The Steak was good, but lacked anything else on the plate for the price. The service was excellent to the point it was over service and very annoying when different waiters kept asking if you wanted a drink or if you needed your water topped up. I think they must have had some cancellations and had extra staff on duty?... More

Nice steak but disappointed with the salad, just rocket and carrot, $114.00 for 2 steaks and 2 beers, not great value, very limited menu.

Thank you for your review. We are surprised by your comment that our menu is limited, we specialise in steak and seafood and usually get comments that we have given customers too many decisions. Our salad has Rocket, Semi Dried Tomato, Capsicum, Snow Peas and Fetta. The garnish is carrot, capsicum and shallots. So was disappointed that you think our... More

While Rockhampton is reputed to be the "Beef Capital" of Australia, it is good news that this 'steakhouse' produces excellent seafood, as well as beef. It is pleasantly situated, overlooking the Fitzroy River, in the centre of town. The staff were friendly and helpful, providing excellent service. We were impressed by the selection on the menu and opted for the... More

When I travel, I love to eat, and I'm always looking for a good restaurant to try. Being in Rockhampton for 1 night recently, I simply got on Trip Adviser and searched for the Top 10 restaurants.
