Very disappointed and really felt for the bride and groom on there very special day. Felt there wedding night was ruined by some rude staff and manager Sue wanting music that low by 8.30pm ,guests were singing louder than music. Sue could only state Noosa decibal laws are different and had to be kept low because of people complaining. This takes effect from 10.00 pm but music was put low one and a half hours early. Staff were clearing up so early and shutting doors on deck by 9.30pm and made guests feel like it was time to go. Even though there were still 30 or so guests still buying there very expensive drinks with inconsistant prices they were wanting people out by 10.00pm . I can only guess they were pleased with their takings for the night and had had enough. They managed to kill the atmosphere that much that everybody had left by 9.45pm. Not the way any one would want to remember their wedding night. Hope that Sue the owner and her staff take a long hard look at how they can improve there customer service. Oh and maybe improve there dessert menu and not just have the wedding cake which was supplied to them. They substituted there dessert for a few canopes before seating, how easy was that for them. Guests all paid for a four course meal .

After a long day at Noosa we visited the River Deck Restaurant for an early dinner. Our group comprised of four adults and four children? The staff right from the outset couldn't have been more helpful and were extremely child friendly. We were given a nice table overlooking the river, rather than being tucked away, as in some establishments, because we had children with us. All the adults ordered from the dinner set menu at $32 for 3 courses and all commented at the excellent value and at the quality of the food. The children's set menu at a main, an ice cream desert and a drink for $15 was good value. A full set of clear plates was testament to the quality of the food. The staff were attentive, courteous and interacted with the children well. In all a really nice place to eat with lovely views up and down the river.

We had our wedding at the Riverdeck Restaurant in Nov 2012. The service was excellent, the choice of quality wines and drinks was excellent, the food was outstanding and Sue's (the owner) knowledge of how to organise a successful wedding, was second to none. All the referrals she provided for cakes, flowers, decorations etc, were excellent referrals and their delivery was also spot on. Thank you to everyone involved for making our evening an incredible one. The breakfast the next day for all the guests was also of a high quality. Some of our guests returned the next evening to dine again.

I happened to be in the area and had heard about the views at this restaurant so 'lunch pangs' directed me to an outside table overlooking the water and a flotilla of pelicans. There was a cheap lunch special on offer and with the view I was enjoying I really didn't care if it was good or not but it was EXCELLENT. A John Dory fillet with chips and salad and it was exceeded my expectations for what could have been basic fish and chips. The fish was just beautifully cooked!
While soaking up the view and savouring the tastes of my meal I watched the owner as she fed and talked to a flock of pelicans lurking just outside. She addressed each one by name and was scolding one of them for being a 'cranky boy' all week.
What's not to like about a place like this?
