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.

4 of us ate here whilst on holiday from the UK. We all had the Aussie Wagu fillet. The steaks were great, perfectly cooked, really tasty. nice sauces and accompaniments, the sides were great and the waitress was really helpful with ordering. Don’t tip very...often but the 2 girls that served us were both really good so we did. Overall a really good meal, felt expensive but that’s compared to the UK and the pound is poor right now .More

The best steaks we have had in Australia to date and not expensive for the quality and cut. We had the signature eye fillets and they were delicious- highly recommended for steak lovers.

YUM !!! Great service and steak to die for. Incredibly tender and the sauce and sides were awesome. When we are in Port Douglas this restaurant is a must for us (often more than once or twice too)

What is a very good steak restaurant during the day where they are happy for you to spend $80.00 on steak without proving who you are, turns into an over powering security check point where they happily deliver physical force to reject previous dinner guests...who now try to re-enter without carrying photographic ID. Not the place to visit in Port Douglas 😕More

Don’t waste your time steaks are overpriced $82 for a supposed 600 gram t-bone and a pathetic little Yorkshire pudding as big as a walnut they should be ashamed to present such a pathetic meal to someone they are just out to rip people off...not serve good value mealsMore

Very disappointed with our visit. We weren't very hungry so decided to have a couple of entrees. We were shown a seat outside and our order was taken. I ordered the chicken wings and the wife ordered the calamari. Both meals came out quickly. Unfortunately...both meals were only luke warm and my blue cheese dressing was the consistency of milk. Wehen paying we expressed our dissatisfaction to our waitress. She said sorry and would wr like to leave a tip. WTF!!! Very disappointing and now very hesitant to go back for a steak.More

We were drawn by the aged TBones in the window and they didn’t disappoint, but everything else did. The szechuan calamari had no hint of szechuan and the steak fries had no rosemary to taste. We did mention our concerns to the staff but the...kitchen were non plused. Disappointed we were.More

my family and I came In for 2 dozen oysters kilpatric and we waited over an hour and a half as we watched everyone else get served and we asked staff over and over about our meals, we hit a point where we didn't want...to wait anymore & the staff owner told us he was doing the best that he can. He didn't give a crap. He treated us like trash and spoke to my mum and I like crap. I will be giving your restaurant a 1/10 and telling all of my friends. No one deserves to be spoken too like he did to my family. I am disgusted and will never ever visit your restaurant again.More

Other than the staff being friendly, the whole place was a bit of a let down. Steak was average tasting & ridiculously overpriced - if you truly love a good steak and consider yourself handy on a bbq just stick to dinner at home. You...will be dissatisfied here. Oysters may have been the smallest I’ve seen which is disappointing considering the coastal location. Kirkpatrick sauce was so overpowering if I hadn’t double checked there actually was an oyster in there, it may not have been apparent.More

Really disappointed. Overpriced, poorly managed. Manager very arrogant. Food was not what was advertised. Dry aged scotch fillet- you could do just as well going to Coles or Wollies😔

Visited for dinner. From outside looks like a pub but the menu and quality of food far exceeds 'pub food'. Good value too.
