This downtown steakhouse serves the best in steaks and accompaniments. Known for the "Drovers Blowout", this feast comes with an appetizer of camel, croc, kangaroo and buffalo. A real treat to try something new and different. The Drover also comes with soup, bread, a ribeye...More

We really enjoyed our dinner here, we tried the sample plate of camel, crocodile, kangaroo & buffalo to mixed opinions but great to try them all. The ribs were awesome although a huge plate of food. Kids enjoyed their churros for dessert and staff were...More

Absolutely brilliant. From the initial booking enquiry through to the last drinks it was such a pleasure to experience. The service, the food, the overall hospitality and ambience was excellent. Jenny & Mark (& Tony & the waiteresses) were wonderful. Well done & thank you.More

Just had to come here while staying in alice. Very attentive staff and great selection of meats. Now I can say I've tasted Croc, camel and kangaroo. Good ranch house stuff and they know how to cook it.

This restaurant was one of the recommendations for Alice Springs. It was a short walk from our accommodation. When we were there, it was not very busy with only a handful of tables. The décor is very 'outback' with old posters of Qantas, cricket memorabilia...More

Our meal was perfectly fine - nothing special. The service was friendly and attentive. The place feels dated.

Description
Windmills on the walls, saddles in the rafters, cricket memorabilia by the score and a warm outback welcome. That's what you can expect to see when you walk into The Overlanders Steakhouse, an Alice Springs dining institution in the 'Heart of Hartley'. But if you think a rustic atmosphere means rough cooking and an old-fashioned dining experience, think again. A check of the menu reveals some surprises. There are the signature dishes of course...like the 'The Famous Drovers Blowout', (tastings of Camel, Buffalo, Crocodile, and Kangaroo), which you'd expect from a 'steakhouse'.
