Walked over to the great western as we were staying at the Denison hotel. Dinner was okay but nothing wonderful for the price. Probably wouldn't go back.

Not many other places where you can wine and dine and watch bull rides. Great atmosphere and wonderful experience for visitors from out of town.

Staying at the Beautiful Denison hotel across the road we wandered over for dinner. Pleasant restaurant friendly staff and very happy with my rump steak.

The food here is below par, it's a shame because there's a really good atmosphere (rodeo night) and had the potential for a great night if it wasn't for poor food/service. Our meals came out 15-20 minutes apart and they actually ended up completely forgetting about one. We ordered the rump steak, rib eye, and 2 Atlantic salmons. The salmon... More

Stayed at the Denison and have enjoyed eating here for the past few years. However, was so disappointed to see that new management had changed so much and lost what was charming about the hotel. At the same time prices skyrocketed.Spoke to the chef who was very helpful and advised he would cook me dinner from the old menu. What... More

I ate here as it was recommended to me by a colleague and right across the road from my hotel. Great atmosphere. Great food. The special (crumbed steak) was excellent value.

We were staying across the road and I was recovering from surgery so my husband nipped across to the Great Western for dinner expecting something amazing. He chose the chicken parmy for about $19 as it's his favourite meal plus he didn't want to pay $29 for the 300g steak. Maybe the steak there is good but the chicken was... More

Slow service, quick but mediocre meals. Daytime staff had no idea of the night time events. A bit disappointed

We had a great hearty meal of steak, chips and salad here. The rib on the bone just melted in your mouth and I am a well-done girl. I would have loved to be there on the nights that the rodeo was on.

We had a terrific night on Friday night at the GW. Booked a table with family who hadn't been before (we were just passing through Rocky) the meals were good - steak/ the salmon) - a little on the dear side but you could just buy cheap food in the show itself. Exciting to watch the show - so well... More
