“Sad old pizza”
Reviewed 24 February 2012

We have eaten here many times at the Airlie Beach Hotel and also at Capers, the beachside restaurant also owned by the AB Hotel.
On this night after a long drive we decided to eat early and simply and head to bed.
We arrived @ 5.45pm to order our pizza but were told that they couldn't take orders until 6pm. They would not even take the order and payment and hold until 6pm for processing.
Unfortunately we waited and received one of the worst pizzas ever. In the past they have been a bit variable but his one was burnt on the bottom but also soggy as if it had been scorched by too much bottom heat. There was an over abundance of messy cheese and very lillte meat topping.
Service was offhanded as often happens in Airlie with many backpackers topping up their wallets and no real committment to the job.
In short a waste of good money and no enjoyment.
we would have been better off buying some ham and having it on toast back in our apartment.
NOTE: Wine is also not cheap here either.

Reviewed 21 February 2012

Plenty of variety on the menu, food fresh and well presented, bit of fun on the pokies at the back area afterwards.

“You won't be sorry”
Reviewed 3 February 2012

With so many choices available we had initially decided on casual fish and chips but with no eftpos at the first place we went to we then decided to splash out and we ended up at Mangrove Jacks. I was a little put off by the prices but you really get a lot on your plate. I had the seafood platter which was a large serving of crumbed scallops, prawns, calamari, tempura fish and crunchy chips. I am a seafood lover and it was all so fresh. The salad on the side was also plentiful and tasty. My fussy husband ordered a large woodfired pizza and ate the lot with no complaints! That in itself is a compliment.
