Friendly staff, great vibe, caters for all a beer with a mate, a drink with your partner or bring the family and let kids play and enjoy themselves too. Dog friendly is another plus.

Hi Kerry. Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry to read that are chicken nachos are not to your taste. We are a little surprised re our chicken schnitzels as they are very popular and have won awards.

Wow! What a brilliant place to have a good meal. They have daily specials for dinner and other items on the menu aren’t too expensive, but maybe higher than other places. The kids have a good area to play in and it accommodates for children...of all ages by the looks as we saw a youth group workshop with young girls there in the kids play area. The children love it. All round was good atmosphere and can only imagine what it would be like with live music. Staff are friendly and helpful, definitely recommend if you’re staying nearbyMore

Ordered the Carbonara, and calling it a bowl of slop would be a kindness to this tired old dive. Fluorescent lighting to really “set the mood”. Is nausea a mood? It is now. My wife ordered bolognaise, which was much like the ocean. That’s a...measurement of saltiness by the way. Unconsumable, and trying to do so will do your body more harm than good. If this place charged dive prices, maybe some leniency might be merited. But the prices are quite premium and the experience quite terrible. I should have taken a photo of the carbonara. Seriously. Pigs eat better.More

Hi Ben. We are sorry to read that our pub offering wasn't to your liking.

Reviewed 14 December 2020 via mobile

My husband and I were visiting the area from Sydney and were hoping for a decent meal somewhere cosy. Moonee Beach Tavern was down the road from our campsite and it reviewed well but DON'T BE FOOLED! Meals weren't cheap. It's hard to get spaghetti...bolognese wrong but it was too salty and barely edible. My husband had the carbonara which looked like slop and didn't taste much better. Ordered the garden salad as well, odd presentation but also it came with mayonnaise (?) hidden in the middle which I can't eat for dietary reasons so that was disappointing. We did not finish our meal. There is also a lack of atmosphere in the place so overall very disappointing.More

Went here twice whilst on holidays. Both times was for take away pizzas! Yummo! Fresh prawns and ingredients. We had italian chicken and pirate cove. So tastey. Do yourself a favour and try.

Came here twice during our week long stay in the area. Did online order pick up via their site, easy to navigate n pick up was hassle free. Ribs n chicken wing was yummy at good price. Food are cheaper if u order online for...pick up. Second time, we dined at the restaurant and kids enjoyed the jumping castle n basketball. Food was very generous. Kids nacho meal was great, steak sandwich was good but the meat lover pizza was a little bit too spicy for us. Overall, great family restaurant for a good enjoyable meal. Staff were friendly n helpful.More
