The Rocky Glen has recently changed their menu so we decided to check it out. They seem to have gone back to the basic tavern type menu. but the food is still tasty and well prepared. The service is reasonably fast considering how busy they were. I had the vegetarian lasagna, in which eggplant featured strongly. The texture was great... More

One of my favourite restaurants in Gladstone. Love the open salad bar they offer for all the diners. Very reasonable price and good food. $15 to have a tummy filling yummy rump steak with chips and salad and a nice cold mug of beer. Family friendly!

Stayed here for a week and although the room and furnishings are a little tired the food and service was of excellent standard the room was spotless and our hosts couldn't do enough for me and the boys will stay here next time we are in Gladstone

Those people who come in here for a main meal and skip the entrées should try the tempura prawns. They were delicious and cooked to perfection. This is one of my favourite dishes. I was a bit sceptical about the maple syrup dip, but it worked like a charm. A nice fusion idea. Absolutely delicious. This is now my favourite... More

We usually come to RGs once a fortnight, meals are delicious and extremely budget friendly! The wait time also isnt very long considering they are always pretty busy.

Meals range from $18-25 per person, we spent around $75 for 4 of us, drinks can be pricey however they are everywhere these days. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Salad bar had a nice range of foods available perfect for fussy eaters, hot tip is definitely the noodles there!, will definitely come back again if passing through.

The hotel has an indoor and outdoor dining area. The outdoor area is preferable - the indoor area resembles a cafeteria with its tiled floor and cheap furniture. It is also incredibly noisy. No ambience or atmosphere to speak of. The food is average pub fare and servings were on the larger side.
