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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Un controlled environment Food was ordinary steak tough, tables sticky. Stayed for a few after dinner, a very drunk or high patron started smoking in bar patron area, with no management present to sort it out. Other then started vaping in bar patron area. We...then left was getting out of control. I d say this would go against liquor licenses codes of sorts.More

Nice views. We ordered a pizza to share. It came out burnt around all the edge. Told to sit outside in the gale as all tables were booked. But 3 tables not used while we ate.

We had spent the morning visiting / exploring the magnificent views of Dhilba Guuranda-Innes National Park so time for lunch. We had read the reviews on TripAdvisor which basically said "good food" and we were not disappointed. My Wife had the rump steak cooked medium...with Veg's, I had the scotch fillet steak sandwich, both were expertly cooked and good portions. View was good as we sat at the front window overlooking the Boat ramp. Staff were also very pleasant and efficient. While Marion Bay on the Yorke Peninsula is certainly not close to big towns or such, the views in the National Park are stunning and the food at the Tavern excellent quality. Fantastic start to our SA adventure.More

Holidaying in SA. Found Marion Bay right on lunch time. Great staff, great food selection. I had the garfish (special of the day). Delicious! Good chips and not too many and a really nice, dressed side salad, not an after thought. Thoroughly recommend.

This morning we wandered into the Marion Bay Tavern in the hopes that we would be able to catch an NFL game … we’re visiting from the States. Carol (or Kel) depending on who in our group you ask, gave it her best shot to...find the game, unfortunately it was not available. We stayed for coffee which lingered into a 3 hour lunch. What a great little place. Ambience, check; Service, check; Location, check; Food, check … we had the nicest time. Highly recommend… Thank you Carol and company. P.S. our Chiefs won.More

Thoroughly enjoyable visit for lunch. We had a beef parmigiana and the house burger using scotch steak. Both meals had chips & a fresh garden salad that was topped with a tasty dressing. Our meals didn't take long to prepare, were generous in size and...tasted great. The staff were very polite too. Would definitely return next trip when down the Yorke Peninsula.More

Rather a disappointing meal. We booked for our last night in Marion Bay and unfortunately the meal was very mediocre. Pizza was house special, generous amounts but not very tasty. The seafood pasta was ok but “gluggy” (stodgy). For the second time we have stayed...in Marion Bay the dessert we wanted had run out by 7.30. If the cheesecake and churros are so popular would it not be possible to make more of them? The staff were friendly, polite and helpful.More

Gets pretty busy, so good idea to book. Had pizza one night, and schnitzel the next, and both were enjoyable, and didn’t scrimp on the size of the serving. Would eat there again

Marion Bay Tavern never disappoints!! Meals come out together and so quickly. The menu offers such a variety from pub food, pizza, burgers, salads and specials. The staff are constantly on the move doing things, from wiping tables, serving and never standing around.

We had a casual dinner here on 2 nights because we were staying in the motel. It was fine, a typical pub dinner. Ambiance was a bit noisy. We had wine on both nights and it was really good. Last reservations were at 8pm.
