    The lunchtime special, Chicken Schnitty, which only cost $25, was worth every cent. The topping had chopped up steak, bacon, cheese and a few other items, made it the best Chicken Parmy I've ever eaten.

    I went here for a dinner on a thursday night. Good deals and good quality of food. It does get busy at times and service was average. Good atmosphere for a pub.
  • Avatar Hayley Crebbin ★★★★★ 2 months ago
    Classic parmi and bbq bacon & cheese schnitzel. It was bloody awesome and massive.
  • Avatar Ian Clark ★★★★ 6 months ago
    Look this place is good. They don't always mess up your steak but when they do they will replace it. Drink prices are the same as you'd expect in a big city" Bundy isn't that big" but in saying all that people are … More friendly. The bar staff are so damn good. Like a second home really.

    My friends and I have been coming to Sugarland Tavern for over a year now. Even my family and I go there regularly and we all love it so much. The food is so beautiful and they are very considerate for any food changes. Not only is the … More food delicious, but the service from all the staff is the best around. Specifically from the lovely Jennie. Her bubbly personality always leaves me feeling welcomed. I love that I am able to walk out of here with a satisfied and full belly and a wide smile on my face.

    I have had several meals here. Great food, great price, and great service. I have a meal every day for lunch. I have tried about ten pubs in Bundaberg so far. Sugerland Tavern has been the best by far. Highly recomend.

    Drive through purchase. Staff always friendly and masks used. Prices around the same as other places. Sometimes specials. Sad we couldn't get Pacific Radler

    Great selection here....could be mistaken its Dan....large walkin driveway... unfortunately no meal this time would love to give a go, love the position lots of car parking.
  • Avatar jarrod ★★★★★ 3 years ago
    Excellent food as always. Although I felt pretty ripped off one time when I asked for a schooner of Asahi which the cup was only 400ml, and the beer cost me $12.00!!! Other than that, I absolutely Love the food
  • Avatar Nuno Williams ★★★★ 3 years ago
    The place is nice and spacious but the food isn't my taste. I ordered beef curry and rice, didn't like at all but their deep fried wings is good and chicken noodles stir fry is also good, worth the price.
  • Avatar Caroline Robertson ★★★★★ 3 years ago
    Second visit to Tannum Sands Hotel was so much better than our visit last year. Full menu on offer. Great food and an excellent singer- musician playing in the background.
  • Avatar Vanessa Lines ★★★★★ 3 years ago
    A lovely pub! Awesome outdoor seating areas, a jumping castle for the kids and delicious, reasonably priced meals. The staff are super friendly too.
  • Avatar Stephen Moore ★★★★ 3 years ago
    The tavern is close to my home so we sometimes go there just because it is close. The food is ok and the drinks are moderately priced. I ordered a lamb shank and my wife ordered parrot fish 🐟.
    The lamb shank was nice, it had sweet potato
    … More mash and beans. I had not noticed the sweet potato so I was a bit shocked to see orange on my plate. The meal was quite satisfactory, I wish there had been an option to pay for a second lamb shank, several other establishments have this option and I would have liked another shank.
    My wife said the fish was nice but there was too much going on with the toppings, they overpowered the fish, first world problem.
    I was pretty happy with the meal, drinks and ambiance. If you feel like a break from cooking and good old pub food, you will be quite happy with the Sugarland tavern, recommended.
  • Avatar H T ★★★★ 3 years ago
    It's a good place to have a feed and a quite drink and watch TV. It's definitely not what it was in the 1970s and 80s alot quieter now. The 70s / 80s were rather wild times at the timo. Bands playing and punches flying from time … More to time. Yee haa !! The Hill Billy day's.
  • Avatar Paul Warren ★★★★★ 3 years ago

  • Avatar Brooke Marshman ★★★★★ 3 years ago
    My friend and I stayed here on a Friday night as we were attending an event close at The Coolongatta Hotel. It was the perfect location, and a very good price. It was quiet after 12AM, staff were nice and bathroom was very clean. There … More was even an air con in our twin shared bedroom when the website said there would only be a fan. Very pleased!
  • Avatar Lance Maskell ★★★★★ 3 years ago
    We bought our sons wedding alcohol from here, they offered the cold room free to chill everything and a heap of free ice to help with the day. They also offered to take back any unopened cartons and wine etc. but we are Aussies so we kept … More if for out next Barby. Great service from a local business!

    Highly Recommend Antz Grill House
  • Avatar Adam Jackson ★★★★ 3 years ago
    Food was really top notch! Staff were very nice! Ambience could be better and people from the gaming lounge come out every so often to smoke which wafts over the outdoor area even though it's supposed to be smoke free zone.
  • Avatar Val Jones ★★★★★ 3 years ago
