Overall great experience, delicious food and drink. Perhaps cook the chips longer so they are crunchy

Meals were over priced and not worth the extra dollars. You don’t mind paying too dollar for great quality food. But this was disappointing. Almost an hour wait for ribs that weren’t that great at all.

Views are great. Good idea to start your evening with a 5.30pm seating. However, the food and service was disappointing. My order did not arrive after those arpund us ordered and recoeved their food. Seems our order was lost and arrived overcooked and cold. I sent mine back and it was reasonable. The other meals were not great. Maybe stay for a drink and move on.

Well nice location. The salad & desert bar that is included with your meal is lovely. The line to purchase your meal took 20mins to order. When I received my crumbed steak it was lovely but half of it was raw and I couldn’t eat it. The waitress I showed said ‘that’s disgusting’ would you like another one. By then my partner had demolished his meal so no point. That was the end of it. No offer of refund or follow up from any staff. Very disappointing. .

The Pub is exactly that, a pub style atmosphere with a healthy dose of modern touches with something for everyone, buffets, to smoked ribs, to cocktails, live music, to a sports bar, unforgettable sea views, tab for the punters , ice cream and lollies for the kiddies, great service. We had a epic night entertained and satisfied at every level.

We ordered the rump steak; it included the buffet. My husband's steak was fine but mine was terrible. It had a lot of fat through it. I could only eat half. I told the waiter when he collected the plates. He wasn't interested at all.

For the price I was very very underwhelmed with my ‘monster steak’ completely dry, think somewhat of a steak snitz rather then an actual steak. $25 for one cocktail… I can buy a whole case for that price. We also ordered a ribs and were told “I’m not sure what day the ribs were cooked”! what day.. they should be made to order for the ridiculous price paid. We then asked for a refund on the ribs (after painfully eating out steak that resembled a burnt piece of cardboard). After asking for a refund we were told we could have a credit (by a lovely man who was trying to make up for the gross food), a credit.. after the quality I would only spend the credit on the pokies. Potatoes - dry. Overall good service from one staff member & awful food. Lovely courtesy bus driver.

Great venue with lovely staff .Who are always ready to help and assist you. Food was hot and served with in a reasonable time Bar staff are always great and very polite. Waitresses are really helpful and checkin to see your food is ok Enjoy the music and love the bands. Being older we enjoy feeling comfortable amongst everyone. Moved up last December and this is our favourite place on a Saturday and during the week for tea.Thankyou to all your lovely staff.::)))

We booked in using the OpenTable site which seemed to worked better in a phone than the Ipad( glitch on the day) . We arrived early , the waiter knew exactly where we were going to sit without having to search records etc. Obviously “homework” had been done beforehand. There was a great choice on the menu. You would have to be pretty picky not to find something to suit your taste. A bit too noisy for my liking but it’s a pub and to be expected. A good lunch and a good time was had. Will definitely go back.

My table group found the food, service and environment enjoyable except that the man who was entertaining everyone was way too loud for us to enjoy while we were eating and talking. He was the reason we did not stay.

Loved the Airlie Beach Hotel. We went on State of Origin night and on Sunday night to the acoustic guitar session. Both nights were extremely busy but the staff couldn’t have been more friendly and helpful. I requested a particular table for Origin and although there were only two of us and it was a table for four they kindly let us have it. Thought the value for money was excellent as you could go up to the buffet as many times as possible. Loved the salmon. Would definitely go back to the Pub when we are in the area again and have already recommended it to friends and family.

Very disappointed with the service from the reservation man. He was very rude and condescending. Another worker helped with our very minor issue which worked out well. Food is average, drinks are overpriced. Many other preferable options to eat and drink in Airlie Beach.
