Fisherman's Wharf Tavern - Gold Coast

Hello Fellow Nom Seekers!  

Every so often, the caveman in me craves a nice juicy steak.  As the State of Origin was also on that day, Fisherman's Wharf was a-buzzing and it was the ideal ambience for a chow down pub meal.  

The 400g Scotch Fillet was calling my name.  It was $28.90 and the extra mushroom sauce was a rather exorbitant $2.90 extra.  I'm not sure why some establishments don't just charge a flat $31 for the steak inclusive of sauce.  I would have happily paid that.  Separating it out like that was a bit irksome.  Aside from the that, the fillet was wonderfully executed - it was an above average steak...juicy and tender.

Other friends ordered the New York pork ribs, seafood basket, lemon pepper calamari and the eye fillet mignon. Everybody was satisfy with their choices which is always a good sign. All mains we had were between $18 and $29.

For dessert, the choices were not as extensive as the mains.  We all had either the sticky date pudding or the chocolate mud cake. Both were served with ice cream. They were both $8.50 with and extra $1 for coffee. Both dessert were on the very sweet of sweet.  Perfect for sweet tooths but not so good for the health conscious. 

Great night and great food. Unfortunately the Maroons lost by four points and there were some very disappointed Queenslanders around.
