Delicious meals, great prices, a great venue, live bands, pokkies, lovely outdoor seating, allowing a view of the passing world, and street view.
Still serve wonderful meals with very good serving sizes.
Meals arrived promptly and beautifully cooked.
Chooses of Steaks with prawn toppers with an array of sauces served on a bed of crispy fries accompanied by a yummy salad with a tasty dressing.
Best Meals in Town by a mile.

Personally i wouldn't recommend or be coming back, food was terrible (chicken was like plastic warmed up) , salad drenched in dressing and chips cold.
I ended up getting food elsewhere after.
Accommodation - you get what you pay for thats for sure! Beds you can feel the springs, heard another room get it on, slamming doors and screen when people returning to units (which kept waking up our child) decor a bit stained, no free wifi info anywhere and "yep heres your keys , see you later" at the bar for check in.
No the greatest experience for the money spent.

Bar and wait staff were amazing very friendly.
My steak however was over cooked. I approached the head chef after I ate the thinner edges of the steak which was well done. I was not bothered it was the thinest part of the rump I cut into the bulk of it and it was medium when I asked for rare. The cheff said well you ate it so I explained I ate the well done bits knowing it's hard to get the hole rump rare. He was rude an unprofessional. told me it keeps cooking on the plate ... I then found myself educating this bloke on resting the streak after cooking it. Great service except for this drop kick

Good large rooms with private bath & kitchenette. Washer and dryer. Excellent location, short walk (5mins) to everything or short drive (6mins) to Ballina Fair shopping mall. Beds are not great, but ok for a short stay. Very clean rooms & helpful staff. It's foundation elevation kept even the bottom level (rooms 1-5, 6-10 upstairs) dry through the flood (March 1st-4th 2022) and could withstand tides up to 2m. The water did not reach the steps at the height (1.8m) of even the the King tide. The flood related high tides will come on the street thru the drains, and it may look alarming, but the levels go back down with the tide. Unless it's 2m+ , there's no need to panic. All in all - very lucky to be here during the worst flood on record.

The Ramada (70m directly in front ) has its own generator and so has access to EFTPOS, hot food, cold beer, barista made coffee and most importantly of all power to charge phones. Probably one of the VERY FEW businesses on Ballina Island able to offer anything essential. The Slipway Motel lost power, internet and hot water due to the flood. Contacting management during the crisis was impossible, so make sure you have that info beyond what is provided.

Great food and excellent service, when your not local it's sometimes a gamble on where to choose, this place is definitely the right choice. Can't go past the $12 steak and schnitty, it was perfectly cooked and so tasty.

Best prices in town. Often live music. $12 steak or chicken snitty. Lovely friendly staff. Fast and efficient meal service... Winner winner chicken dinner.

The service was good, the lady was attentive. Good location and atmosphere, unfortunately the food was a major let down. The steak was burnt black, the burger patties were black and the halloumi salad was the worst I have tasted, cabbage thrown together with small chunks of halloumi and nothing else. Definitely would not eat there again but would go for a beer.

Tonight I ordered 2 meals for me and my mum take away.

Tried to sign in as usual (at 7pm) and the old bald guy who's job is to "help" people sign in started ranting and raving at me, he was literally spitting in my face no mask breathing onto my nose. I'm pretty sure the camera will show his poor distancing. If he just took one step back everything would of been fine.

Was extremely happy when he said I could never return after being a patron their for over 16years without incident.

Food was amazing as always and service by other staff was lovely thankyou.

Played here a few times in both duo and band formats!! Nice big back room for bands but my partner and I especially loved playing out the front on the small beergarden stage as a duo. The vibe with the street and passing traffic is fun, fun, fun not to mention being up close and personal with the patrons. ..
Now to back those steaks ! Sensational feed for the price .. no point in going anywhere else for a steak.
