Description: "The Strand Hotel Yeppoon (The Strand as the locals know it) has been a part of the Yeppoon landscape for over 60 years. We are conveniently located on Anzac Parade right opposite Keppel Bay and the magnificent beaches. The Strand has recently undergone a major refurbishment, completed in 2013, modernizing the hotel to cater for the growing area and needs of Yeppoon & The Capricorn Coast. The Cafe Bar, Beer Garden, Bistro / Dining Areas and Gaming room were renovated to create a relaxing and inviting atmosphere where patrons can enjoy some of the most amazing views and delicious food created by our award-winning Head Chef, Trent Scarr. Trent and his experienced team in the kitchen create extraordinary food at reasonable prices, catering to every taste. The Strand is the destination for fresh seafood and high quality dishes created with local and seasonal produce. With a large spacious Drive Thru Bottleshop servicing the needs of the community, it is a well-rounded destination that will please everyone.

“Its an improvement”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

No doubt the ambience has changed with the improvements which are great. That being said there is still a long way to go. Breakfast is pretty poor and that is probably why they are only doing weekends. Lunch & Dinner is good with excellent steaks & pizzas.
It was packed for the Lions game and it is still a pub at the end of the day but certainly should be congratulated for some long awaited changes.

“Can't wait for the rest to be done up!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013 via mobile

Have been here twice since the revamp. It is amazing! The bar is very attractive and stylish and the dining areas are nice especially the thick timber tables. Very cool. The steaks are beautiful and for lunch the steak sandwich is to die for - yummy chips too. All great value, not trying to be something they're not. The people who work here are very friendly, polite and efficient. It can get busy so make a booking on weekends. It will be nice when they do up the beer garden some more and the outside of the older part so it's more inviting to our of towners but it's still a very nice place to go in yeppoon.

“The newly refurbished Strand... a BIG difference”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

Today was a Sunday and SO great that they had all-day dining, as we were there just after 2pm. Fairly busy but a wonderful winter's day.
We live locally but this was our first visit to the updated old 'pub'. Locally now called a 'yuppy pub' but still has it's old charm and wonderful views.
A great selection of food which was served on time and hot. Had the seafood risotto (unfortunately it was fairly bland and porridgey) and oceanic pizza - Very tasty and filling. Service had also improved. We sat at the front windows due to the spectacular weather. Loved the fact that the windows can swing open during summer for the breezes. Our lunch went well into the afternoon! Wonderfully relaxing.
I can imagine, however, the noise from diners could become overpowering if booked out, but they have managed to provide more seating into separate areas.
Just hoping they keep the bands playing regularly here, especially on the weekends.
We will be back to try more of the dining menu..... :)

“The steak was great!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

While staying in Yeppoon for a couple of nights, we had dinner at the bistro in the Strand. We had a window seat overlooking the water. The food is typical of that served in quality bistros . My steak was done to perfection my only problem being that I could not finish it because of the ample serving. Service was good.

“Huge improvement”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

Have had lunch twice in the new look Strand Hotel. The first time my pumpkin salad was nice but overdressed, making it a little heavy. I decided to re order it on my next visit & it was very nicely dressed, not overdone. On my second visit our meals took over 45 mins to appear & we had to ask twice for them. The staff couldn't apologise enough & we were offered a free drink each, which was appreciated. Overall a good place for lunch & drinks with friends.
