My partner and I always come here and have always had great food for a good price, always friendly and great atmosphere. Child friendly, my little one is always treated with colouring in and the meals for children are generous followed by a ice cream sundae. Be sure to stop by and also try the Belgium waffles too :)

Went to food freaks because it was listed in Google as having contemporary Lousiana cuisine. When we got there and it wasn't (the address was also wrong, had the old location which they moved from a year ago), we mentioned it to them and they weren't very helpful, said they had never heard of that, and I suggested they might...

Food Freaks is fabulous in every way. The food is delicious, the service fantastic and it is in a great location at the North Queensland Cruising Yacht Club. My partner and I regularly eat out in Bowen and Airlie Beach. This is our favourite restaurant by far. Be aware that it only opens for dinner from Wed - Fri. So... More

Freaks is the dining room of the North Queensland Cruising Yacht Club and a very comfortable place to eat. The food was fresh and good value. Defiantly worth a try if you need food in Bowen.

Upon visiting Bowen in the glorious Whitsundays, I uncovered a GEM of a restaurant called 'Food Freaks'..WOW!!! The location superb..think gentle sea breezes, horizon view, classic nautical inspired decor melded with gorgeous rustic touches. My family was greeted with big smiles and although the restaurant was clearly busy, we were made very welcome and seated very quickly. Opting for a... More
