I have been here many times and have decided I won't be back. The meals are majorly over priced, the milkshakes taste like coloured milk and we had to wait ages. Really not worth it even tho the view is amazing

Fantastic views of the locker valley and table top mountain which you can walk to. Two great play areas for the kids to play. Great to have a family pick nick at.

Come here when ever we can't think of anywhere to take people when they come to town. Food is always good but the people behind counter are sometimes rude. Don't let them ruin your visit. Views are worth it

Great views of the valley. Go on bush walk to the waterfall (an easy 10 minutes) & enjoy the cool green environment.

Whilst staying in Toowoomba for a conference, we were treated to dinner at this fascinating venue. Set overlooking the Toowoomba range it was a lovely way to finish off a few hectic days. The food was well prepared, fresh and tasteful. They have an good range of wine supply, in particular the red. With the assistance of great company I... More

Great views overlooking the region. But this was overlooked due to the overpriced lunch. It was very disappointing for a $15 sandwich that was nothing special. (Chicken pesto prosciutto) sounded great but didn't taste so good

The first time we've travelled through to toowoomba and we are surprised. Wanted to do something special and this place should have been it. Views are spectacular but everything else could have been much better. It's not cheap but would be worth it with if it just made more effort with better food and service.
