Best restaurants in Mackay

Bar
““THE DISPENSARY” established in 2013 would not be out of place in downtown Manhattan, inner-city Melbourne, or the latest James Bond movie. This funky eclectic bar is the perfect complement to BURP.eat.drink as the place to be, pre and post dinner. It’s the Social Space to go with friends or work colleagues for a light bite and a drink in a relaxing and contemporary environment. With an extensive wine list, boutique beers, whiskies and cocktails THE DISPENSARY has all tastes covered.”

“You really can't go past Burp Eat Drink and The Dispensary. Best to book ahead. The owners are a long time Mackay local family and they have put their heart and soul into this place. Burp is modern Australian cuisine and right next door is the Dispensary bar which also serves a tapas style menu / cheese platters with premium drinks and a wine cellar to match. They have some quirky themed specials midweek.... Tuesday nights are “Roast + Red” Wednesday night “Paella + Pinot (this may change to Pinot and Pies) for $21 (don't get too excited it's only one glass) Best to check out their Facebook page / website to find out what is on whilst you are in town.”

“Marias Donkey Tapas Bar on River street, little more relaxing set right on the river front. Get there mid afternoon to catch a good spot and get a glimpse of the beautiful Mackay sunsets. ”
