The dine-in side of Grunske's has a very nice outlook from the deck with views over the Bundaberg River which offers a beautiful cool breeze and I agree their prices are good but the downside is that the food is pretty average.

The Take-away side is ridiculously overpriced! I bought two pieces of crumbed, wild caught Barramundi (which were cooked to death by the way). The portion sizes were not the same as the ones on display, they were so small that if you joined the two pieces together, they would have made a small piece of fish... not impressed considering I was charged $18 just for the fish!

Would I go again? Yes I would go there to eat in (with full expectations of an average meal) or for drinks on the deck because it offers such a pleasant outlook however I would never order takeaway from there again.

My score for Grunske's is 2.5/5 ...

Been here few times and generally good , this time below average and disappointing . A bunch of salad chucked in the plate , way over cooked green beans that became brown and some weird hard to identify roasted flavour less vegetable looking like pumpkin . At least the fish was cooked nicely . Sloppy and sour tartare . Not good value for money and disappointed .

We went in a large group for a Christmas Party - our meals had all been pre- ordered, so I would have expected no trouble - they knew what we all were having. But when some of the meals came they were missing things - chips missing on a couple of plates and salads missing from others, when we told the staff they said we were required to line back up in the queue to have the problem sorted. The line was taking at least 30 minutes to get to the counter - we'd already stood in it to get our drinks and if we had done it again our meals would have been cold. Very unhappy customer and I won't be going back any time soon!!

We placed a pick up order for our Christmas Lunch and needless to say, as per past reviews - this place really stacked up! Our order was packed and ready when we came to collect it and the family said the prawns were simply delicious. Very reasonably priced and glad that the receptionist from our resort had recommended you. Thanks for making our Christmas tasty and easy to organise!
