Hummm, not quite what I expected. I’ve been here a few times for drinks and the view. Decided to try the food.
When I went up to order, the staff were standing around talking, I had to wait a bit even though they saw me standing there. There were 12 customers in the whole place and yet I waited 42 min for a few prawns.
The food is very average for the prices they charge, you can get better pub food the Australian for example. The staff take a while clearing tables. It never looks good to walk into an establishment and have plates and glasses taking up tables!!
Will probably try one more time to see if anything changes, fingers crossed the next visit is better!!
The view and atmosphere is fabulous.

Having been away for a couple of years I was keen to come back to the Quarterdeck for a meal and wine. What a disappointment. The tables were full of glasses and dirty plates. We had to ask staff for them to be removed. The bar was sticky and the staff were sullen. It needs to improve!

It's a great little deck out the back with lots of seating variation, perfect to take advantage of the incoming sea breezes and a wonderful view out to Maggie Island and looking across the bay.

The food however is really average. My salmon fillet ($29) was one of the smallest I've seen for quite some time (and a bit on the dry side), and the salad with it was pretty scabby too. I was looking forward to the goat's cheese in the salad, and I think they waved some leaves over the goat, as there were a few scant crumbs only.

My partner's rump ($29) was fine, but the similar kind of salad was similarly small, and there weren't very many beer battered chips (and soggy from being under the steak). We ordered the broccolini side dish ($9) which was just as well, due to the small serving sizes of the mains. Just as well the heat of the day melted the herb butter eventually, as they weren't hot/warm when they came out. We could have done with another side had we known.

The staff were full of smiles, so it's a shame the food lets you down. Sorry guys, maybe you're relying on a captive audience, but it just wasn't up to scratch even as a 'normal' pub, let alone an upmarket one. However, it would be a great spot to have some drinks and chill out!

The service, range of drinks and ambiance makes this venue worthwhile of a visit. The food is very good with a good range and presents good value for money. A great spot to enjoy a drink/meal overlooking the bay and Magnetic Island.
