Too expensive for what it is, much better places around it. $25 for two beers is ridiculous. Bartenders unable to pour beer... No live music

Went here on the weekend, bar staff great, food is good. Went to the DJ booth to request a song, patiently waited, was completely ignored until he asked the bouncer to "get rid of me"!! A sign saying no requests, would be great, if this...is the case! You are a DJ, not a god!! Be more professional, if you want return business!More

Great place to chill and relax with a drink or two. Live music in the early evening on Fridays and Saturdays.

Drinks are great, the salt and pepper squid is really good for a snack. Breakfast doesn’t have very good vege/gluten free options though but good if you like the normal basic brekkie stuff.

Well set out for dining outside and the food here was well worth it, especially the kilo of chicken wings night. What a tasty, big feed for $10. Loved it.

Stopped here for dinner on a Saturday night. Staff were really friendly and attentive. I ordered the oyster kilpatrick eye fillet and my partner had the rump. Both cooked to perfection. This place cooks steak better than Char Restaurant and you get better value for...money. My only criticism MORE SAUCE please!More

This bar was in the main street, great location, we sat under the beautiful big trees. They have the best ever chips and gravy, and cheap. So, so good. The drinks are good too, as well as the bands they have playing there.

Hubby and I called into the bar for a drink. The drinks were cheap. The staff were were friendly. We didn't get to try the meals. If we come back to Darwin we will definitely return to the Wisdom to try their meals.

Never had an issue with management.They did the best they could with tourists, fifo, & backpackers over long hours of trading which isn’t easy.😊
