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.

All the staff were very welcoming and helpful. Food was quick and yummy pub meals. The crumbed lamb cutlet special was great. Nice views of the ocean and cool breeze sitting on the balcony out the back. Would be great in whale season.

Hi Mickakow, thanks for the awesome review!

Reviewed 2 January 2024 via mobile

We visited twice before New Years Eve for lunch and dinner, I really wish I could rate it 5 for some of the wonder staff, Shell and Lisa you guys are definitely a five ⭐️.. the other 2 that couldn’t care about anyone or anything...going on around them aren’t worth a star was Dave and Kalia you let the place down, we lined for 10 minutes while these two stood at a computer and didn’t even acknowledge us. Before Shell served us and apologised for the wait, they were standing right beside her. The meal was amazing definitely 5 stars. Dinner time same thing happened but Kalia walked away as we got to the counter and went to the bar to talk. We were saved by Stephen this time. Shell was there through dinner service and she is great had everything under control, taking in completely in her stride, Bar staff were amazing all 5 stars in our eyes, Gavin, Christine and Tom. We have been to the Great Southern so many times over the years, we were shocked to hear that Phil had left he was amazing, and what pub has no beer over the Christmas season, some terrible staffing issues going on there, The pub has changed hopefully not for the worse.More

Amazing! From the service to the food this place was amazing! We were served by Shell what a little fire cracker, she had the whole restaurant laughing and enjoying themselves, even people going into the pokies were so grateful to her! Calling her legend! She...was run off her feet (2 other staff members just standing at the computer) but she took it her stride and did her thing! Thanks so much you definitely live up to your name of legend! Hopefully return soon and you’re still there!More

Just had dinner here. The grilled fish was a piece of salmon. Quite nice though the sauce was rather gluggy. Also had prawns & chorizo which was just delicious! Just enough heat in it. Good family vibe here. Lovely deck outside facing the ocean.

It was exceptionally busy at the bistro when we visited and there was a sign and staff did advise of 45 min wait times on food. Unfortunately staff were also lacking in cleaning tables. Ended up clearing a table and cleaning down the table ourselves...for us to be able to sit down at a clean table. Ordered the steak and grilled barramundi, which was the fish of the day. The steak was cooked perfectly and melted in your mouth and the fish was also cooked well. However, the vegetables with the fish consisted of two small pieces of carrot and 4 beans with some cauliflower and with the steak also scraps of carrots. We complained and requested more vegetables but unfortunately we finished our meals and left the bistro before they arrived at the table. Will not return here and we have been turned off pub meals from this experience.More

Terrible waiting time and terrible service as my partner asked a waiter who has gray and black hair with golden earrings to clean the table and she gave my partner the worse attitude and told us to wait for a hour just because it’s busy,...I was like excuse me I’m just here for damn lunch. I always come here for my holiday from Victoria and never had that problem before until now.More

From the friendly greeting as we walked in to the farewell as we left, we were impressed. The service was wonderful and food standard way above normal pub fare. The veal schnitzel automatically came with lemon, you didn’t need to ask for it, which is...extremely rare. The other meals were all delicious, large servings and very fresh. Highly recommend visiting this lovely pub.More

This place had a good write up ,so thought we would go for a nice pub meal. Food was good and large services, Ambience was average, more like a club or RSL, may have been better in the front bar. We were in the seated...restaurant section at the back which was right next to a pokie room, where there was some. sort of party going on and people constantly yelling. Not the place to go for a romantic dinner for two to finish a mini break.More
