Had a team dinner after our 3 day tour. It was very good value for money and a very decent serving. Great atmosphere, a lot of happy travellers.

The bar is in the central Alice Springs, very easy to get to. It provides everything: steaks, sandwiches, hamburgers, beer, cocktail... The dining atmosphere is nice. And you can also enjoy the regular singers here while having dinner. The price is fair, not too expensive....More

Great steak sandwich, friendly staff and reasonably priced drinks. Sit at the bar stools in the big front windows to watch the world go by.

We ordered the barramund, chips and salad. The fare was perfectly fine and good value too. That said, I don't see how the pub can rate more than three bullets.

This is where we all had dinner together after our 3 days camping tour with The Rock tour before everybody head off to different directions the next day. The price is surprisingly cheap. A 300g rump steak costs $18 with The Rock tour and it’s...More

Had a really delicious lunch at the Rock Bar. Great, friendly staff and quick service. Close to town - a quick stroll from Todd Mall.

Had the best rump steak here, was so tender, very large and just melted in my mouth. Came with chips and a fresh salad, would recommend!
