Had breakfast at The Black Dog in Hervey Bay this morning. What a bargain - $9.95 for a scrumptious brekkie! Service brilliant - staff delightful and efficient! Don't miss it if you're in Hervey Bay! G & G Bribie Island

I am very fond of their very fresh sushi and my husband loves their seafood chowder. Lots of seafood on the menu which one expects from a Hervey Bay restaurant. The... More

We went here for lunch one weekend, and was very impressed with their menu and quality of food they serve. The price is excellent value and they fill the plate right up. I would definitely recommend this cafe for very hungry eaters looking for affordable price. Looks like I found a new venue to relax, eat and unwind during my... More

Fantastic food! the dog steak was absolutely amazing, we also went for the seafood platter and ribs with sides of French fries and a side salad. The staff were very friendly and the food came out very quickly. It was all cooked to order and served fresh and hot to our table, I would recommend this place. Must try this.

My sister and I came in at around lunch time and ordered the miso soup, focaccia, and a coffee. The focaccia and coffee were amazing. The miso soup, not so much to my liking. The meals did take quite some time to come out but the staff were very friendly and did apologise for the wait. The atmosphere was good... More

Great menu options. Felt Steaks overpriced. Both our meals were served promptly and were very tasty. However, the whole experience was tarnished, with being moved on by 8.15pm, on a Friday. Although we were still buying drinks and would have ordered coffee and dessert. We were asked if we were going to order dessert as the chairs beside us were... More
