Wouldn't change a meal by leaving the salad off and the dressing runs through the meal, Not good when the young children have allergies. When we asked for this we were told the chef won't change the menu.

Thank-you for the team at The Boathouse for a sensational dining experience. Your scallops and oysters were delicious, and our mains were delightful. All your staff were friendly and efficient throughout the evening. We can't wait to return to enjoy your view with a chilled bubbles and scallops for a lazy Sunday lunch!

Came here with some colleagues in March and had a wonderful time, staff was very attentive and friendly and we enjoyed sunset drinks overlooking the water. We hated the seafood platter which was very generously portioned. Would like to come back here for date night with my boyfriend sometime -very romantic rooftop bar which is generally quiet:)

I really enjoyed my experience at The Boathouse. Our group was welcomed and seated by one the owners Phil, which was a nice touch. We ordered the seafood platter as a main and it was delicious, so fresh! I also tried a few of the cocktails and I would highly recommend the 'Sheena Baby'. I would highly recommend this waterfront... More

The food quality was good, but fairly small serves. Expensive for what it was. Ambiance was not great, no tablecloths, not even paper ones. The background music was too noisy, so customers had to talk louder to compensate, which just made things louder. The younger staff were OK. The 'manager' wasn't very efficient. Hasn't improved in five years, so will... More

Thanks for the feedback and we are glad you enjoyed the food. It would be great to know which dishes you had when dining with us as "small portion sizes" is not a comment we hear often. We would also be keen to understand better your comments in relation to management efficiency so we may have the ability to reflect... More

Finally got to the boathouse this time around and we were not disappointed. We just felt like a small lunch and opted for their lighter menu selection. The service was very nice, the view excellent, and the meals nicely presented - a bit pricey but it was worth it. Fish and chips is excellent here!

We recently had our wedding at the Boathouse and it was just perfect! Loads of compliments on the food and how great the staff were. Everything ran smoothly and our guests had a wonderful time. Tahlia was an absolute pleasure to deal with and made it easy to organise our reception there. Would recommend without hesitation.

On a recent motoring holiday through the Sunshine Coast, we decided on a light lunch at the boathouse. From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel welcome by all the staff, who were very friendly, as well as efficient. The bistro was about 50% full, but we weren't kept waiting for long.

Wonderful view of Noosa River and Noosa Heads. The food is average for the price, but the staff are friendly, on the whole. Good place to go to have drinks and a memorable meal with a great view to give you a great memory of your visit to Noosa. The Sunset Bar is not to be missed for afternoon drinks
