We visited to celebrate a family birthday (as we had been given a voucher). The initial service was ok and we were shown to a table near a fireplace. We were offered a drink and left to our own devices- no explanation on how it worked though this probably wasn't necessary. While wait staff were pleasant, it certainly felt more... More

We have been dining at Weis's every 3 years or so for at least the last 25 years. We are from interstate and visit relatives in Toowoomba who we also always shout along as well. Whilst there was a change in standards when the ownership swapped some years ago, the venue still offers excellent value for money. Before the change... More

My wife and I drove to Weis's, from Brisbane, with the expectation of a brilliant Seafood smorgasbord Sorry to say our expectations were not met On arrival we were greeted courteously, but not warmly, by the person who it turned out was the only one giving service and at $40 per head for lunch this 'service' could have been better...

I haven't been to Weis for ages, but it was well worth the wait. The food was exquisite. Very clean, massive variety of choice, amazing seafood both fresh and cooked. Salads were delicious and fresh. And the desserts were very nice as well. The service was fantastic, with the staff well trained and polite. Would strongly recommend going out for... More

Went to this restaurant with a large family to celebrate a special occasion. The large choices of food to eat was amazing. We all enjoyed the buffet with so many yummy choices. And the sweets were really enjoyed by all. The atmosphere was very relaxing and the staff were all so kind and happy.

Reading the reviews here (which we didn't before going) you'll notice the only good ones are a single reviewer, in other words friends of the owners. In town for Farm Fest with colleagues and staying just down the road, so thought we'd try it. After a small look around the buffet we decided to order off the menu. From reports... More

I've been to this restaurant many times over the years. While it's well known for its seafood, I always go for the roasts! They always have a couple of decent roasts on offer and other dishes like lamb shanks or chicken and rice. During December the buffet turns to a Christmas theme which I find quite boring as it lacks... More

Weis has not changed much in recent years. It is still a nice cosy place but the food is over priced and the quality is very ordinary. Often overcooked and low grade seafood. I visit every 2 or 3 years hoping it will improve but alas, not so. There are much better places to eat in Toowoomba.
