We came here on holiday and both got things off the hot rock menu. I found that the food was great and it was a lot of fun having the hot rock! Definitely recommend coming here :) We also got the desert which was amazing!

Comfortable outdoor patio, good wifi, friendly staff and a varied menu from tea to fun and tasty "hot rock" steaks. One of my favorite spots in town.

Went here with my girlfriend for dinner. Paid nearly $80 for dinner which was definitely very average. If we paid half that for what we received, would have made a lot more sense.

Nic S, Sorry to hear you did not enjoy the experience. As you can see from the other reviews on Tripadvisor we are a favourite for many. You mention $80 for dinner however two main meal (steaks) two wines & coffee I think this is good value for money considering the quality of our food. Thank you for the review.... More

$30 for a giant steak! Unforgettable experience cooking on the hot rock. The best value meal/experience I have had anywhere in the world. Staff were amazing, food was great quality. I have paid a lot more for a lot less. The best value in Airlie Beach by far.
