Was one of 54 car club members who had lunch here on a Saturday. They had prepared for us a light meal with a choice of 5 main dishes, desert and tea/coffee all for $20. This is value hard to beat. The meals themselves were very good although some were warm rather than hot but given the size of our... More

As a quirky road house serving the very basics this is fine - if you overlook the grumpy service. But the pricing reflects a very different experience than they offer. Most of the options we had were at least 3 times a sensible price, even given the location.

Title says it all. Called when not busy. Food best described as plain and unexciting. Nothing wrong with it, and portions good, but tasteless and uninspiring. If you like flavour, think of adding chilli or pepper to taste. The region was badly hit by fires and is trying to rebuild. They need your support but are more likely to get... More

One of the few places to get lunch on that side of the Grampians. I have always driven past, but finally stopped in for some lunch on a recent trip. Nice rustic home style meals and a beer in front of the open wood fire. It was a cold wet day and it was nice to stop. Agree with the... More

Excellent customer service. Delicious iced coffee. Yummy wedges. Interesting 'Puma Stories' wall. Lovely garden. Heaps of wildlife especially the pet magpies. Even a open fire.

Do yourself a favour and keep on driving past this awful place. Even if you get past the dated shabby decor you can't get past the awful, disgusting, plastic tasting stuff they put on plates and call food. Maybe they don't have easy access to fresh produce but theres no excuse for this over priced, poor quality, tasteless rubbish. Spoilt... More

It was a hot midday and we were hungry. Queue the Wander Inn that came up on our right hand side as we were driving along. We pulled in. Grabbed a beer and iced coffee and ordered a fabulous, well priced lunch. We sat out in the beautiful garden eating it. Staff were attentive. It was delightful.

We had booked a lunch for a large party and they handled it very well. The food was terrific and such good value. $22 for a main course and dessert. Home made apple pie was yummy! They have an interesting section dedicated to the Puma which roamed this area a few years ago. Including an impressive stuffed example.

Lunch booking two months in advance for a bus load of senior tripping around Grampian, was cancelled at very short notice because another client booked in two buses. Thankfully the Olive Grove was most helpful with doing lunch for them.
