Great breakfasts, friendly staff and quick and efficient service. Plus the added benefit of the view of the marina.

We had the house baked beans, hawaiian rice, smashed avo and a b&e roll (special order). I enjoyed the baked beans, even though it was a little under-seasoned, but husband didn't rave. Hawaiian rice is a great idea but lacked something in the execution. Prawns were yum! though. Smashed avo was too big for teenage daughter to finish. Price was... More

Great set up place for lunch or maybe dinner. We come for lunch and is not so busy. We like our food. The calamari is sensational. They have plenty wine to chose from the menu. And they have Italian beer on tab.

A couple of hours spent at lunchtime watching the marina over cold beer and the best calamari salad ever! Good service and pricing.

They have a great location. But very disappointing service, food and coffee. This was the 3rd time we have tried Lure as locals and it will be the last. Many restaurants on the Marina think the location should be sufficient. Attitude bad, Customer Service very average and the food really needs to be addressed. Many operators along the Marina needed... More

I can assure you that the Marina F & B outlets do not ride on location alone, and we are always working to create a positive experience for... More

We ordered poached egg and the middle was runny and yummy, cooked well. Along with nice sour-dough bread and a side order of delicious hash browns. The staff were attentive to our needs and we're funny and polite.

Thank JP0507
