For years they had a great pair of female cooks who served great food of good quality and had premium customer service, this year they have new caterers and things have gone from great to very bad.

First attempt - Chicken burger with a discoloured chicken(?) patty which tasted "off"
Second attempt - Meals came out with dirty plates, top and bottom of plate was covered with a slimy greasy substance and lumps of food.

The club is a great place to meet regulars however they need to be smarter with the caterers they let loose in the eatery!

One of Darwin's oldest Clubs and to be fair hasn't changed all that much - pokies been added and a TAB but vibe is still of an older Darwin Pub. Friendly staff, cold beer and reasonable Club prices. Food is basic but good with a generous serve - no fanfare. Entertainment some Friday nights and weekends - usually good ol' country and well received by locals. All sports on Fox. Good chill out and plenty of characters to meet and talk with. Buy a local a beer and get free entertainment!!

You might as well be in outback Queensland but this friendly place is on the outskirts of the Darwin CBD and would be a great stop on the way to Darwin Airport. Food is excellent and prepared fresh. We chose the Fish and Chips special which was Jew Fish. They have different specials on each day of the week for dinner and even cheaper versions for lunch.

In all my years in Darwin I have not been here until last month when invited by a friend. Great lunch specials, generous serves and nice dining room. Good to duck in and get a nice meal during lunch break or a leasurely meal with friends. Well patronised by workers.
