Great spot to watch the sunset

After spending the day in Noosa Heads we hopped off the Ferry at Pelican Boat Stop and headed for the Boathouse Sunset Bar. Great Melbournian barman and great views across the water. A really nice way to end the day!

Caught up with some friends over a casual dinner and all commented on the beautiful food. When it came to food allergies, a number of meals on the menu were gluten free, however the wait staff were not prepared to guarantee that they were completely gluten free, which reduced the confidence of the celiac diner present. That said, we all... More

Wasn’t that impressed with the menu but the service and cocktails were good. The food was ok but not memorable or overly impressive. Pretty average.

Decided it was time to great the better half to something nice; what we got was totally unexpected. It was layers upon layers of the best seafood that I have ever enjoyed! When you start from the bottom and work your way up, you just wish that your stomach could expand enough to take in all of the masterfully prepared... More

Went in too meet a friend for a catchup and have a drink. We noticed the seafood tower and ended up staying for lunch. This has to be the best seafood 'platter' ever, all the seafood was so fresh and the hot choices were perfectly cooked. The asian crab salad was out of this world and the battered barramundi so...

Amazing spot located on the water with great service and great food. We dropped in for lunch and ordered the seafood tower - fresh yum seafood. They also had kids menu and colouring in to keep them happy. We'll definately be back, the best fresh seafood we've had in a while.

We had take away Dory fish & chips. The dory was beautiful but the chips were undercooked and soggy. I think there's better places out there.

We love going to the Boathouse for lunches and dinners. The food is excellent with a wide choice of dishes, and the service is efficient and friendly. Plus you have the benefit of the great location - right on the water with pelicans to watch through the glass panels. Magical!
