Lovely family meal. I enjoyed one of the blackboard specials, a lamb curry which had just a good amount of heat. The children really love the ice cream as part of the kids meals and of course they lo e to play with the other kids in the play equipment.

Regardless of fathers day, a good chef should be able to manage the load. 50 minute wait for 2 chicken schnitzel burgers from bar menu. To top it off, comes out, looks like it's one small schnitzel cut in half to feed two. Staff very rude when asked about how long burgers would be. Might pay to shut off bar meals on special days if the chefs not up to serving all areas.

I went with a friend for lunch. I ordered marinated pork belly served with jus, over pumpkin mash but opted for salad and chips.
The meat was like old string, no taste and hard to cut with a knife, and sent to table without any jus. The crackle was like shards of glass , rather than crunchie like pork crackle, it was dangerous as it was tooth breaking, it was so hard I gave up

A small group of us(4 kids, 4 adults) went to Mackeys for dinner.
We were seated and drinks were ordered from the very friendly bar staff.

2 of the kids ordered from the kids meals which came quite quickly, maybe 20 minutes before the rest of meals. Once they inhaled that they played on the play equipment inside.

From there, it went downhill.
My partner ordered the pork belly, which we both would normally order when it's on a menu and I ordered a mixed grill platter.

When the pork arrived it didn't look appealing at all. No crunchy skin, unusual colouring and looked like a gelatenous cube of fat.
I didn't try it myself (as it looked gross) but my partner couldn't stomach it saying it tasted like a sock.

My mixed grill had all the good things like a nice porterhouse steak, chipolata sausages, chicken, bacon, egg, porkchop, fried mushrooms and tomato - as the menu describes.
It was TERRIBLE! All Of the meat was so dry I had to have a drink after each bite. If for not being as hungry as I was, I would have sent it back!
I've had better tasting microwave meals and that being generous to be honest.

The waitress that had been giving us the best service came to check how we were going with drinks and meals to which we replied with our unhappiness with the meals. I had eaten mine but said it awful and told the waitress that my partner couldn't stomach it and it was bad that she didn't want anything else.
The waitress took the meal back to the chef as we wanted a round for that dish.
When the waitress returned she told us that the chef had said there was nothing wrong with it and to not refund!
I would have loved to see the chef eat it.
Lucky for us the waitress cared about customer satisfaction and refunded us for the dish.

In conclusion: food was terrible but the bar staff were A++

An hour for our meal was absolutely starving by the time it got there. Wasn't overly busy at the time. I mean the food was decent apart from half the chips not really being cooked properly. We won't be attending again third time there's been an issue. Given this place too many chances!!

Responsible gaming tips

When playing, remember that:
  • Playing is supposed to be fun, so leave when it stops being fun.
  • Make sure you don't spend more than you intend - take how much you are happy to lose, and leave your cards at home.
  • Don't play when tired or when inebriated as this will impair your ability to play responsibly and know when to leave.
  • Know when it's time to leave - and leave.

Gaming venues in Australia are committed to facilitating responsible gambling. As well as adhering to State regulations, gaming venues may also subscribe to an industry code of conduct. You can usually find this information on their website.
