We stopped by for a quick lunch, it was a $20.00 lunch time special and it included a free drink, we all enjoyed the food, reasonable portions - Great food for reasonable fare.

This place is specialized in red meat and probably not as good for any other dish. I had the kangaroo (available only as an entree) and twice cooked pork belly - very good. Someone else in our group had a massive half kilo porterhouse steak...More
