We stayed at the hotel and were told by locals to eat at the restaurant. We happened to be there for the Curry Buffet and it was excellent. They had lamb, chicken and beef choices so it was for the Australian diet and not strict vegetarian. We noticed many locals coming here for dinner. It was reasonably priced and tasty.

My wife and i visit The Overlander Hotel quite often as we really enjoy their food. The range is great and the price is really cheap and considering the size of their meals I'm surprised they make a profit. I've never experienced a bad meal at The Overlander. You can also eat your meal inside or outside, with plenty of... More

This is obviously the place for the locals as it was reasonably packed for the middle of the week. The menu board has plenty to choose from with some items well priced and others over priced. Whilst the meal was very good the service is a bit slow and consists of backpackers trying to do their best. I suggest that... More

Excellent steaks at a good price served with chips and salad are my favourite. When in Mount Isa we always make time for lunch. The service is fast and the food yummy.
