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.

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

Decided to try this cafe as it was well reviewed on Trip advisor and deservedly so. Loved the friendly staff, casual ambience and wonderful food. My husband claims that the fish and chips were the best he had eaten in years and the seafood basket was fantastic
