Food is good and reasonably priced if you can’t be stuffed cooking or if you want something quick. Been a few times but the menu gets a bit boring after a while

Thanks for your review Gollygosh7777... we have just refreshed our bistro menu in recent weeks and looking at doing our bar menu very soon so this should give you some more variety.

Ordered the $35 porter house. Worst steak. Over cooked, hard, chewy. I cook better steaks at home. It didn’t look great on the plate. Just a lump of meat with chips scattered to one side. No salad or anything. Tasted really bland, like nursing home...food and no wear near what a $35 steak should taste. Service was good, staff are friendly and work fast. Sorry I won’t be going back.More

I was hoping for a decent beer but aherns so called Irish bar as part of the highways tavern only had 3 very ordibaty local beers. The food was atrocious, the staff were rude and the over all experience was do far from satisfactory that...I am amazed they are able to turn a profit. I imagine it is only the pokie machines that keep the doors open. Enjoy stealing f o. The underprivileged, what a terrible venue.More

The lamb shanks, 2 for main meal or 1 for Seniors are cooked to perfection! So tender and tasty. Chef knows how to cook calamari too! Staff are friendly and pleasant. Ideal with children too as they have a great playground.

This place is crap. 45 minutes waiting for 2 cocktails is just terrible. I wouldn’t bother coming and we won’t be coming back.

A friend and I stopped her for drinks today after going to the Leisurefest nearby... it was a delightful place to enjoy time chatting to one another. The booths were intimate and gave us time to enjoy one anothers company. This establishment is quite large,...we walked through a large gaming room that was very busy to find the bar and we left passing a smoking area. If you want somewhere to enjoy time in the middle of the afternoon... this place is for you. The tables weren't cleared in a timely manner, but I just moved the glasses off the table I wanted. I actually looked through all of their booths and all of them had not been cleared even though at the time... no-one was using one. There is plenty of parking and it's an easy location to find.More
