Had a fantastic lunch here out on the front deck. Enjoyed the warm duck salad while my friends went for the good old Chicken Parma. Everyone very impressed with the quality of meals and service. Not to mention their own great beers on tap to match.

Mediocre food. Pretty boring interior. A bit over priced. The staff was friendly and tried their best to accommodate.

Great beer selection and food was delicious. Staff couldn't be more helpful and friendly and they were very busy as we went MotoGP weekend. Certainly will be returning next time at Phillip Island.
