“Loved the salt n pepper seafood basket !!”
Reviewed February 23, 2014

My gal and I dropped in for lunch before looking at some properties at Point Vernon, and we had a really good meal. We had not been to Gatakers before, but sort of knew of it.
I had the salt n pepper seafood basket, which was done very well and was quite filling. Hopefully the pic attached tells the story, & I would add that the other half of the bug & the scallops aren't in this shot, but were there! The lunch menu caters for a wide variety of tastes/budget, from "dude food" gourmet burgers/chips to more upmarket dishes (such as the seafood basket). For mine, the restaurant was a little quiet (2-3 couples, albeit on a cloudy / windy day) but the food was great...
The staff were setting up for a birthday (dinner) function of approx 30, and also had some other people there looking at the venue for a wedding reception. The venue is tucked away on the point, with great views / location, however I'm guessing probably doesn't enjoy as much drive by (walk-in) lunchtime traffic...

“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed February 22, 2014

Went down early on a Friday night and watched a spectacular sunset over the water, which is a bit rare on the East Coast. Atmosphere was so relaxed and friendly and the food was absolutely delicious. Best scallops and garlic bread I've had.

“Shame! Such a great spot!”
Reviewed February 19, 2014 via mobile

Could have cried. Husbands 61st birthday, so chose Gatakers because of Fantastic location and atmosphere but they need to get their act together. 8 of us for dinner (we were only patrons) and food was terrible. Whether the Chef or owner not supplying fresh ingredients we got frozen lobster not fresh for most expensive dishes. This is Hervey Bay not Brisbane or Sydney and if they don't lower their prices, have a cheaper menu and supply fresh ingredients they might as well close their doors. All 8 of us complained and it spoiled the party especially bill of $100 a couple. Will keep tabs on future food reviews and if positive will try again because of where it is.

“Best Steak in Hervey Bay”
Reviewed February 1, 2014

My family visited on a Friday night, quite busy but the lovely hostess spent time with us explaining the menu. When our meals arrived we were amazed at the quality and presentation. Great value for money, wonderful service and beautiful position right on the water. This will definitely become one of our favourites for a night out and have already booked a large group for a wedding anniversary celebration.
