This is obviously the place for the locals as it was reasonably packed for the middle of the week. The menu board has plenty to choose from with some items well priced and others over priced. Whilst the meal was very good the service is a bit slow and consists of backpackers trying to do their best. I suggest that... More

Have been to the overlander a few times, if you want a good cheap steak that taste good, then this is the place to get it. But I decided to have a chicken Kiev for a change and was disappointed. It was still raw in the centre, and when I complained they reheated the same piece of chicken and bought... More

Excellent steaks at a good price served with chips and salad are my favourite. When in Mount Isa we always make time for lunch. The service is fast and the food yummy.

This restaurant was recommended; there is always a cheap steak option for lunch & dinner. I tried this; beautiful. At last a steak cooked the way it's ordered! Then I tried the amazing steak meal with bacon & hollandaise sauce; so yummy & filling & not super expensive either. Lots of choice of seating. Family friendly also. I'll keep going... More

Everything about this pub is average, visit if you want, the chips on our meal were only warm, the steak was good, fish was good, drinks were expensive, we left unsatisfied, there are much better places to go like ISA pub, Buffs or Irish Clubs & there are free courtesy buses, so no reason to put up with a second...

Its is decent pub, exactly the sort of place to get a good meal. Theres room to breathe here, the service is enthusiastic. The food is good gastro pub food. The steak is correctly cooked to order. Easy to get into but watch the walkway outside its a little broken.

The Ovi is our choice for a value for money lunch on the weekends. Generally the food is of good quality and comes out in reasonable time. Steaks are good value for money. Not as amazing as other places but they are worth what you pay most of the time. Kids meals are good too

We had a meal at the Overlander Hotel in Mount Isa about a week ago, kinda slow service, the beer was good and we drank a lot, the food took a while to come out, it was all deep fried so I’m not sure why it took so long. Decent mining town pub atmosphere but nothing to write home about,... More

We frequent 'Ovie' regularly for lunch and are happy but we recently treated kids there for dinner after hearing good reviews of their dinner menu too. They must need more staff because we waited 2 hrs for our meal (630-830) and the place was only about half full. The food was average, the worst was my daughters meal kids lasagne... More
