Saturday lunch

Met with friends over lunch. First time here and met with friendly, attentive service and an awesome water view. The $12 for a dozen oysters was a great way of enticing us to visit. Also had the salmon salad which was fresh, tasty and the serving size was ample. Will be back again soon.

Our 2nd time here confirmed what a great place this is to eat, relax and take in the view. It was a perfect lunch venue on a warm humid day, the shaded deck and gentle sea breeze were wonderful. Staff, service, food and prices all good too!

Local revisit but nothings changed. Food choices poor and low quality. Staff untrained and unattentive. Couldnt get a serviette with bar snacks...they just dont get it!!?? Venue undergoing renos but obviously lack of maintenance...no working fans under the hot humid tent!! As stated by everyone view great food n service really bad.

I have been here many times. Great to meet friends for an afternoon beer or a light meal but the food is, well pub style and quite over priced.

The attendant taking the orders was seriously lacking customer service, was simply surly. Then, when we called a waitress to the table, to show her that there was a bug embedded in the gravy, she simply enquired about the chicken on the plate. Wow.

A great view by the boat harbor! Food was wonderful, specials every night, bar food, wings or a fabulous bowl of pumpkin soup with toasted bread! Yummy! Sit in the bar, outside or patio on side. Even play the pokies if you desire. The service was excellent, to include the greeter and the shuttle bus driver!

January is off tourist season so there's no live music on the weekends. The food here is decent, large portion and not very expensive. I tried the seafood basket, which came with fried calamari, prawns, imitation crab and fries with some Coke slaws. My friend ordered a Caesar salad with chicken. Tip: Ask for no anchovies if you don't want... More

This is a friendly local club with amazing views and fantastic boats to drool over!!!! We went for lunch and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. Staff were attentive and friendly and our meals didnt disappoint. It appears to be family friendly as well as fine for couples or groups. We would go back again.
