If you're like me and tend to work through your kids school holidays ("Bah! Humbug! All work and no play...") never fear, "Game On!" night is here!

"Game On!" is held every Tuesday night at The Highway (HWY)'s Lounge & Deck Bar.

We arrived with the kids, who quickly started up a game of table tennis whilst we waited for our meals. they have a great system of ordering by the way - meals are ordered and paid for at the kitchen's counter & patrons are given one of those pager gizmos which beeps when the order is ready to be collected.

Throughout the night, we also challenged each other to Connect 4 and Upwords. Together with the table tennis, this made for fun, simple and quick game play.

Challenge each other to table tennis out in The Highway's Deck & Lounge Bar on a Tuesday night...

Now the evenings are darker and cooler, the Deck & Lounge Bar's shade sails (beautifully illuminated with soft glowing colours) and plentiful, well placed ceramic and gas heating create a relaxing and welcoming atmosphere, enabling patrons to enjoy the great outdoors all year round.

For $35, the American platter's ideal for sharing - comprising braised pork ribs, buffalo wings, sliders & paprika shoe string fries. Image courtesy of The Highway's website.

This was my first dining experience at The Highway. In 2012, it won a swag of awards from the Australian Hotels Association (SA), including Best Outdoor or Non-enclosed Facility and Best Overall Hotel. Based on my experience, these awards were well deserved.

The Highway is well known locally for its quirky signage - I'm not entirely sure what this week's alludes to...

My son can't wait to return and challenge his mate to table tennis again. I have to say, I can't wait to return and try another incredible meal from the enticing menu. This time round I ordered the American style braised pork ribs which were delicious and cooked to perfection - with the meat falling off the bone and seemingly melting in my mouth. Kids' meals are $10 (10yo and under).

So, if you're looking to get out of the house for a meal and some fun, try The Highway on a Tuesday night, for "Game On!".
