Windmills on the walls, saddles in the rafters, cricket memorabilia by the score and a warm outback welcome.

That's what you can expect to see when you walk into The Overlanders Steakhouse, an Alice Springs dining institution.

But if you think a rustic atmosphere means rough cooking and an old-fashioned dining experience, think again.

A check of the menu reveals some surprises. There are the signature dishes of the 'The Famous Drovers Blowout', (tastings of Camel, Buffalo, Crocodile, and Kangaroo), which you'd expect from a 'steakhouse'.

But who would expect to see a beautiful and extensive range of menu choices in the heart of Australia? Yet here it is. Including seasonal oysters from the Eyre Peninsula South Australia - all flown in daily, and expertly prepared and presented.

Not only that, if steak is not your preferred choice, vegetarians can be well catered for also, with a devoted menu. No more having to settle for a sad salad, plate of vegies or boring pasta. The chefs here excel at providing tasty and filling vegetarian fare. And the kids aren't overlooked either, with a special dedicated children's menu that's bound to delight them.

Your hosts, husband and wife team Mark and Jen Schrader, have experience in the hospitality and restaurant business, and are always on the lookout for ways to improve your dining experience. Since taking ownership of the Overlanders Steakhouse in March 2016, they've breathed new life into the business with the support of their staff to ensure diners - both local and visiting have a great experience.

Open seven nights a week and lunch for group bookings by prior arrangement.



  • So glad I decided to take a wander on the streets of Alice tonight. The Aurora hotel gave me a very helpful simple map of the town Centre so I went walkabout and discovered this incredible restaurant The Overlanders Steakhouse.
    Everything about it was outstanding.
    It's owned and operated by Jennifer and Mark Schrader and was a delight to experience.
    It's not tied to any hotel or chain so they have to survive through their unique product in a tough market.
    They have delightful touches like asking where you are from then putting your country flag on your table - and yes Scotland was in their stock of worldwide flags!
    Check out the kids menu.
    The interior design was amazingly full of character and atmosphere.
    They have a remarkable function room in the back which retains the same character throughout great for any special event. If I were a corporate event planner I'd fly my staff to Alice just for a real here.
    The staff reflect the need to be something special with great attentive and helpful service.
    This is a MUST for a night in Alice Springs.
    The food was outstanding - so much so that I think I'll return again to night to try some more delicious items from he menu.
    One minor point is they have no WiFi so go to eat and enjoy the atmosphere rather than spend your time on your phone and post your Facebook stuff when you get back to your hotel.
