    Great afternoon at Dooleys Waterview. The service was excellent, particularly Ebony. The food was tasty and the company pleasurable. We spent nearly seven hours eating, drinking and socialising. Great venue, great people - from the reception through to the cleaning staff. So happy to spend money supporting my club through a bad period.

    Under the current virus circumstances everything was handled very well. We asked for our veggies to be cooked not hard as they normally are, they were lovely

    I have eaten at Waterview a few times before and always had a great meal but unfortunately this time we felt disappointed. The customer service was welcoming and polite. The starters were on the bland side, lacking in seasoning. The main courses, my partner had Salmon and I had Barrumundi and both were cooked to perfection but the ingredients they were served with were a mismatch, the cous cous was overpowered with sultanas and the barrumundi was served on beetroot and the flavours worked against each other. I hope it was a one off bad night.

    We visit Waterview regularly, but this is the first time we reserved a table via the Fork. Booking was perfect, food and service were great - both value and quality.

    Dooleys is a great club with a well set out dining area. The food is normally very good, but this night was not a overly positive experience. Due to staff shortages, service was very slow.

    We were made very welcome by every member of staff we encountered. The food was delicious, and the wait service was second to none. Would thoroughly recommend going to Dooleys Waterview.

    We needed our table cleared after the main meal to allow for our dessert. Waited to no avail so cleared the table myself. Incidentally the table was very small for the 2 of us. The price of the waggu beef I thought was over the top. No receipt was given to show members discount and items for the $94 odd dollar bill

    It was a little overpriced for a club. Music was loud and hard to have a conversation. Food was good. Friendly staff. Not much choice for dessert.

    i order a dish that i thought would be packed with flavour but instead was rather bland and exceptionally small serving.

    I ordered a Sirlion steak which arrived by itself on a pile of fries. No veges, no salad! Poor value for money I thought. I also hate chili and there were few choices in the Starters that didnt have chili in it. This is the third time I've eaten there and was very disappointed this time. They need to be clearer in what mains are served with and give more non chili choices. Would need to be convinced to go back to be honest.

    Our party of four enjoyed dining at the Waterview Dining Room on a Frriay night when there's usually some musical entertainment. The piano playing subtly drowned out the noise of chatter and gave the place a relaxed atmosphere. the wait staff were attentive or easily available. The food and drinks ordering was easy. We didn't have to wait long and were soon digging into our meals. The meals were adequate and tasty. For me, it's a great venue to dine and catch up with friends,

    Dooleys Waterview is an excellent venue for a casual, relaxed lunch or dinner. The food is quite good with a menu range that suits most patrons. I particularly enjoy lunches with friends at the venue where we're able to eat and chat in a comfortable setting. Plenty of parking is also a bonus.

    I got the seafood basket and it didn't have any scallops like it said it would and it just tasted like a basket of salt, but my partner got the surf and turf and thought it was quite good.
