Our squash club celebrated the end of year at the Waterfront Restaurant. There were 50 of us. The food was fantastic, service awesome. Very friendly staff. The view at sunset, with waves breaking right beside us. Made for a wonderful night. Thank you Waterfront Restaurant

This restaurant is attached to the shabby but OK ReefWorld Aquarium. It was set up inside for a wedding that night, but we had a large group of two families with kids on the patio overlooking the ocean, which was beautiful. The food was reasonably priced (for Australia) and OK (not fabulous). Our server was friendly and could have been... More

My husband and I held our wedding here and we could not fault the venue (who doesn't love a water view), service, wines or food! The pork belly with scallop was my highlight! We are both from hospitality backgrounds (as were a lot of our guests) and we are still receiving compliments about the food & service. Unfortunately, we are... More

Restaurant was shockingly bad service - waited 45 mins for lunch (grilled barramundi and chips, 2 serves of kids chicken nuggets and chips). Waitress didn't like or tolerate children, yet was reluctant to give us a piece of paper they could draw on during their 45 min wait. She don't want to give my toddler a plate as she didn't... More

Stumbled across this building on the beach on our morning walk and found it to be a restaurant with the most amazing views of Fraser Island. So we went in and booked a table for lunch... The food was really tasty and the waitress was very friendly and was only to happy point out all the islands for us. We... More

We booked our Christmas Function a few weeks ahead & the booking was confirmed by a phone call. However when we arrived the tables were not set. The wine we ordered was substituted with no explanation or apology. Food took 1.5 hours to arrive. Having lived in Hervey Bay for over 15 years, this is the worst restaurant I have... More

My daughter and I stopped in here to have lunch and we were not disappointed. It was high tide so we enjoyed the view of the peaceful blue water, the sound of lapping waves and in the distance Fraser Island. Such a tranquil setting to enjoy our lunch.
