My partner and I drove to Airlie for the day from Mackay for lunch. We went to Denman Cellars and ordered the duck pancakes, zucchini balls and fish & chips. We had a very hard decision to make on which beer to pick!! The fridge was full of a wide selection from all over the world. Decisions.... decisions.... the food... More

Had to walk a long way in the pouring rain to go to the bathroom! I can't understand how they got a licence. I had one glass of wine for nine ($9.00). That is the most I have ever paid for a single glass of wine. The food was cold and so were the staff.

We are one of 4 restaurants in a precinct underneath a hotel. Not one of the venues has a bathroom in it, nor do most on the main strip. This is very common in Australia. Our wines are priced according to their quality as we apply the basic standard of pricing as any restaurant does. We take great pride in... More

Wandered in after a "Full-on" day out on the water & the service & meal were FANTASTIC. (Their choice of beers wasn't half bad either)

The seafood board was just awesome. The people is very friendly. The service was fast and good. The place is quite with good music and nice views, very relaxing. And they have a lot of beers from all over the world. I had a gret time with my wife in our honeymoon at this place and we definately recommend it.

My better half is an absolute fiend for beer and when we read that this place has 700+ beers, well we were locked in to go. I wasn't too excited about the food at a beer place (and I'm also not too keen about beer) but agreed to try it out, and can I just say WOW!!!!!! We were both... More

Loved the spicy granny! Just amazing. Atmosphere and staff were fabulous 😀 the concept with all the beers was great. Highly recommend a stop here especially if waiting for the sunset cruise.

We all had the Fish and Chips, which was tasty. Nothing outstanding but cooked well. The customer service was lacking. There were not many restaurants open so the place was packed, but we were seated and it took 20 minutes for someone to come by and take our drink order....never did get that refill. All in all, the dining experience... More

Some of the best food we had in Oz! Great sharing dishes, the crab and fish tacos were great as were the sweet potato wedges! Service was really friendly and laid back and Ben especially was brilliant at recommending options from the amazing selection of Aussie beers! A great set up and a great reason to head down to the...

Get the kangaroo. Tried it 3 times in Oz and this was the best by far. The portion is huge and sides/ condiments work great! Kangaroo is generally dry because of less fat but the sides make it tasty. The ancient grain salad is a top 5 salad we've ever tried. Nice views of the port and awesome beer selection.... More
