Nice pub with a very fairly limited food range. Nothing too Irish about the selections. Staff not overly friendly to strangers but seem to know most of the locals. Beer was served nice and cold

Stopped in for lunch, the staff were friendly, the meals were beautiful, my husband was still talking about it at dinner time, at a very reasonable price. When we are back in Townsville, we will be having lunch at the Shamrock Hotel.

Long list of toppings for Schnitzels, and price deals on certain days. Fresh oysters were magnificent. Staff very friendly and helpful, meal sizes generous, and very competitively... More

This night was rump steak night. It was 400 grams, cooked to perfection and came with chips. Great value. The place may not be as fancy as the... More

Spent quite a few nights there in between a few things we had on in Townsville. Nice clean pub with a very friendly atmosphere. Service was good and prices weren't to bad, had a very nice steak there one night which was also reasonably priced. Would definitely return if in Townsville again
