My wife and I were visiting Australia from the United States. We had just completed about 11 days of driving from Adelaide to Darwin. We were looking for some good seafood. We learned of The Jetty in one of the tourist magazine we picked up. We didn’t have reservations but were seated as soon as we arrived. I wished there... More

The location of this place is on prime location. Sitting outside with a sea view. The furniture at the outdoor is basic. Indoor is air-condition with better setting. $39.50 eat all you can. One things apart from the seafood, you must try their steak. Remember only order from the grill section while they are cooking. My medium rare steak is... More

We were all very impressed with the selection and quality of the meal. We arrived right on 5:30pm so the food was all fresh and delicious. It got quiet busy as the night went on so definately recommend an early dinner. The selection was a nice change from our usual buffet at home and offered some great choices for all... More

The Jetty is an all you can eat dining option at about $38 a head. I visited with my big eating husband and our teenage daughter who treats a buffet as a personal challenge. The spot could not be faulted, it is on the start of the Jetty and I would recommend you get a seat on the deck. We... More

The views from here are great, overlooking Darwin Harbour. The food is alright, average standard but I wouldn't say it's worth the cost though. As for the service, well the wait staff remind me seagulls. You no sooner put your knife and fork down and their taking your plate, to the point they hang around watching you, waiting for you...

The quality of the seafood and food in general is very good, and you can eat as much as you want. I'm not a big eater but I enjoyed the wide variety that is available. Only very very samll negative, no ice cream, I would have loved Ice Cream

This is a nice place to go to if you have guests over, or simply looking for somewhere to celebrate a birthday. From memory, the buffet is between $30- $40 so it isn't cheap, and the food is only average.

When I was a kid, being taken to any buffet was the best! I remember my mum always saying 'your eyes are bigger than your belly!' So it goes without saying that I tend to enjoy one! I can't remember who told me of this place - and I wish I did. So i could go back as ask why... More
