Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The food here isn’t a winner by itself at all , needs the consumption of alcohol ( being tipsy ) to tolerate it or give any sort decent rating, Done a google review they took it down in a instant. Just do better simple.

Waited 40 minutes for a toasted sandwich, and a bacon and egg roll. They came out cold and looked like it had been thrown around before it was put on the plate. It wasnt even that busy at the time.Never again!!

A very relaxed atmosphere it offers a very good, well priced menu and some singing entertainment. The sports bar is very good with TAB service. It’s worth a look.

Working in the hospitality industry & having owned my own cafe/restaurant it is rare that I will leave a bad review but this is definitely one! The food & customer service in this place is dreadful. I ordered the Lizards Burger and what came out...was an absolute joke, the burger was virtually 2 over processed rissoles, with bacon & some other toppings on a burger bun barely bigger than a dinner roll, this was served with chips that tasted as though they had been cooked 3 days ago & then refreshed. I literally took 2 mouthfuls of the burger & returned it & requested a refund as it was completely inedible, my husband soldiered through his Parma. When I returned my meal I was not offered any replacement or exchanges or apologies so I’m guessing this happens frequently. The poor girl at the table next to us had ordered the vegetarian pasta & ended up with pasta with pepperoni & the extremely rude staff member told her she must have ordered the wrong thing. Do yourself a favor, just don’t go there, there are so many great places to eat in Darwin, this is not one of them!More

We ventured in this place just so to catch up on some sport. Seems to have a local following with gambling a main feature. The service was prompt and friendly. Not at all expensive and portion sizes ample. Not at all romantic but name me...a sports bar that is.More

My sister & I arrived for dinner about 7pm which seemed to be just after the rush as wasn't busy. After about 40 minutes waiting for our meal, and the people around us who ordered after us were eating, I went to inquire and was...told 'sorry 2 more minutes, as we had accident in kitchen have to remake chicken schnitzel'. That was odd as the others who were after us were eating schnitzels. Anyway, waited another 10 minutes before asking again. Same response 2 minutes. Another 10 minutes finally arrived. The schnitzel was good. However, The 'Lizards' specialty Beef burger tasted weird. I pulled it apart and found the beef patty was gooey and a bit pink, it really didn't look like meat so I didn't attempt to eat any more & returned to the counter. They didn't argue & gave me a refund, so I had no dinner. The security guard who had been clearing tables and helping out with other restaurant work, came to make sure I was looked after & my problem solved. Obviously something did happen in the kitchen that night, but had nothing to do with the schnitzels.More

Staff really friendly but the food? Absolutely atrocious! I had Greek salad with chicken and it was a big bowl of dressed lettuce, some poached chicken, slices of red onion and olives and three halved cherry tomatoes. My eight year old granddaughter could have done...a getter job! My husband ordered pork ribs, our friend wanted the slow cooked beef ribs. Sorry, no beef ribs so he settled for a schnitzel. When my husband’s pork ribs arrived they were slow cooked beef ribs! Not only were they the wrong ribs, they were served with the pork accompaniment of coleslaw and chips! So wrong. There were three ribs on the plate. The top one was soft and succulent, the second much drier and tough and the third was so dry you could not cut it! The waiter, who recommended we eat there as the new chef was amazing, was mortified and quickly gave us a refund, he was so good about it we felt bad. I noticed though that there were lots there drinking but no one was ordering food. That was a warning we should have heeded.More
