We've been to this restaurant a few times and it was good. This time we came for my birthday and we both had the worst steaks of our life. My sirloin which I requested to have the fat cut away had 30% fat, was tasteless...and sinewy, and my partners fillet steak was bland and tasteless. Not even the addition of their sauce made much of a difference. Hugely disappointed and won't go back.More

A Rustic venue, great buzz and service excellent. But the steak (we had ribeye) was probably the best I have ever had! And very good value as well! This place was packed the night we visited so would strongly suggest you make a reservation.

Great steaks and great service. Very deceptive from the outside. Great atmosphere and decor inside. Old style saloon.

We didn’t have a booking, but we got lucky it was a quiet night! This place is so homely and we were taken very good care of. But the steak has got to be one of the best fillets we’ve ever had! Alongside chips to...die for, and I’d never put a fried egg with it at home, but it works. There is a vegetarian quiche option but other than that this is a true steak house. The food is 6 stars!More

When all you serve is steak it had better be good. And this was very good. No frills restaurant, no frills service -- the steaks were superb and the staff nice & friendly.

Service very bad. After a good 30 min I got up to fetch the menu. Had to call another waiter for drink order. Standard of meat not as good as normally. Female waiter very impolite when I questioned the second batch of pepper sauce that...was very liquid and diluted. Not the same as we are used to.More

We were recommended to Joplins by a friend and also Moontide River Lodge. Coming from Europe a 300 g steak is huge. My husband was in heaven. We chose the fillets as they were slightly smaller. It is truly one of the best steaks we...have eaten. Excellent wine, fantastic music, and great service. Delicious fresh salad, chips, garlic butter, and pepper sauce. Desserts were great, too. It was so good we went back two nights later. We were not disappointed.More

Excellent food, brilliant service and great value for money. The staff were welcoming and very friendly. The menu was ideal and the options were appealing. We sat under the canopy it was comfortable and well spaced. This is a popular place to eat so I...am glad that we booked. We had a lovely meal and a relaxing evening. Thank you.More

This niche restaurant never disappoints - cuts of meat all first-class and the chef’s basting sauce, combined with exceptionally efficient staff, all call for a return.

Unfortunately tonight was a bit disappointing. Told waiter that quality of steak was not it's usual standard. Seating was also uncomfortable. We were asked to leave as they needed our table. Realize it's silly season, maybe that explains things

This unassuming little restaurant hidden between the bushes is an absolute jewel... You will not easely find a better steak in a 100 km radius. Unpretentious, to the point but the best possible steak available.. I have yet to have a bad meal here and...I have been visiting them for many years.. The owner and his son personally prepares the meat and it is to perfection.. You will not be disappointed..More
