This is a typical RSL restaurant with good family food. We all enjoyed our meals of chicken parma and steak although the cesar salad had far too much sauce. However, the requested high chair was not available and the sign in process and seat allocation was not well handled and took far too long.

If you state you offer Gluten Free it does not mean you remove items & provide a sub-standard meal offering for same price, i.e. Chips with Palma need to be gluten free. If you have additional allergies - forget it. All meals are pre-prepped & marinated so no alteration or catering for dietary requirements available. Note: listed dietary special requirements...

This is a popular place, particularly in holiday times. The food is similar to 'pub food', usually has tasty vegetables to accompany the mains. Although, the size of the meals is a little over the top (ie: HUGE...look at the size of the 'Parmas', Fish and Chips for example). I'm not sure why a vegetable lasagne needs to come with... More

We ate here last night as it was close to our motel. We found the food great and the atmosphere friendly. As it filled up, it was quite noisy, but that's to be expected. Really enjoyed it.
