Fantastic!

I went for the Moroccan lamb burger and it was so good, the chips with herb salt were incredible. The dip was delicious but the chips were so good, you didn't need the dip too. Great beer as well.

Loved Grill'd! The crew members from our reef tour all said this was the best place in town for a burger and they had to be correct. Though pricey, it was awesome. And they had gluten-free buns!

I always love grilled, their food is fantastic. this branch can get very busy, and waiting times can be very high so be prepared for that. I recommend the grilled mushroom and dukkah salad.

We went here twice during our stay. The burgers were really tasty and they were very accommodating for a child who was very fussy with what he wanted in his burger. The staff easily modified it and it made my son very happy. The tasting platter of the 3 types of chips is really good value. Would def go there... More

We eat here at Grill'd on the Esplanade on a monthly basis and have never been disappointed. The burgers remind me of the old corner shop burgers inclusive of all of the best and freshest ingredients. The Big Queenslander is my favourite and it is always filling. The famous fries are also sensational. Well worth a visit if you are... More

If you love burgers and chips, then this is the place for you. Every time I go I like to try a different burger - they have delicious chicken, lamb, beef, steak and salads. Favourite burger would have to be Zen hen! Plenty of seating inside and some out the front of the venue looking onto the water. A great... More

Nice modern restaurant, out on the esplanade front always full of people. The burgers were home made and fresh and were very filling. Service could improve a bit better, but over all a great burger place.

Grill'd offers a fairly broad selection of tasty burgers to suit almost everybody. This one is well located on the esplanade so you can watch the world go by as you eat.

The food was hot, fresh and tasty. We especially enjoyed the grass fed beef sliders and hot, crispy chips. It hit the spot after a day out on the Great Barrier Reef. The sidewalk seating overlooking the Esplanade was a special addition.
