    Great food choices and excellent quality dishes. Helpful friendly staff. Lovely venue with view of River Torrens. (Only slight negative was that they took a longer time than desirable to take our initial drink order and bring us the menus to read - even though the restaurant only had a small number of tables occupied when we arrived for lunch.)

    I am invited fairly often to lecture to medical specialists interstate Whenever I am in Adelaide, I ensure Sunday lunch at Jolleys Boathouse. Returning regularly speaks volumes.

    Had a great visit to Jolly’s Boathouse just before a show at the Festival theatre. Great service and delicious food which arrived promptly Can highly recommend both the Wagyu brisket and Mushroom and chestnut risotto.

    We enjoyed a relatively quick meal last Saturday night prior to a Cabaret show - restaurant had a lovely, relaxed feel & female staff were great - only criticism: our meals were fine without being fabulous (particularly for their price).

    My wife & I hadn't been back to Jolleys for some time due to our last disappointing visit - food was very ordinary,service very poor & the menu overall very average. But having decided to try Jolleys again we were happy we did.The menu is back to its former best - the duck & the scotch fillet are back! My fillet was tender & cooked perfectly .Just one suggestion - the scotch fillet should be accompanied with red wine jus.

    The food at Jolleys is the best. You look at the menu and it's had to decide what to eat because it's all fantastic. Staff are also wonderful. It's my favourite restaurant in Adelaide.

    Great service, food was good but I’d suggest ordering some thing from the specials menu the Beef brisket was incredible and the dumplings for a starter where perfect.

    Gorgeous location if weather is fine. Large portions and very good technique. Interesting wines by the glass. Warm room on cold, windy day - even next to full height window.
