Was a popular eating place but sadly went downhill over the past few years and has now closed. I went to an evening Christmas dinner about few years ago and we had been told to dress smartly. A rather corpulent elderly diner turn up dressed in a singlet,shorts & thongs! Enough! The building was so... read more

This venue has a great setting and atmosphere with the lunchtime food very tasty and freshly prepared. I shared a birthday lunch with two friends which we did enjoy but found the background noise from the music/room noises a little difficult to hear one another across a small table for 4. It is certainly a Toowoomba dining place with style.

After many years owned by the Weis family and an absolutely excellent restaurant it was "the" place for celebrations and to take out-of-town visitors. After it was purchased by non-food people, the downward spiral started from the day of their take-over to the day they closed. I hope whoever purchases it now retains the charm of what was once a...

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
