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.

This tavern provides inside and outside dining. Inside is decorated with tv’s and pool tables. Outside overlooks the Main Street. Drinks are quite expensive $4.50 for a lemon squash (over a glass FILLED with ice) Most other restaurants were either closed or fully booked. Tavern was a last resort before a takeaway pizza. My recommendation would be to make a reservation, otherwise you just get your standard pub meal ‘with chips and salad’

Stopped here for lunch while visiting Mission Beach. Typical pub food - steak, schnitty's, fish n' chips, etc. We were very happy with what we ordered. Staff were friendly and poured us cold drinks on what we considered to be a hot July day, so we were very appreciative. Inside there are TV's and pool tables. Seemed like a good place.

My 87 year old is now a big eater, the $26 pork chop was way too big for her. But was disappointed to find that they charge $1 for a doggie bag container. We just spent $85 on drinks and meals. I little mean to charge for a container. We are supporting business, and yet they are wanting to charge for a doggie bag container that would have cost them 5 cents. Not good form, will not be back

I ordered the fish of the day special, coral trout with stir-fried veg & rice. The fish was overcooked, no rice, and the stewed vegetables were swimming in a soup of soy sauce. The whole thing was inedible and the response from the kitchen underwhelming.

It is disappointing that you did not enjoy your fish of the Day meal as many other people who order that dish are delighted with it. Your comment of "no rice" and the "whole thing being inedible " is blown out of the water with the picture that you posted to accompany your complaint, it clearly shows what is left of your rice in the dish and absolutely no fish , meaning it has been eaten.

AVOID AT ALL COSTS IF POSSIBLE!! Myself and my family came here for dinner on 24.4.21 at 6:37pm and ordered a bottle of Riesling and as soon as we opened the bottle, all any of us could smell was a sour vinegar smell. It tasted even worse!! We are all regular Riesling drinkers and know that this is definitely not what Riesling (or any wine for that matter) should smell or taste like. The taste was absolutely sickening and undrinkable! Myself and my partner took the wine back to the bar to express our concerns and were pretty much told “it’s not our problem” and they couldn’t really care less. We came back to the table pretty disappointed and my sister in law went back up to express her concern and the staff member we spoke to named Karlie said, “haven’t you just been up here” and then proceeded to say “f&ck me” and roll her eyes as she proceeded to walk away to find a manger, Angelo, who also continued to dismiss our concerns. As someone who has previously worked in hospitality and customer service all over the world, this is absolutely unacceptable! The manger was also very unhelpful in regards to the situation and we all walked away with a very sour taste and purchased yet another bottle of wine at our cost! We were all so appalled that we were spoken to that way and never received an apology. All in all we were all very disappointed at the service we received and let’s not talk about the meals that were delivered! We will not be returning and would not recommend this place going forward.

The staff here were very friendly and helpful. There was a good variety of meals to suit all tastes. I started with the calamari and followed this up with the coral trout with stir fried vegetables. Both meals were a fair size, well cooked , tasty and very reasonably priced.

Had two dinners and one afternoon indulgence, first dinner was good, the sticky date pudding was excellent but the last meal I ordered 300gr scotch fillet med. rare cooked perfect but only 50gr of the steak was edible the rest was fat and gristle. It cost $35 so I would expect nothing to be left on the plate but not this steak most off it was left. I was offered a free drink and declined, the response was "oh well sorry about that"

We chose a noisy night to go for Dinner as there was a young Soccer Team celebrating at the Tavern that night which made the Restaurant very noisy. The menu was comprehensive and the meals were quite large, well prepared and presented. Though the Restaurant was busy, meals were delivered in a timely manner. Staff were very pleasant and efficient.

Thank you for your review and your tolerance of our noisy crowd on the night. Hope you get the chance to revisit our venue when there are less excitable soccer lads around :)

Last day in Cairns and due to fly back to Perth in the evening. We thought we'd check out Mission Beach to fill in the day before hand. We saw the Tavern was pretty busy and thought that's usually a good sign of a good place to eat. Bought a couple of drinks and sat down with menus. Wife wasn't hungry so I ordered a plain Caesar Salad no meat for myself. After waiting patiently for 40 minutes we decided they had had enough time to almost grow the salad. So we approached the cashier to ask for a refund and who informed us the meal was ready. I advised we'd run out of time, had a plane to catch and she offered a box takeaway. A bit hard to eat while driving so I declined and asked for a refund. Incidentally the couple in front of us had waited 45mins for their meal that never materialised and they also asked for a refund. Kitchen and management need to get their act together on Service! Be aware the Tavern isn't air conditioned either but it does have fans.

Had the Chicken Parmigiana,it was really yummy, very moist thick chicken and a great crunchy crumb and topping with fresh crisp salad. New York Cheescake was also yummo. Lovely friendly staff. Will definitely be back. Thank you.

We dined here for lunch on a unseasonably wet May day. Meals are generous in size. My husband had battered fish and chips which he enjoyed and I had the fish special - Moroccan mackerel which was quite dry which was a little disappointing. The beers were cold though. :)

We visited for a meal a couple of weeks ago. The food was typical bistro food with the surf and turf meal being a notch above the norm. Surprisingly as dear as you’d pay for a finer dining service .It was a huge portion with a great selection of seafood. If it’s quantity you re after here’s the place. A little rough around the edges and the interior seating area not overly attractive . We enjoyed our evening here in a beautiful part of Queensland with not too many options available .

I just came here for the dinner. Ordered 3x meals. After 30min of waiting time I did asked waitress if everything is ok with our meal. She said because is so busy your order would be delivered late. When we arrived there wasn't even half full. On the meantime I could see another customers serve before us some of them even came after us. After 45min We received our meals, my stake was hard as rubber. I have make complaints. When menager came to see me offered another meals, however I didn't want to wait so long again I asked for refund. Menager denied and said that this is my only option. I said thank you and left. I was frustrated and hungry after all. As a Cairns resident for 15 years I would definitely not recommend this place to Anyone

It is a shame that you feel the need to write a poor review as a tool of spite as a result of our staff having to request that your child didn't climb on things due to a concern for their safety. Many steak sandwiches were ordered and enjoyed on the same night as they are everyday. As to the time it took to deliver your meal, you were advised due to busyness that meals would take at least half an hour to be ready, obviously your judgment of a venue that is half full so meals shouldn't take long was wrong when half full means 150 other patrons to be fed due to the capacity of our venue. You were offered a solution of a new meal in good faith but the refusal to accept was your choice.

It's a shame we found this place towards the end of our stay in Mission Beach. The staff here a so lovely and friendly. The meals are brilliant, can't beat a good old fashion pub feed. My partner is Gluten free but loves beer so it's hard to find gluten free beer. The staff went out of their way to find a gluten free beer. That's perfect service, if we're ever in Mission Beach again, will most definitely be coming for a feed and beers. Plus the pool tables are only $1 could spend hours drinking and playing pool here
