During our stay in Rockhampton we went to the "Rocky Top Restaurant" several times because the food was that good.

We'd been given to believe this restaurant was quite good but felt the food was on par with a roadhouse. Dishes were bland and uninspired. 'Vegetables' included what I'm sure were frozen chips. Just not what you'd expect from a restaurant and paying restaurant prices. Not sure how they got awards.

I have stayed at this Motel before. When I knew my next trip was to Rockhampton ....I also knew that the Rocky Top Restaurant was the only place I was going to eat at! I had the 300g Cape Grim Eye Fillet, Creamy garlic sauce and wilted green veg and beautiful baked potatoes...that just soaked up all the lovely juice... More

Excellent service, very good food in a a quiet and relaxed atmosphere. This motel restaurant resting in the shadow of Rockhampton Cathederal is a secret haven awaiting those prepared to travel out of the CBD. Book early and enjoy your meal with a bottle or two of the house red.

Not normally a reviewer but I need to tell people about how bad this place is so they don't waste their money as well. Don't be fooled by the awards hanging on the wall... All our meals had no flavour, over cooked and rubbery. They couldn't even get a baked potato right and each dish (6 in total) were all... More

Had lunch here and did not enjoy it at all, food was very bland and overcooked. Very disapponted for the prices we paid, not somewhere we will be returning to. On the positive side the waiter was very nice and apologetic for the poor quality food.

Our tour group had our accommodation at the Central Motel and our meals there. We enjoyed our steak night, the steak was big and cooked according to how we wanted. The second night, I had the roast pork, it was delicious, especially the crackling.The desserts on both nights were beautiful. We had really good and friendly service from Shane, he's... More

We waited 2 hours for our meals. The medium steaks came out rare. And the vegetables were cold. We where given free drinks and the meals for free. The burgers were fine but not award winning. Waiters doing their best. Something is wrong in the kitchen. Presentation of the meals and venue all ok.
