A 5 minute walk from Airlie beach strip and a bit of calm compared to the hustle and noise. Great selection of beer and helpful staff to try and direct you to a perfect match everything from Europe to Oz in bottles and a couple local crafts on tap. Food was fine but could certainly improve - sauceless pasta and... More

This place is absolutely amazing! We had heard about it through friends but had never really stopped until we missed our ferry! What a blessing in disguise that was! After an hour there we booked accomodation in airlie and stayed for another 3 hours in this heaven! Beers from tiny countries which ended up being new favourites, Jamaican ginger beer... More

was a bit disappointing to be told the bottled beer we ordered was available on tap, after we'd poured them. Ordered the steak burger which was ok; would have been better if the rump wasn't so well done. The chips were covered in a house seasoning that rendered them inedible. Like stock powder with added salt. I mentioned it when... More

We are sorry you didn't enjoy your experience with us. Our tap beer changes continually so we often have new beers on tap, so unfortunately a mistake has happened and your server was unaware of the beer change. We will be sure to work on this in the future. I can guarantee you our house cut chips are not covered... More

Had a good night with friends here, good basic meal and plenty of drinks. Nice aspect looking over the Marina, table seating was a little haphazardous but an enjoyable night

My wife and I detoured on our journey back from Townsville to Brisbane to spend three nights in Airlie Beach and decided to visit Denmans for dinner. The first thing that impressed me was the fact that there was virtually a whole wall of fridges containing beer from all over the world, I am not a beer drinker but being... More

My partner and I enjoyed the calamari, flat bread, chicken croquettes, and the pork belly. The food was the best i have had in Airlie Beach. There are 400 deferent beers to choose from.

The staff really set the tone, friendly, upbeat and funny. Had no problems with us drinking our way through the cocktail list. Not to mention all the food we got was great. Would go back for sure and probably our favourite place in Airlie beach 👌🏽
