“Best lamb shanks ever!”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

Service was great. Food was amazing we had the speacial of the best lamb shanks ever. And it was all in walking distance to where we were staying. The breakfasts are a great offer too, so cheap and huge servings for what you pay for.

“Location, location, location”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

Great spot, occupying the corner of James St and Gympie Tce. it's usually always sunny with great open access and view out across the road from the river. We found ourselves having several breakfasts, (great special until 11am only $6.50 for either poached or scrambled eggs, toast and bacon or tomato).
The lunch $20 special was also a great inducement or indeed just coffee and at time.
Very nice waitresses always very pleasant, will be back.

“Most abysmal service”
Reviewed September 5, 2013 via mobile

My friend and I attended for a meal here as part of a leaving-noosa treat. We ignored the fact that despite how the restaurant zacharys next door was heaving, lazy river was empty but for one table of one person. We requested a table for 2 and were told to "sit wherever". Throughout our entire stay we were largely ignored by the waiting staff and even ended up retrieving both the specials board and the dessert board for ourselves, and on asking the choice of ice cream flavours, listing possibilities until the waiter guessed whether or not they had them.

A real shame because the food was lovely, but totally overshadowed by poor service. There was no excuse with only 1 other table occupied at our time of eating!

Recommend Zachary's (previously attended) right next door instead!

“Nice place, great staff”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

It just works, good food with friendly staff. The place is sort of split in two which allows people to find their own cosy corner and get away from a noisey crowd if required. Good sunny deck that takes in the river and is great for wqtchign the world go past

“Leisurely but certainly not lazy.”
Reviewed August 30, 2013

We had loved the previous restaurant here so we decided to try Lazy River for a birthday celebration. From the man who took the phone booking to every member of the staff on the night, everyone was so friendly, helpful and efficient. The menu was enticing as were the daily specials and such huge servings. No minute little parcels or stack here. We all loved our chosen dishesl and the extra touch added to our birthday cake was most appreciated. Bookings are advisible as others have obviously discovered that this restaurant is certainly worth visiting whether locals or tourists.
