I've visited this restaurant once but ... I was there at 5 pm when it should have been opened. It wasn't ready yet, however, and I was told that it would in half an hour so I left. My advice is to stay away of this restaurant.If this is the way they run their business then count me out. There are plenty of restaurants in NY(and maybe some Australian ones too) that one doesn't have to wait half an hour in, aren't they?

Not bad but not great. I have been travelling for a long time and been to many Australian themed/run places. I was not that impressed with this joint.

My girlfriends and I wanted to try something Australian, and the friendly waiter recommended the kangaroo skewers. We then had the seared kangaroo fillet. I must say that the kangaroo tasted just like beef, maybe more tender :) Great service here. I will surely return. Oh, the prawns of the barbie--delightful!

I would definitely recommend this place if you are looking for a lively night out with slightly different fare. The atmosphere is pretty loud (although we were there late on a friday night) and there isn't much in the way of seating, so I'd strongly suggest reservations. The appetizers and entrees were great - not amazing, but worth the 20 or so dollars per plate. I had the kangaroo filet and emu carpaccio, which wasn't too different from the beef version, but exciting and a novelty none-the-less. They also had a great wine list. I wasn't too impressed with the dessert menu - nothing chocolate, but everyone else got desserts, which they all enjoyed. My main complaint was the service. The waiter wasn't rude, but definitely only did the bare minimum, which surprised me b/c the man on the phone when I called for reservations was so fun and jovial. The waiter mixed up our wine order, then did nothing to fix it. He also never returned to ask how our food was, if we needed more drinks, and if we wanted to see the dessert menu. When the total bill comes to about $80 each, I expect a lot more. Overall, I do recommend it. I've never had australian before and it was a pleasant change from the usual dining experience. It's also great for groups and if you want to stay and party afterward at the bar.

If you're looking to get a good fill on some good food, this is not the place for you. Portions are quite small, you don't get a lot of kangaroo meat for $24.00. Make sure you order a side of mash potatoes, which will cost you $5 for a small bowl, and don't be shy to ask for an extra portion of the bread and oil. Stay clear of the "Emu Carpaccio"; I knew it was a mistake to order the raw bird, and at $11.00 this appetizer underperforms drastically. Service is very attentive however, atmosphere is quite nice especially on the small outside garden. If you like beer, get the James Boag's Premium Lager, a really flavorful Australian beer.

Eight Mile Creek is the best place in New York. The people and staff there are so friendly and the Sunday BBQ's are just like being back home in Australia.

Love it here. Everyone is so friendly - and the drinks are delicious! I highly recommend going there during the day on a lazy weekend and having some Coopers with the diverse cheese plate. Dinner ain't too shabby either! Try it - you'll be glad you went somewhere without pretense, but with class.
