Local artists perform during the evening and are great value. We saw Keaton McNeil who sang several John Williamson classics. Ideal background music while dining.

I ate an eye fillet that literally melted in my mouth. I was able to switch a few things around from the menu offerings and its always a good sign when the Chef is not too precious to do what the client wants. Our waiter was really helpful and we had a nice experience here for dinner on two occasions.
Menu choices are pretty balanced.
Wine list is a bit restricted, but there is enough to choose from.
Breakfast is pretty standard hotel buffet, but staff were again very friendly.

Food good ,services very poor. Resturant had a special on and didn't inform us which was what we ordered.
Out of the 5 restaurants we tried while in Hervey Bay this would get the lowest score mainly due to the services and the menu deal they had on which they chose to keep a secret

Had a great meal on Friday night. The chicken stuffed with fig is superb and there was a great tang to the vegies. The eye fillet was done to perfection. Cant beat the cheese plater to finish off an excellent meal. Very reasonably priced wine is an added bonus. Service was great as was the live music from Keaton.

A cut above most Aussie restaurants. The chef really knows what he is doing. We had a garden salad, perfectly dressed, and the shrimp and scallop linguini. This was fresh and perfectly done. Entertainment by Keaton was great. Desserts were also first rate - we had a marsapone bavaroise with poached rhubarb and a lime coconut tartelette..
