“Great food but....”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 August 2014

Meal quality was excellent but, for the price, portions were small. One negative: although were are obviously 'seniors' we were not offered the seniors discount which was advertised on the video notice board. When my wife mentioned it to the waitress when the empty plates were collected she just laughed.

“Don't miss this”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 January 2013

The Denison Hotel in Bowen, Qld. is a typical Aussie style hotel, featuring a bar, a restaurant section and a separate games room, as well as an outdoor sitting area out the back. New Years Eve 2012 we went to have dinner at the Denison. One could order off the menu or have a choice between about 5 specials of the day. All the meals ordered were delicious and everyone was very happy. My daughter said, this place is never a miss when it comes to food – it’s always really nice, plentiful as well as affordable. Weekdays, lunch specials are $11 and there are meals such as T-bone steak, Chicken schnitzel, Local Fish and more to chose from, all come with Chips, vegies or salad. Evening meals are $ 16 to $18, again a good choice of quality dishes, plus free access to an extensive vegetable, salad and sweets self serve bar.
The staff is very friendly and helpful and the premises are comfortable and clean. When in Bowen, don’t miss out going there for a meal. Like me, you most likely will come back more than once.
