A very friendly local Pub, with great food and service. Prices are very reasonable and there are weekly specials on certain days, like two for one meals and parties $16. Great value.

Banjo's have great two for one deals for lunch and dinner on certain days of the week. The food is nice and homely and tastes good. A nice place for drinks, lunch or dinner.

It's nice to get out of the tourist strip and get some great pub grub. Chilled out environment and big portions.

Banjos has indoor and outdoor eating and drinking facilities. Parking is not a problem in the adjacent shopping center. The food is good and the service is fast and friendly. Prices are very reasonable, so well worth a visit.

The atmosphere the service and the food were all great. I must admit that I am a little biased as the original licencee Chrissy named the place after my dad.Do you guys still have jam sessions?

Great value, great food and great service for a pub. Ordered the Barramundi for lunch and while not in stock, the substitute offered was just as good. Asked if I wanted battered or grilled. Generous portions, flavoursome, nicely balanced with a great salad and chips.

We had beautifully prepared lamb shanks and veges for the special price of 2 for $30. The staff were great and the atmosphere very much holiday mode. Very enjoyable experience for the second time.
