We were doing the trip back from Katherine to Darwin in the dark, absolutely starving. We'd set off for Edith Falls around lunch time and spent hours trekking and swimming, working up quite the appetite, and assumed more places would be open on the way...back from Katherine. We arrived in Pine Creek and drove slowly around the town. Given its the Wet, most hotels and road houses were closed, and we were kicking ourselves that we probably wouldn't get a feed for another few hours. And then - just as we were ready to turn back onto the highway - we caught the fairy lights of the outdoor area, and we were off like a shot! We got a BBQ pizza and a bowl of wedges, as well as a pint each. Delicious and salty, perfect for after a big exercise. The atmosphere was lively and the staff were very friendly. I loved the music they played too. We were so grateful for the feed and will remember the place fondly from this trip.More

We were on a coach tour to Katherine Gorge and this was our evening meal stop on the way back to Darwin. We pre-ordered our meal during the day and when we arrived, staff were ready to serve us. Meals were delivered to the tables...quickly and the food was hot and delicious. I fancied a chocolate after our meal and although the restaurant did not stock them, the staff member went out to the caravan park shop to get one. Great service and very friendly.More

Mind blown… we decided to goto the restaurant after pulling in later in the day. We ordered at 6:30ish and admit we were famished by 7:15 when it came out but by god, the kids meals (Hawaiian pizza & kids steak) were absolutely fantastic, and...I wished I was a kid, till my Schnitzel came out, OMFG it was delicious and moist and the crumb was amazing. Wifey had the Parma and that was equally as good! The meal sizes were rather big. Probably the best pub meals ever!!! Prices were run of the mill for pub grub. Staff were friendly and the venue is rustic. Highly recommended coming here for a meal.More

Stopped here for a travel break, great little spot, very charismatic. Novel bar. A few pythons, named and in glass enclosures which was interesting. Didn’t get to see too much else in that local area as it is a couple of hours from Darwin. Definitely...worth a visit.More

We came to stay here by chance due to a break down on the way to our original destination, we arrived at almost 10pm when they where closing up for the night. Booking us in to a caravan site and helping us out was no...problem. As it was so late the pub/dining was finished so didn't get to experience that. The amenities block was outstanding, we have travelled vastly throughout Australian and these bathrooms are awesome and so clean. We where in a group of 6 adults and we all felt the same. The caravan park itself is nice, decent size etc. We will definitely stay here againMore

This little place just off the highway in Pine Creek is a good standard pub but with a little Aussie Outback theme going on. I always stop in on the way past for a lunch time beer and to stretch the legs.

We stopped in here during a road trip. The young man behind the bar gave us great service. Food was delicious and the “decor” was definitely iconic, lots of photo opportunities. Happy to recommend

Good friendly service. Beer was cold and the steak sandwich was delicious. Worth the stop just to look at all the unique features of the Lazy Lizard.
