“Staff overwhelmed but not bad all the same”
Reviewed 4 April 2014 via mobile

We were part of a wedding group and I think there werer perhaps more of us than expected with confusion over table numbers. That said the seafood was fresh and delicious, and the bottleshop man friendly and helpful. Was disappointed that bar staff were not able to advise how many standard drinks were in poured beer,these days this is vital. Well worth a visit.

“Only Satisfactory. Expected more.”
Reviewed 12 January 2014

My wife and I ate here for dinner, with high expectations since Eden is very near the ocean. What we got was pretty ordinary pub food. The "fish and chips" were fresh, but very ordinary and for the price, the portion size was very small. It was not good value.
The place was very busy, but the service was quite good, but if you're hoping for a good seafood dinner, or perhaps local mussels or oysters, go elsewhere.

“Small menu, ordinary pub food.”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

We had dinner there this week, not a great menu choice for a coeliac, mostly battered and crumbed club food. I did convince the cook to cook me a grilled fish which was ok. Not cheap prices and drinks pricey. I was a bit disappointed as I had eaten here some 4 years ago and it was good.

Not bad but not that great.

“Brilliant”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

After previous disappointments with the Eden Fishermen's Club dining room, it was great to stumble over the dining room at the Great Southern Inn.
The staff are jovial and attentive and the food is magnificent whilst reasonably priced.
Do try the salmon with capers. Brilliant.
And according to my wife, the lamb cutlets were pretty good too.
We will be back next whale watching season.
