“Rustic unspoilt and great seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

We enjoyed a fabulous seafood meal here while on holiday along the Great Ocean Road. The staff were very pleasant and helpful and the seafood was fresh and beautifully cooked. We chose to sit outside on a Friday evening in this perfect unspoilt spot on the river.
The boathouse is rustic and if you enjoy a pretty natural setting...... it is magic!

“Sensational Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013

Go there regularly for both lunch and dinner and never had a bad meal. Service is sensational and food simply outstanding. Just the best place to have a quiet meal for 2 or take the extended family. Never changes always perfect.

“Great food & views!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

We went for lunch on a blistering 40 degree day. We sat upstairs as downstairs did not have A/C. WOW! What a lovely lunch. Between the four of us, we ordered the seafood platter, garlic prawns, chilli prawns and a chicken salad. The other dishes were great but the prawns were INCREDIBLE!!! The views were also great. You can watch people water ski from the balcony. Highly recommended for lunch.

“Great location, great food, great price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

What a pleasure to choose a historic boathouse with a great view for lunch, and then to find that the food and the prices were excellent too. My husband said his steak was the best he'd had since leaving Port Douglas four months ago. It's open at night too and dinner prices are higher and the setting inside is more formal with nice white linen tablecloths etc.but you can have the same food and prices as lunch if you eat upstairs at "the pub" which is just the upper part of the boathouse.
