Alex, the man who served us was so friendly and gives the place a great atmosphere! He alone would bring me back.

We visited here 20 years ago and everything has changed except for the buildings which should've changed or at least up kept. One largish bar lady gave horrendously bad service to international tourists and was so surly she could curdle a soy cappuccino! Put us off completely so we decided to have dinner elsewhere. Very disappointing because when we were... More

As we were at Uluru throughout the Xmas 2016 period, when it flooded, as all tours etc cancelled. We caught the resort bus around the resort & went to the pioneer bar for a bit of fun and relaxation. A lot of younger people there, so it was good to talk & interact, with a different demographic of people -... More

While the food was overpriced and not that great, the experience of cooking on the "barby" in the Australian Outback is a fun bragging right. The bar was only allowing one drink per person per day and required your room number to even order. While those are not necessarily bad policies, the delivery of the news was delivered rudely.

Went with the intention of having a drink and light lunch.

The whole of Yulara is expensive anyway! Great service, prompt and friendly. Pizza was good too, plenty of toppings. Ate here a few times, recommended for a quick eat.

Its just a pub with pub food, it's good, you buy uncooked meat (chicken, steak, crocodile, kangaroo, prawns) cook it yourself and add salad. Not fancy just a relaxed place, with people from all over the world, nice atmosphere. The prawns were tiny for Australian prawns.

We spent a few nights at the bar and always had a good time. The drinks were cheap and the live music was fantastic. All the locals and tourists mingled together it was a fun night out for all.

The area was well attended and checked by staff. As it is a cook your own one can not criticise the chef !

If you are tired of shelling out lots of money and just want to grab a beer and burger, this is your place. Nothing to rave about, just good honest food at a decent price.
