We visit with our family almost weekly and the tall guy at the front door is in our opinion is a major reason we keep coming back. He is always very friendly - helpful and goes out of his way to make us feel welcome.

My wife and I went here for a niece's birthday and although the Fiddler looks reasonably nice it is a sprawling place so do ask if you are meeting people anywhere.

Been here a few times in the last 12 months. Last night was the last time. Two measly pieces of flathead and chips $22. The steak was way over cooked. This place is overpriced. Drive a few km's and get better food for half the price
