Our time at Apollo Bay Hotel was just awesome! The staff there were super friendly and really looked after us during our stay. And the food was seriously unreal! Never had a bad feed here!

The vibe at the hotel was chill and welcoming, making it the perfect place to kick back after a busy day. Huge thanks to the team at Apollo Bay Hotel for making our stay so great. Can't wait to visit again soon!!

curry night was great, food delicious service was amazing! I would definitely come back. Would recommend this place to anyone!
In particular Bryan gave us drink on the house because we mentioned that we were celebrating a friend's birthday! Another level of hospitality!!

Came for dinner...not to stay. The reviews were mixed so we were apprehensive but we were pleasantly surprised. The staff gets a bad wrap here...they were attentive and friendly. The dishes were simple pub fare..had the mussels and some fried calamari. The chicken parm did not disappoint. Cold beer and a cozy atmosphere... would recommend!

Yesterday we held our wedding reception at the Apollo Bay Hotel and we could not of been happier. What a venue!! What food!! What service!! All we can say is WOW!!!!
From the minute we decided that Apollo Bay Hotel would be our venue nothing was too much trouble. Communication with the staff was prompt and whatever request we made they ensured it was not an issue. Access to the room to set up was amazing and made the day stress free.
Food......oh my goodness our guests were still talking about it this morning ....so much and so beautifully cooked and presented. Not a single person was disappointed or left hungry.
Staff on the night were simply amazing lead by Sean who is the Master at running a function. It went like clock work and the service was simply spectacular. If you need someone to run your function Sean is your man!!
We have been here for a few days and all the staff we have had contact with have been beyond wonderful!
Thank you to to whole team. We thoroughly recommend Apollo Bay Hotel for any function you may have or just a casual dining experience. The new beer garden rocks!!

We went to the Apollo Bay hotel for dinner and to listen to some live music. The food was great. They surprised us with a bottle of champagne? which made our special night extra special. The staff were warm and friendly. The band was great as well. All in all, we would recommend this place for when you're in Apollo Bay.

We use the Casino Room once a month for a dinner function for between 50 and 100 guests. The staff, led by the wonderful Brayan, are always helpful, warm and absolutely professional. Service is exceptional. We can't recommend them highly enough.

We had dinner there for my husbands birthday and the meals and service by Brian was excellent. Drinks served in actual glasses not like the other pub up the road where drinks are served in plastic cups. Apollo Bay Hotel highly recommended by us

Drinks are flowing nicely, and I think we are going to have a feed. I'll keep you posted.
It is now the next day and I'm not in good shape. The drinks were too delicious. People were super friendly, too. Good times

Great food and plenty of it on your plate when you get your food served to your table. The staff are very polite and helpful as well as respectful. The atmosphere in the Hotel is very warm and peaceful and I definitely would go back to the Apollo Bay Hotel when I am back down at the Bay l also reckermend any one else down that way should definitely go in and try out the menu or site at the Bar and have a couple of drinks or play some pool for awhile .

Excellent Hotel in Apollo Bay. Good place to park yourself for the Great Ocean Road Running Festival as at the finish line. Spacious pub with a fireplace in both the public bar and the bistro. Food is excellent with usual schnitzel, parmies and steak. The steak sandwich was very good as was the steak. Wide selection of beer and wine as you would expect. .

We asked for somewhere warm and they sat us next to the fire which was awesome. Nice decor, friendly vibe.
TV went on for a game as we were leaving which is a shame for those of us who want somewhere peaceful to relax but good I guess for sports lovers. Everyone stopped talking and stared at the TV.
Food was ok. Regular pub food. Reasonable prices considering location on the Great Ocean Road.
Easy on street parking.

Pizza tasted like it came from the frozen section of the supermarket and had a pile of ham in the middle that was undercooked and was unappetising. The side salad was good value for money. We appreciated being able to get a table over the Easter Holiday without a booking but it's the second time in 2 years we've been a little underwhelmed by the food. The bar does have a lovely atmosphere, especially when the fire is lit. If the quality of the food reflected the amazing location then it'd be 10/10. We'll try again next year!

Still as awesome as ever!
When we arrived we were instantly greeted by a smiling staff member at the top of the stairs and shown to a table in the bar area to order some cold bevvies. The vibe was so good there that we ended out ordering a dozen Oysters and the Bucket of Prawns to snack on.
The food was great and the staff - again - awesome like previous visits.
Love visiting this place when we get down to Apollo Bay as it just keeps getting better!

My dinining experience here was mixed. The buffalo wings and the prawn roll were great. The Parma and the schnitzel were a miss. The drinks service was a little on the slow side for a non busy day.

Seated quickly, food arrived in good time. Food was good size serving, atmosphere was good, plenty of people but not too noisy. Food was ok. We had the pizzas, base seemed mass produced not fresh, a little chewy. I had the hot spicy salami which was not at all hot or spicy. Wait staff were friendly, knowledge and efficient.

Ate here for dinner over summer holiday period and it was just ok. They were super busy, so I'm sure that was a factor, but we got a pie that was well overcooked and dry. And a steak that was tasty enough but kind of expected better for $43.
Not terrible, just don't get your hopes up if they are busy.

Friendly staff, thanks Max, and Lots of space to spread out. You can eat anywhere inside or in the Beer Garden out back as well as the Bistro Patio section in front. The smoking section (no food allowed) is on the left between the front stairs and bar. Pool tables in back near Beer Garden.

The chips were good but small.
Prices are crazy these days and not the pubs fault.

Couldn't rate our experience highly enough at the Apollo Bay Hotel. Before getting there we had a the terrible experience at the other pub in town where we were totally ignored and ended up walking out. This quickly changed when we arrived here. We were greeted at the door, offered a high chair immediately for our daughter and had the whole ordering process for food and drink explained to us. Food was top notch, good drinks list and all of the wait and bar staff were friendly. The cherry on top was the manager offering help us carry our daughter and pram down the front stairs. Top class customer service, we'll be back when next in Apollo Bay.

Packed. Good beer on tap (Little Creatures IPA).
All pizzas are gluten free - great stuff!
Angus burger would be a lot better without the sweet Brioche bun. How about option of a plain bun please?

From the moment we walked up the steps we were greeted with great service here!
A young bearded guy (sorry his name escapes me!) took us to a table for lunch, told us where to order and even where the bathrooms were!
We ordered the Calamari plus the Fish and Chips. Both meals were absolutely delicious and the calamari in particular is one of the best I've ever had!

Would definitely recommend having lunch here. The vibe is laid back, the staff are outstanding and the food is awesome - what more could you ask for!!

Went with family, guy at the bar was great. Seating outside is good. But I think manager (I assume he was a manager ) needs training on hospitality. He told his staff not to turn the heater on. I mean surly there are other ways to save money, why put heater up if you not gonna turn on.
Bad hospitality

Service was excellent, the kitchen staff and bar staff and waitresses were very friendly and helpful, Chicken Schnitzel with garlic butter, chips and salad was first class. View from the open window was perfect, trees parkland, sound of the ocean. And the cutest little birds who are very shy, but also very brave.

Fabulous pub on Main Street with fantastic views of Apollo Bay. Huge spaces in side and out on front deck. Beer Gardens restaurant/bistro. We were there for a few drinks and a bit of people watching the front deck was perfect. Lots of tap local beers to choose from. staff happy and helpful a very pleasant afternoon Recommend
