An alchemy of rusty iron, sophisticated cocktails, tropical beats, hearty steaks, and hustling cane toads, the Iron Bar is a restaurant, bar and late night venue, synonymous with entertainment in Port Douglas. By day, the Iron Bar is a popular dining destination, featuring a lip smacking steakhouse menu, classic Aussie pub style eats, and all your favourite burgers, buffalo wings and BBQ ribs. After dinner, you'd be a clown not to indulge in a little bit of unique Port Douglas entertainment, with the famous cane toad racing! Later, the Iron Bar transforms as the epic epicentre of nightlife in Port Douglas. Choose your groove, in two levels of indoor and outdoor space, with the perfect balance of busy dance floors, quiet corners, easily accessible bar, and street space. Our dance floors play host to a mix of live and spun music while the eclectic mix of locals, visitors, royalty, backpackers, American Presidents, wedding parties, sports teams and cane toads brings an unpretentious classic Aussie atmosphere where everybody is welcome, everybody is friendly and everybody will dance! You can't say you've truly been to Port Douglas if you haven't been to the Iron Bar.

We ate here for dinner and ordered burgers. When they brought our food the order was wrong but they fixed it quickly. However, the burgers were not very good. I think the patties may have been frozen. Neither of us enjoyed our food very much.

Stopped in Port Douglas for lunch and was drawn like a magnet to this rustic place. Eclectic mix of dRm style decorations and chandeliers. Not your typical steak house. Had a lovely Burri salad and chips. Good friendly service.
