Had dinner with a few friends. Had a couple of pre dinner drinks in the sunset bar, saw a beautiful sunset. Everyone loved their meal and the desserts were amazing. I thought the meals were very reasonably priced and generous size. Staff were awesome very courteous and helpful.

When we sat down and looked at the menu we were a little concerned about prices, however portions were great and the taste absolutely unable to be better. Quality ingredients tell every time. We had the ciabatta with dukka and goats cheese.... I had the entree size of the Mooloolaba prawns and my kids had the boathouse burger and chips... More

This restaurant is situated right on the Noosa River. Superb views, sunsets spectacular. Beautiful food! The wait and bar staff all very nice and friendly. I have no luck with the lady on Front of House!! She can barely smile, answers my questions with a grunt, and I just want to walk away. Thankfully I have persevered, because if you... More

I have been here on many occasions for drinks with friends. During the day, the downstairs area is relaxing yet classy - great cocktails. An evening sunset up the Noosa River is divine from the upstairs bar as is the atmosphere as it is small so you can really enjoy a party vibe. Great for all ages!

Called in for a couple of drinks and to watch the passing boats and sunset. Nice place to sit on the balcony and watch the world go by.

Ate here on Friday night great staff knowledgeable about the menu and attentive without being intrusive. We had the 4 course menu which was $59 per person. Highly recommend - though pretty low carb which suits me not my carb monster partner.

Had heard this place was good, so made a booking. Nice welcome, with friendly informative staff. The room was a bit tired and not at all stylish- no view as it was dark. Great ciabatta to start with dukka and goats cheese. I had the calamari, cooked and seasoned perfectly, with a delicious wombok salad. My partner enjoyed his steak,... More

We chose this restaurant to celebrate a special night. Staff were lovely and we mostly enjoyed our meal. Entree scallops were delicious if a little small. My instincts always steer me away from seafood platters but this one sounded good. The fried prawns and fish was perfect. Calamari was chewy. Fresh prawns and bugs were a bit over poked and... More

We celebrated my daughters 50th birthday on the Terrace section of the Boathouse and the meal was superb. The room was exactly the right area to accommodate our family of 9 grandchildren and 12 adults Waitress was very attentive and friendly at all times, could not fault anything with this restaurant. great value for the money.

Was there for a wedding and loved it! Great view with great food and service. Highly recommend it. Over the river/estuary . Just be careful when parking your car under the trees! We came back to a new paint job courtesy of 1000 parrots in the trees above.
