Very Nice

First time here and it ticked all the boxes. Good service and friendly staff. One of the best in Hervey Bay. Only slight negative would be that the Duck dish was quite small.

The only mashed potato is sweet potato!! Sweet potato chips on almost every main course dish except pasta. Pasta dishes are good. Menu varied to suit all tastes. Service SLOW

This place didn't look much from the outside but we had a very tasty meal here. Best seafood I'd eaten in ages. Very fresh and cooked to perfection, without a fry in sight which was nice. Would definitely recommend.

Waiter brought over water and glasses while my partner and I looked at the menu. I was pleased to note that the cutlery and stem-ware were all polished (no water marks). Entree was served in a timely... More
