“Consistently good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

Having visited Grenny's for both breakfast, lunch and dinner, we have never been disappointed with the food quality and presentation. Just visiting again for breakfast, I was pleasantly surprised with the seawater omelette - what a great idea and so very delicious - as was my friend's lamb's fry
and bacon. If I could have any negativity it would be about the service - the quality does not match - could be a little more caring and attentive.

“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

Grenny's lamb's fry and bacon is great for those (not all) who like this delicacy. Available for breakfast and lunch. They also produce a great variety on interesing freshly made fruit and vegetable juices. Their exotic cocktail list on the wall (didn't indulge) included "Mint Juleps.

“Repeat visitor”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

Stopped for the coffee and cake special and enjoyed the experience, so revisited for lunch the next day. The first visit we were looked after by a very cheerful lady who, when finding out that they did not have any of the cake left that I ordered, moved the specials board so I could see to choose an alternative. She made us feel very welcome. Sadly the complete opposite happened the next day for lunch. The service was rather surly, and despite the small specials board leaning on the table next to us, the young staffer made us all stand and move to see it. With a tiny bit of effort, she could have very simply moved it for us. Food wise, the cajun fish burger was absolutely divine. Beautifully presented and cooked to perfection with lovely flavours. Restaurant quality, not your basic burger here. Partner also loved her meat dish too, saying it was very succulent and perfeclty cooked (can't remember what she had). Coffee was OK, but nothing special.

“Normally better....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013 via mobile

We've eaten here quite a few times. We live around 30 mins away and have often gone to Noosa just to have a nice value lunch here. Recently it seems the food and service has dropped. What used to be a big cesear salad is now lacking half the ingredients, and the same experience with some other meals. Seems when they are busy the standard drops, so we'll pop in only when it's not too busy in future. Hopefully it gets back to what it was not all that long ago.
