This little gem is tucked between Bojangles and The Rock Tours, and we didn’t even notice it at first. When we discovered that Bojangels was no longer serving lunch, we walked outside and noticed The Rock Bar’s Menu on the window next door. It looked...More

We went to The Rock Bar after our tour. The food for party of 15 was ordered together on a sheet of paper, which then seemed to be ignored. Tables were served haphazardly, which meant that half our table had finished their meal before I...More

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

We went as a group after The Rock Tour. It was fun to hang out with everyone from the trip, but the portions were small and nothing special. I wouldn't recommend going on your own as a place to eat outside of the group dinner.

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.

The food (burgers) were fine, but hardly substantial and the accompanying chips totalled 14 in number. The cost was not cheap ($25 for a burger and a beer) so overall, hardly a positive dining experience. However, what made it worse was the service- the bar...More

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.

No typo, my review is correct. Our group had just completed an Adelaide to Alice tour and we went out to celebrate. I stayed at Toddys who run the rock tour and apparently the Rock Bar.
