Gone are the days of yesteryear!

My husband and I were looking forward to a “repeat performance” of a fabulous dining experience of yesteryear. We were disappointed to find Weis’ Restaurant now featured grills and that bugs were off the menu. The restaurant looked a tad tired (we were seated in a very small, atmosphere-deprived... read more

The best thing about this restaurant is the building it self. The entrance is like stepping into a stately home and the quaint grandeur of the rooms flow through out. The food is above average. A good place for tables of two as the ambiance of the rooms are perfect for this, or larger numbers as you can celebrate an... More

Absolutely disgusted! I had never been to Weis and as a birthday treat I was taken there before it closed. I wished I had never gone!! The $130 it cost for the two of us was ridiculous. The selection of food was dismal. The only thing I can say is it is probably just and as well they closed down... More

Alas the departure of the Weis family - once Bob and Jean and then Son Jeff. What a great place to go. First A La Carte then the change to smorgasboard. Punters came from far an wide. Great everything: Seafood, Roasts, Soups, Desserts. Then the downward spiral as non food Owners made a mess of things. Mercifully now it is... More

I'm lived in Toowoomba all my life & Weis was the place we would always go to for that special day. It's a shame it's closing because of disagreement with Toowoomba city council. People would come from hours away just to have lunch or tea there.

We have been visiting Weis Seafood Restaurant for at least 15 years. Each time we have visited, we have loved the old establishment, the gardens and the lovely staff. Our meals are always fresh and top quality. Desserts are to die for. I am saddened to hear they will be closing their doors on the 1st of March, 2015. Toowoomba... More

A sad moment to read of the closure of this iconic restaurant for Toowoomba - guests have visited from all over the world in it's lifetime. Growing up in Toowoomba, this was a special occasion treat packed with so many lifetime memories. Thanks to the Weis family and in more recent years the Pohlmann Family - and all the wonderful...

Was given a seafood buffet gift card for 2 and wow it was worth every cent. Fresh seafood, great salad, choice of lamb, veges, etc...Great selection of desserts. Service could not have been better, as soon as plates put to the side and away it was gone. Pity they are closing. Great advert for Toowoomba - best seafood buffet outside... More

Visiting my parents in Toowoomba, we decided to treat ourselves by heading to Weis'. And I am glad that we did! The food was beautiful, generous and fresh. The service was amazing. And the atmosphere was so special- like we really were guests in someones home. The seafood salad, caesar salad and potato salad were on point. The seafood chowder... More
