An alchemy of rusty iron, sophisticated cocktails, tropical beats, hearty steaks, and hustling cane toads, the Iron Bar is a restaurant, bar and late night venue, synonymous with entertainment in Port Douglas. By day, the Iron Bar is a popular dining destination, featuring a lip smacking steakhouse menu, classic Aussie pub style eats, and all your favourite burgers, buffalo wings and BBQ ribs. After dinner, you'd be a clown not to indulge in a little bit of unique Port Douglas entertainment, with the famous cane toad racing!

Stopped by after dinner a few nights. Enjoyed cold beers and pokies with my mate. It really picked up after 11:30. I’ll be back if I make it back to PD.

A delicious steak cooked just the way I like it. Good crispy fries too, with a yummy salad dressing.

A quaint restaurant which is good value for money. There is a choice of a steak or barramundi meal for the early bird special. We chose the steak which was very nicely presented, tender and delicious.

The cane toad show is unashamedly politically incorrect, as you will see from the colourful reviews on our website. We're afraid that no creature, no creed, no colour, no preference for anything at all, is immune from the wit and wrath of our cane toad...More
