I ordered the mini rump n reef. The steak was smothered in calamari, a few prawns and a few mussels in a creamy garlic sauce. Very filling. Located about a 5 Min walk away from the Seabreeze caravan park. Staff are friendly and the outdoor area is great to sink a few cold beers.

We came here based on two recommendations from the local bus driver and our accommodation hosts so were expecting great things. I think we went on a day where there were no 2-4-1 deals which was a bit disappointing. We found the food to be bland and unremarkable to be honest, not sure what the fuss is about. The service...

Special for the night was lamb shank and it was delicious. Healthy portions of all the meals served up so all of us left pretty full. Great menu selection and good service. One of the few places to have free wi-fi on our travels so was a welcome bonus to be able to arrange trips for our onward travels. Great... More

After reading great reviews, I really wanted to have a meal there. Very disappointing. Both my husband and I had a steak,... More

Went to Banjos for dinner on our last night in Airlie Beach. Well what a surprise it turned out to be. Very casual dress code and relaxing environment. The staff were great and attentive. The food was HUGE !!!!!! Big servings with flavour. Double bonus. Even the kids meals were more like a main in most other places we have... More
