This is our favourite spot to go and relax and enjoy a wine and some nibble plates when in Yorkies. Unfortunately the restaurant is very hit and miss. Some meals have been ok others have not. We always eat here when in Yorkies to support the local business. They have had some great events.

Took an elderly friend visiting Australia from England there on Monday night. Up until then, we were eating the same food. However whereas I ordered the grilled fish of the day, she ordered the fisherman's basket. I did give here a taste of my grilled fish also . I was mortified she suffered with vomiting and later diarohea. What was... More

Dear Ms Nuffy, Whilst I have read your review and also politely explained to you and your friend that we were empathetic to her illness, the facts still remain that we are in no way responsible for her illness. The 24hr response was due to our protocols having to be adhered to as followed: 1. The Cairns City health department... More

The staff were totally rude and no at all interested in their jobs. The worst service I have ever seen in the world, just unbelievable. The food was late and quite honestly disgustingly bad. We could not believe that such a beautiful location was run by total morons for management. We were on Holidays in Trinity Beach and were warned... More

The service here is appalling, almost the worst I've experienced in cairns. I thought I'd give the place another chance after previous bad experiences, however nothing has changed. The staff are just so rude, hostile and unwelcoming that it is not a pleasant experience. The food is only average and is expensive so not worth feeling the negative vibes coming... More

When my girlfriend arrived from Victoria she suggested going to meet up at the Yorkey's Knob Boat Club. As a Cairns local this is not the first place I thought about going to. It is a 20 minute drive and it's not a normal touristy spot that I would have picked. It is off the beaten track but should not... More

Looked nice so thought we would give it a try. Staff very pleasant and friendly, great wine selection, however unable to eat outside in a beautiful atmosphere unless you order from the bar snacks menu ??? Entree of Goyza was undercooked, sadly as flavours were nice. My steak was underwhelming, ordered medium rare and got med at best n was... More

I am so impressed with the new Tenderhooks restaurant at the boat club. This is the best restaurant for Steaks in Cairns with a fantastic location to boot. What a wonderful idea for people who want a more classy experience. Great addition and alternative dining option to the more casual boat club/pub feel. We will be coming back and telling... More

We've been a few times now to the Yorkey's Knob Boat Club and it's always a winner. Sitting on the deck in the late afternoon watching the sun go down over the marina is lovely. The meals here are spot on and well priced and the staff are friendly and helpful.
