While on holiday we've had the pleasure of dining at Coolum Beach Hotel 3 times in the last 8 days. All meals and staff have been outstanding everytime. Highly recommend the Macadamia Crusted Barramundi served with an Avocado Mango Salsa...outstanding! ! If you're in the mood for Fish and Chips....Flathead Tails....Yum! Cannot go wrong with any menu item. Great friendly atmosphere....wonderful staff.

Pub offered good food at a good price. Staff were friendly and helpful. We ate from the seniors menu and we're very happy with our meals.

We had a very nice lunch with food better than the normal pub, good venue with a pleasant atmosphere. Only bad comment was the staff seemed tired and grumpy, this is not a generalization but all of our group (4) all thought the same. They were not rude just lacking in hospitality. A good experience at Coolum Hotel but let down by service attitude.

We've been a few times now and unfortunately wont be back.
The food - overpriced and average quality. I had dry fish and hubby had overcooked steak. Another occasion the food was a bit better, however still a long wait and not worth the price.
The service - massive wait to order food, then another long wait to order drinks. Food took 45 mins - 1 hour to arrive. Which can be expected in peak tourist time but this was your average off-peak night.
Most staff are relatively friendly (and one of the younger girls was very friendly) however there is an older lady who is abrasive, condescending and races around appearing stressed. Her overall demeanour makes you feel like you have done something wrong and we observed patrons asking her a simple question - only to be berated. Poor form.
The best thing about this pub is the layout, good space and a kids room.
One occasion they had a face-painter for the kids which is a nice plus.
They have so many things that could make them great but it just seems like they cant get those essential elements to make it a place worth venturing to

Went here for a birthday celebration while visiting family, don't know that I would bother again, there was little to no service at all and the noise in the place was deafening, there was a State of Origin game on the huge oversized tv behind us and there was a fellow on the table next to ours yelling at it with no regard to anyone else in the place. The up side of the Hotel is the kids games room which kept the kids amused for the night and the face painter was a nice touch. The meal it's self was rather nice but a little pricey for what you get. Don't think i will be returning anytime soon
