Looking for somewhere different to eat in Alice Springs came across this place. It was early in the evening and almost empty but the menu looked interesting.

We had kangaroo (the best I've ever had), really nice homemade beef burger, rump steak and chicken parma. Everything was big enough and tasty. When they made a... More

Came here after my Rock Tour with my tour group. Great food and booze. Good place to go if you know people, although meeting people wasn't difficult. Try to make the big space in to a dance floor!

Came in once just for a bowl of chips, delicious and came back with our tour group for a burger, very yummy although they were a bit slow on a couple of others food. Definitely worth a stop!

I tried this place once, but thats all she wrote. Only the steak was good. All condiments were lousy. Beer too expensive for daytime pricing. No outside seating. Only in open area out back which had no sun cover.

Enjoyed sitting and chilling with a couple of cold ones while watching the passing parade on the street. Was not there during a meal time, so can't comment on the food.
