Was our last night with family before flying home,I personally didn't eat but the rest of the family did (8 of us) the food service was fast and the drinks were served quick,we all had a laugh at the menus which set a nice tone to the evening.The food was reasonably priced and will definitely return again to try the food myself

It was such a pleasure for my partner and I to visit Route 72 Saloon, during this festive season. This just typifies the general service that the Saloon provides, day in and day out. Under the guidance of the ownership of Willem, coupled with the bar, waitrons, and kitchen staff, they have ensured that despite how busy they might be, everything is of the top level. I would like to compliment a few of the staff (but the rest of all were top level) and these are Nomsa and Ronaldo in the kitchen, and on the waitrons side, Iris, Lisa, Deiandre, Candice and Sandra. The food is always top notch, and variation is always on the offer, and the setting is absolutely perfect. Full credit must go to the owner, who is always in total control and always hands on. This place is a credit to our coastal town of Port Alfred, and appreciation goes to all involved. Well done Willem and staff. May it please continue.

Awesome venue, place has great character, front of house staff very friendly, most of the food was brilliant, only the fried food was shocking, calamari and chips dark brown, very oily,( dirty oil and oil temp to low) pizza was great, ribs good and salad not bad. Ordered a second pizza because we enjoyed the first one so much, unfortunately while watching the cook prepare it saw him wipe his nose with his hand and carried on preparing our pizza without washing his hands. When confronted he denied it. Paid for the second pizza and donated it to the kitchen staff. Will definitely go again but will just keep an eye on the cook.

Well done, once again to Willem and his staff, we had food off the tapas menu, was absolutely finger licking good. Besides the good food, this pub has got such a lovely atmosphere, great place to watch sport.
