My husband and I went here for dinner on Saturday night. The food was amazing. I could not fault it. The salmon was absolutely delicious and honestly was the best salmon I have ever had. The serving sizes were huge and great value for money. The service was good and the waitstaff went out of their way to make sure... More

Situated on the Marina in Manly Harbour this seafood restaurant is ideally placed. While we were eating we were able to watch boats coming and going and a Sea Hawk enjoying a recently caught fish. Four of us went for lunch and started with a a seafood platter between us. There was a variety of fresh fish and shellfish that... More

Went here New Year's Day to be told they had no oysters. Not a huge thing but when I ordered the seafood platter for 2 which comes with oysters I asked what would be in their place and I got nothing. Not even an extra cold chip. The prawns were soggy, the bugs were tasteless and the service was slow.... More

This Dinner was organised for me for Fathers' Day, but for some reason someone forgot to tell us that they are not opened on Mondays when we booked. I called back later to book for another day, which was logged in. On the night, everything started well, even when I have noticed some bad attitude from the guy looking for... More

Based on reviews, we visited this restaurant recently. Service is terrible. Surly staff, waiting 30 minutes for drinks and longer for food. Some meals passable, others below average and very overpriced. Staff won't leave water carafs on tables. Food in some cases looks like it had been already partially eaten. The fish and chip takeaway down thee road served better... More

My expectations of Wilsons Boathouse were quite high as it had all the boxes you would tick. Seafood, Water and some good write ups. The Service: Great. Our waitress was happy to chat and was very friendly. I liked her openess and ability to make us feel at ease during our meal. The Food: Unfortunately it wasn't value for money.... More

Waiter started with excessive banter that became instantly annoying. The chowder for entree was lacking the flavour of anything from the sea. Three of our five main platters brought out were incorrect and we were told only after we asked the waiter if the hot part of the platter was still to come. The other two meals were the reef... More
