Wonderful view when we stopped in for drinks and possible snack. Snacks not great choice and quite expensive. Would not give out WiFi which in Strahan is a big deal with no cellular to speak of.

This was a fantastic feast and great value. Smorgasbords are not my favourite but this one was full of tasty dishes and a good selection. Staff were excellent and it was a busy night.
