“Good food - especially the salad bar”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

We followed an recommendation and ate at Albies. The service was pleasant and quick and the food well cooked and presented. A feature is the wide selection at the salad bar with your main meal. The prices were at the top end of the usual "pub" meal so you need to be aware of that.

“Not a very friendly experience”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

We used to frequent this restaurant nearly every weekend..either Saturday or Sunday lunch! The food not bad BUT..when they run out of "daily specials" posted on the board it sometimes takes them up to 15mins to let you know hence ordering a replacement???Why so long who knows??Another time I was given the wrong order and when complained upon paying the bill was labeled a "complainer"???The staff member was extremely rude! The salad bar is a joke! If you are seen to give one of your children a piece of cheese or watermelon off your plate you are immediately told that is a "no no" and you have to pay an extra $5.00 for each of them..I doubt that the 6yr or 3yr old would eat anything more than a nibble! We refused just on the principle! The older wait staff are watching like a hawk! We decided to take our business elsewhere and are very gratefull that we did.How about a computerized system for ordering then the wait staff are aware if an item on the menu is no longer available!All in all a very disappointing experience.

“Value for money”
Reviewed 6 June 2014

Lots of choice, either from the menu or the daily lunchtime specials ($17). We haven't been at dinner time so unable to comment.
The food is tasty & includes a salad bar with lots of variety from which to choose. The staff are pleasant & helpful and meals are served in a reasonable amount of time.

“Quick service, pub food, easy night out.”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

We enjoy Albie's because the salad bar is excellent, food portions are generous, cost is reasonable and we can eat and be home fairly early. Easy meal out without fuss or pretension. Glass of wine and no washing up!

“Consistently good”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

Visited Albies whilst down Busselton. Albies is always on our list ! We had an early dinner during the week and both enjoyed our meals. Hubby had a steak and I had the garlic prawns...thumbs up for both of them. The salad bar is great and included with main meals. Staff were helpful and attentive. Albies is consistent, whether it's lunch or dinner. Specials both for lunch and dinner are excellent value. We ll be back.....
