing in the background. Nice...garden bar. No aircon so it was pretty hot inside even with all the doors and windows open. A lot of bikes pulling up for a quick drink before heading off again.More

On our day out to the Scenic Rim we stopped for lunch at this great country pub. The service was excellent & very helpful with choosing from the menu. Steaks were large & cooked perfectly as was the beer battered flathead & chips. And we...couldn’t believe a bottle of semillon sauvignon blanc was only $15!! Such great value. If you haven’t been go out there & support the country locals.More
