I stop here almost everytime i drive past, mostly for lunch. They serve a whole range of take away style foods, such as burgers, fish, chips and so on. The burgers are THE BEST, and very cheap. If you are heading to the lake, stop in for some chips and gravy, or get it to take to the lake!!

Several times we have called in for a drink and a snack on the way to diving in Lake Eacham. The service is good and the staff friendly. A little expensive for what you get but in an isolated location what do you expect? The hash brown stack was great. Only thing I would add to improve on is to... More

Disappointed. As locals who have supported this cafe/ roadhouse for years we won't be going back. Coffee was served Luke warm, my husband ordered a big brekky it was substantial but was Luke warm. In an attempt to give constructive criticism as there is a new manager in place , I felt it was a waste of time, the manager... More

I have visited here on many occasions over the years. With new management now in place, the whole feel has changed for the better. The restaurant offer a much wider choice of great quality food, the coffee is better and the service is greatly improved. A great place to stop at the top of the range for a break.

We came across the roadhouse while enroute from Cairns to the nearby Crater Lakes on the Atherton Tablelands. The staff were extremely friendly, the food looked delicious. We ordered some hot chocolates & savoury scones which were absolutely scrumptious. The service was very fast. Would definitely recommend a stop. Superb.

We were starving on a day trip adventure and after making it to the top of the Gilles range we spotted this place, went inside and ordered from the wicked menu. All I can say is YUM! All of our food was fantastic down to the hot chips, all cooked really well. There were so many little specials and homemade... More
