We went along with a large group to the Barbeque Night just before the Birdsville Races, expecting a great meal in an outback pub. We were sadly disappointed as the meats were all precooked and sitting in a low temperature bain marie . Nothing was sizzling when it went on your plate. Also the salads were mediocre and the veges were cold. Definitely way below the standard expected of this pub and experienced previously. Our experience would be that you visit the hotel when the meals are cooked individually and not predone. we were unaware that this was the situation until after we had prepaid.

What a fun weekend we had at the Birdsville Races and the hub of the weekend was the historic Birdsville Hotel. What an icon it is and lived up to its reputation over the weekend. They came from far and wide to be there and to add to the atmosphere. Plenty of grog and not one fight. Everyone knew how to enjoy themselves without going crazy. All should be commended and the pub staff did a great job both at the pub and at the races. Thanks Birdsville you did yourself proud.

For outback pubs this is pretty good, food is good priced and big servings. If you are planning on a stay please have dinner here. Set in the outback Birdsville hotel provides a good home made meal, steaks the size of dinosaurs, and great cold beer on tap.

Fun pub to hang out with the locals. Drink prices ok, food just above average entertainment excellent! Nice place to stop and have a cold beer. Staff can be a little stand offish, but this was probably due to the influx of people in for the races.

This is the greatest outback experience you can hope for - very different through the race week to other times of year so should try both. Best hospitality from Bens team under the guidance of Kym and Jo. Bucket list material! I know I have made it in life with my photo hanging in the wall closest the men's toilet! Priceless!
