We had a table at the window with a wonderful view over the river. The two course fixed menu was excellent and totally enjoyed by six people. A pleasure to visit and very reasonable.

The food was just super but we had to wait ages so we're were all starving and getting full on booze and it was quite busy so I think best to book but it's quite the spot for a good cheap meal for a week nite and lovely views staff were very friendly

We thought we were lucky to get a table, but when the food arrived, we knew we were. We had a seafood platter (translate as seafood mountain) for two. It was tiered with hot food at the base, things like coffin bay oysters and spanner carb on the second level, and prawns, bugs etc....... at the top. The hot food... More

Lovely place to dine, we had lunch of fish and chips and a pumpkin risotto both were very tasty. Wonderful friendly service, meals came out very quickly even though the restaurant was busy. We walked in without a booking, and we're lucky enough to get a table, if you were wanting a table by the window I would recommend to... More

Stunning river view and highly entertaining pelicans which sail gracefully by and rather clumsily take off. An entertaining sight to accompany perfect barramundi (comparable to Mooloolaba Fish Market's fresh from the boat snapper and chips). The brownie and macadamia nut ice cream made a highly satisfying finish to lunch

The location is superb being along the Noosaville river front. We decided for a takeaway, preferring to walk and picnic on the grass. The fish and chips were fine, not great. Unfortunately they don't serve sea scollops through the take away window,, not sure why

We enjoyed our dinner at the Boathouse. Excellent location moored on the river which makes for outstanding water views. Experienced staff explained the menu and they were flexible with accomodating changes for kids and (fussy) adults. Calamari and Prawn entrees were delicious. Steaks and fish cooked perfectly to order. Real skill in the kitchen and reasonable prices considering the quality... More

We had takeaway fish and chips from the Boathouse window for lunch. A nice generous serving of fish and chips that gave us some fun feeding the local seagulls. The park has ample picnic tables and lovely seats dotted around under beautiful trees.

Thank FamilyRattray
